Of course Caroline wanted her picture in front of the tree too. ;)
We dropped Caroline off at daycare and she gave her Bubba the sweetest hug. Walter and I took Max for a fun, first-day donut breakfast to celebrate the occasion.
We got to his school and Max walked in like such a big boy. We got to cross the street with the crossing guard and everything.
Once inside, we had to wait a few minutes in the cafeteria until the teachers were ready, so of course we took the opportunity for some more pictures.
We made it in and Max's teacher, Miss Clarkson, greeted us.
Max put away his backpack and lunch box in his cubby and sat down at his table. Walter and I each spoke with him and hugged him and then we left our big boy there, for his first day.
Max's buddy, Wyatt, from church is in his class! His mom sent me this picture.
Nobody cried! Although, I did get a little choked up for a minute on the way to work. Luckily work was way too busy for me to think about it much. Max had a half day for this first day and all next week. I took my lunch and picked him up. All the parents stood outside the front door and waited for our big kindergarteners. It was so sweet to watch Max come out, searching for a familiar face, see me and start grinning.
I can't believe this big kid, was once this little guy. Wow.
