1st Day of Kindergarten

Today was a good day, but I didn't expect it to be.

I knew it would be hard to say goodbye to RJ this morning, BUT last night, as I was laying in bed with RJ, he put my mind at ease. I was bawling....RJ leaned over, hugged me as tight as he possibly could, and shed one little tear. He whispered in my ear, "I'm gonna miss you too momma!"

That made me smile. For some reason, when I got up this morning, I was okay. That must have been what I needed.

RJ was so excited about school this morning that he accidently woke up at 6 instead of 7. He also changed his clothes so that he could wear the shirt that he had picked the night before. (he didn't see it at first)

Rick and RJ headed off for school, and I was there to pick him up when he got home. He said that he loved it all.

Brushing his teeth.

Heidi who moved to my bed at some point last night, was unaware that today was any different. RJ still kissed her bye though.

RJ isn't too cool to take a quick picture with mom and dad before school.

When I picked him up. He says he LOVED it!
He colored a pretty cool picture of Franklin on his first day.

I am SOO glad he enjoyed it!

He did a great job choosing his outfit. I think he looks like a stud. RJ is smart, he knows how to set the tone on the first day with his wardrobe!
