School Days

September 5th was Seth's first day of Kindergarten, and boy was he ready and excited to go!  We got up and had a yummy breakfast and got a few things done until it was time to catch the bus just after noon.  The bus stop is just at the house across the street, so already we love the convenience!

New clothes?  Check.  Giant backpack?  Check.  Cutest cheesy smile?  Check.

Here comes the bus!

Bye, Mom!

I can't believe I didn't even cry a little bit, and I'm usually the biggest bawl baby of all.  All morning, I was prepared to lose it a little bit, but I was so happy and excited for him. 

Lydia was a little lost without him for a few hours.  The minute we walked in the house she would ask "Where's Seth" and "When is Seth coming home?" about every 10 minutes while he was gone.  I didn't quite realize how much I depended on him for her entertainment.

When we met him at the bus stop, he bounded off the bus and said school was "amazing" and that he already has two new best friends, Solomon and Emily.  It's going to be a great year!


Then on September 11, Lydia headed off to her first day of preschool.  She has a backpack "just like Seth" (minus the princesses on his) and was ready to get going.  Her new BFF Miriam is going to preschool there too, so she was excited to see her. 

 When we got there, she put her shoes in the shoe bin, hung up her backpack and was so ready to jump into things that she almost forgot to say goodbye to mom!  She loves Miss Tammy and wears her backpack around the house all day and asks when it's time to go to preschool again.
