This is the day

Today is the day!

This little guy starts Kindergarten today.


After reassuring him and stomping out any fears he had, he became quite excited about this new adventure.

Me? Not so much. Don’t worry, I kept it hidden. :)

I’ve already done “this” 5 times so I should be a pro at it. Not so much.

Nonetheless I put on my big girl pants and did not shed a tear in front of him.

I made him a good breakfast and made sure he had everything he needs to bring with him.

He had a big smile on his face, even though we had to walk in the cool rain to his bus stop.


Of course we couldn’t do “this” without the other 2 little people.


He looked so small as he walked up the steps of the bus.

My little man is growing up and his world grows bigger today.

I pray. I hope…that this world is good to him.

I hope that those of you that have children in school already or starting school today, that they have a fantastic year of learning.

Here’s to all the teachers that will teach them. Here’s to all the other important people that work at schools with children. Here’s to the bus drivers that drive them to & from school. And here’s to the homeschooling Mom’s & Dad’s too. May all of you be given an extra dose of patience & love for these young lives that you will indeed touch. 

I’m off to shed those tears on my way to work. :(

Until next time, love & hugs, Lori

PS My wedding smore cupcakes were a hit! As soon as I have pictures of the wedding cupcake display that I did this past weekend, I will post a  picture and the recipe for those that have asked for it!

Sending hugs and best wishes to you and your little man that his year will be super wonderful!

Leave it to you to also mention the teachers, the school staff, the bus drivers... :) It takes a village to raise our children and these people are definitely one of those who play a big role in the lives of our children. :)
