I simply cannot believe it. It is not possible that my son is old enough to go to school. He's just a baby. Well, maybe he's a toddler, walking before he's a year old, trying to get into everything. Or maybe he's the kind two year old who notices that his sister spit up and runs to get a towel before I've even noticed. The three year old boy getting faster and faster, and loving all things outdoors, sun or rain, summer or winter? The four year old going to preschool, and the only boy who could pay attention and sit still all class? This first born of mine, who reminds me of myself but with a lot more physical agility, is five years old, and he started school today. The pictures are for you Mom, in memory of every first day of school we ever had, which always started with a picture. It was hard to get a good shot in the rush of getting two kids out the door, but here are my three favorites. The top photo is on our front porch, and the other two are at school: outside the classroom and at his seat. I love this five year old, and I think that he will like school. The first day was fun!
