First Day of School!

I can't believe I'm typing this... We just sent Colton off for his first day of school (pre-school) and on a BUS no less! AAGHH! He's only 3! As soon as the bus pulled away I started bawling! Good thing Seth was here to comfort me!

One thing that helped, though, was that Colton was VERY excited to ride the bus. When the bus pulled up he RAN to it (while we're yelling to not run into the street!) And, of course, here are a gazillion pictures of it all!He walked right outside and sat down on the sidewalk to wait for the busAt one point, he got tired of waiting so he just started walking down the sidewalk!



Now I can't wait for him to come home and tell me all about his fun day!

Yeah...go Colton! He is so handsome and the Thomas backpack is no surprise at all. How did his day at school go?

I bet you guys didn't know he could run that fast did you?! Oh the stories you will be able to tell him someday about chasing the short bus! We are glad he had a good first day at school, and even more glad he is a fellow Cortina Tiger. And I'm only slightly jealous that your only child is being taken and picked up on a bus for school FOUR days a week!;)

Colton is awesome! And you are awesome too becky. I think I would be bawling too if I had to see Jackson ride the bus for the first time!

That is too cute! It is pretty hard sending the first. When we dropped Owen off at school I started crying and Corbin said, "It will be alright mom! Do you need a hug?" Colton is looking so grown up!

That is so cute! The first day of school is always bitter sweet to me. I'm like you. I can't wait to hear all about their day. Although it is so hard to get details out of them.

I found your blog. Email me your address and I'll invite you to my blog. Yes, you need to go private. After this post anyone could find your cute kid and kidnap him. Did I know you were pregnant? You have a baby on the sidebar of your blog floating around as if you are one with child? Am I the last to know this? I'm so sorry. Congrats!!!
