Off to school!


We can hardly believe that the time has come, but yesterday was Jake's first day of school. He has been so excited for so long that he was surprised on Wednesday night when I told him it was the next day. He woke up at 7 ready to go, but we had to wait until 9:30 which was pretty hard. He literally ran in the door when we got to the school and while other mom's were lingering, he told me bye several times trying to hint it was time for me to leave. When we went to pick him up he yelled," Hey that's my mom!" and came running to tell us about the fun he had. The saddest part is that he doesn't get to go back until next week. We then made a celebratory trip to McDonald's for a fun lunch. I know some day we will look back at this picture and think how small he looks, but for now I think he looks so big. We love you kiddo!
