1st Day of Kindergarten

My little boy is all grown up. (sniff, sniff). Tyson went to his first day of Kindergarten today. We had to wake up REALLY early; like 6:00 a.m. early. His school starts at 7:45 and the teacher, Mrs. Smith, wants them there at 7:35. So I was up at 6 just to get myself presentable and then Tyson's little eyes popped open at 6:20 and he was up and so EXCITED! He was dressed and ready for breakfast faster than I have ever seen the kid move. (He had his outfit picked out the night before and was so excited to wear his new Star Wars shirt) He ate his breakfast in record breaking time and was ready before 7:00a.m. WHOA! It must be the 1st day excitement jitters, because I can guarantee that this kind of behavior won't last long. So we drove to his school, which we only live about 1 mile from, but with all the traffic from the morning rush it takes about 15 minutes to get there. I then get to walk him into the school, which has about 1200 students--no joke, and then down the long Kindergarten hall to room 323 where his teacher is waiting with smiles. She is such a nice lady, as far as I can tell. She reminds me of my mom.Taryn wanted her picture taken with big brother on his special day. She was also up around 6 and ready to go. I think she thought she was going to get to go with Tyson to school, and was not to pleased when she had to leave her big brother and come back home with me. This is going to be a BIG adjustment for her. She adores Tyson and is going to be a bit lost without him, as will I. I did, however, put on my "big girl panties" and never shed a tear this morning, which I am very proud of myself. We pick up Tyson at noon today, but most days he will stay until 2. It is all day Kindergarten. WHOA! A new door opened for everyone today!

He's so big! I love his grin in both his pictures...he's so proud and excited to go to school. I'm sure he didn't stop talking on the drive home!!
