The First Day of School

Today was the first day of school for the kids, and they both had a GREAT day!

Ally is in the two year-old class that meets three days a week. She has several friends in her class that were with her last year, and I think it helped make the transition a little easier for her. She loves school, but for some reason has been a little clingy and apprehensive the last couple of days.

Carter began his last year of preschool before he begins Kindergarten! I cannot believe that this time next year my baby boy will be going to school every day all day! Where has the time gone? He will be going four days a week this year, which is a big jump from the two days a week he went last year.

Ally has two terrific teachers this year! Ms. Whitney, shown here, and Ms. Lauren pictured below! I know she will grow to love them!

Carter also has two fabulous teachers! This is Ms. Fran, who is a very special teacher to me! She was one of my 5th grade teachers, and the first teacher I had when we moved to College Station!! She is wonderful, and I am so happy that Carter is going to be one of her students!
Carter also has another teacher, Ms. Nancy. She was out today to be with her husband, who had some medical issues. I know that these ladies will do a great job preparing Carter for Kindergarten!
I will admit that there were several days this summer that I couldn't wait for school to start back up, but as the date approached (and lots of our friends started Kindergarten) I couldn't help but feel a little sad...sad that my babies are not babies anymore! Somehow, in the midst of all the craziness, they grew up on me. I wish I could somehow stop the clock and freeze time, but instead I am going to thank God for all of our blessings and enjoy every minute...because before long they will be moving into the dorm for their freshman year of college...at A&M! :)
