"If you are still in the process of raising children, be aware that the tiny fingerprints that show up on almost every newly cleaned surface, the toys scattered about the house, the piles and piles of laundry to be tackled will disappear all too soon and that you will—to your surprise—miss them profoundly."
-Pres. Thomas S. Monson

First Grade

It's here!  The first day of school!  Back to schedules, back to bedtimes, back to homework!

It was such a good day today.  Will loves school even though he will tell everyone else that he hates it.  His teacher this year is Mrs. Kendall, and we couldn't be more excited.  This morning he let me take one picture before he ran straight to the car to get buckled.  When we pulled up to the school, I had barely put the car in park before he was off and running in the front doors.

My mommy-heart hurts knowing that he will now spend more waking hours outside of my home, but seeing how excited he is to learn helps.  He's such a smart kid and I can't wait to watch him grow this year.  Is it silly that I'm excited to help him study for spelling tests?!


  1. Tyler didn't have a single spelling test in 1st grade.

    What a good lookin' kid!

  2. So cute. My feelings about school remain the same. Love that they go and hate that they go.

  3. The bottom picture of Will running into school is priceless!
