Back to School
It's a bittersweet day for me today. All three children went off to school together, Joshua for the very first time. They are all happy and excited, and were ready way before time to leave. It seems like just yesterday I was taking Christopher for his first day of school, carrying my tiny baby. Mrs Thomas has taught all my children their first year at school, so both Josh and I were very comfortable in her classroom.

He looks so cute! This was the smallest shirt they stock, and still has plenty of growing room.

Playdough makes any transition easier!


And this is what he was doing as I left. I got a quick kiss and a hug and he turned his back and started playing with the boys. Suddenly I am not the most important thing in his life any more.

Oh, hugs and kisses to Josh, and to you! I don't know how I will feel when Naomi first steps through the school gates!

Thanks for all the comments :) Everyone has settled in really nicely this year, and we are looking forward to a lot of fun.
