I've been anticipating this day with mixed emotions. Somedays I can't wait to send Dylan off to school. It's so much easier to run errands with two children. I said easier not EASY (It's funny how less than 3 months ago 2 kids seemed so hard and now 2 seems like a welcome break.) Plus I've been really excited for all the fun things that Dylan will get to experience and learn. But Kindergarten seems like the beginning of the end. I mean 5 1/2 years ago I held this little bundle in my arms and vowed to take care of him and not let anything bad happen to him. And now I'm just supposed to let him go out into the world with all of it's influences. Today, Kindergarten, Tomorrow, High School, and then he'll leave for good. I guess I have to face the fact that my little boy won't be little forever and Kindergarten is fast forwarding those thoughts. So since I can't put it off any longer here's my little guy's school debut.

Doesn't Kenzie look sad, I think she's going to miss her big brother.

Mason too!

Off they go! I didn't even shed a tear, not one.

Who's ready to learn?

Are you STILL here!

The best part of the day: He made it home!!! Who can resist mint chocolate chip cookies?

McKenzie is our sweetest, most precious, selfless little 3 year old. She is always looking out for her brothers, even her older one. Kenzie will share with anyone, but ask first or you'll see her fiesty side. She's such a big help to Mom and Dad. Indepent should be her middle name but we love seeing her determination and watching her get so excited when she figures something out. We love our little angel so much.
