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.

Playing around at the bus stop.

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?

Awwww. I love this post. I was just thinking today that time flies too fast, and it won't be long before Addie is starting school. (And Livy too for that matter) I have three favorite pictures on this post:

1- Kenzie's sad face. Too sweet.
2- All the kids lined up to get on the bus.
3- The "Are you still here!?" look.

What great pictures Brit!! He looks so grown up! I can't believe they are in Kindergarten already! I hope he is loving school as much as Noah is!

I am so excited for you! Kindergarten is incredible because they grow up so fast! You will be in constant amazement with how much they learn, grow, and change!

Yumm... Chocolate mint cookes, that sounds good! I still can't imagine when Dallin goes to kindergarten which is next year, it seems like time is going way to fast! I can't believe he is in Kindergarten when I first meet you he was like 2 or younger CRAZY!!!
