First day of school

Okay, so it wasn't exactly like that!  The kids were thrilled for today and they all got the teachers we requested so we were stoked!  I wasn't quite sure how it would be dropping off S at school for kindergarten.  After all, this was my seventh time doing it.  Every other time I smiled excited for them knowing how excited they were to finally be old enough to go to school.  This time though was different.  As S walked away to her classroom, I had to fight the tears welling up in my eyes.  I was closing a chapter in my life that is all I have ever known for almost twenty one years.  I would no longer have children at home.  I walked away sad but eagerly looked forward to taking funny photos I had planned on doing and then I was happy.  It was a good day.
