The bottom line is the boy is excited. He can't wait to have real gym and learn more math (his favorite subject). I know he will do awesome this year but, there is something tremendously bittersweet to think that this is the start of school forever, college and then a life of his own (dramatic much). This little man became my full time job (literally and figuratively) while I was still pregnant and put on bed rest. I know in a few weeks when the routine finds it self I will be thankful for the special time Lena and I will have. The excitement in picking him up each day and listening to his stories but, humor me while I boo-hoo a bit tomorrow. I think this must be some sort of mommy rite of passage as all of my mommy friends have the same FB posts and newborn/now pictures scattered all over. I was listening to daddy pray with Jack before bed about his new class, friends, teacher and I was reminded my boy is in good hands. I know the only one who loves him more than we do has gone before him and put everything in place for him. He is on loan to us and I am so thankful. These last five years of Jack and I have been the best and I am so blessed to think I have had so much time with him. These years I will cherish forever. I can not wait for us to figure out our new normal as he starts his school career.

Kindergarten pictures of our boy.
This one is technically so off but, this picture is everything that
is my boy. So it is absolutely perfect in my eyes.
