Gage's First Day of School....EVER.

Oh my goodness---Gage had his first day of school today...and he did AWESOME!

...Daddy & I took Gage to school this morning, and then parted ways...

But, let me backup....Getting ready in the morning...

...brushing his teeth with Daddy...


...choosing which cologne he wants to wear...

{why yes, his eyes are closed, so perhaps that's how he chose...no, in reality, he chose BOTH, and got a tiny squirt of each...}

...playing around while (& after) Mommy did his hair...





...posing by the car...


...at the school...

{indicating with his one finger that it is his first day of school...}

Just look at this little apple with his name. His little hook for his backpack. Oh, it was so sweet to find his hook & hang up his little stuff....


Can I just say how proud I am?
This child only looked back once, and that's when I was lagging behind...you know, taking pictures...

When it was time to enter the classroom---he was all over it. This child went directly to the Lego Center to Lego Station. He was curious about the small tables & chairs, and where he would sit. Separation anxiety? What separation anxiety? I had to ASK for a hug & a kiss. ASK.

I couldn't have been more proud.
Hubby & I "high-fived" on our way out. "Our kid is so awesome!"
My heart went out to the other families experiencing tears, and clinging, and fits.
...but us? Our kid did AWESOME!

Love the photo where it looks like he's leaning on the car. You are totally going to have your hands full in a few years.

How awesome! Gage looked so happy! You guys did a great job...congrats on the easy transition!

Now don't forget to take a 1st day of school picture every year! It's a great idea I read on Suburban Scrawl! She's brilliant!

That's so great! We had open house last night for preschool, but Little Elvis' first day isn't until next Wednesday. He bawled when we left, so I'm guessing that's a good sign.

And, I noticed you're rocking a METHODIST preschool (noted the cross and flame in the picture, ha)...my dad's a Methodist minister. :-)

Zakary had a great day too and when I told him he was going back tomorrow, he was cheering. If you are picking Gage up tomorrow, look for me.
