My Baby is Grown up!!!

All I really need to know about how to live and what to do and how to be I learned in kindergarten. -Robert Fulghum

Ok, well...not really GROWN up...but he started Kindergarten today...and that is TOO grown up for me!!!! I am so proud of him! He did SOOOO good! He went on the bus and then I met him at the school so he could practice. I got an earful of fun stuff when he got home, so it looks like the first day was a success, now to just keep that attitude for the next 12-20 years! :D

The sun was in his eyes on the front porch...

So we moved to the back porch...much better face :)

I made a card and bookmark for the teacher last night while Connor drew a picture for her (Never too early to become the Teacher's Pet, right? )

Paper: Offbeat (Basic Grey,) Freshly Mown Lawn (October Afternoon,) Bordering Blue, Old Olive
Stamps: Filigree Fantasy and Starlight Starbright (Verve Stamps)
Ink: Bordering Blue, Chocolate Chip
Misc: ribbon, Gem Brad, Button

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Rachel, just look at how big he is!! His smile is sooooo cute. I hope that he has a GREAT year.

  2. Ha! Good luck, once they turn into teenagers watch out...then their days get "boring". ;)

    He's such a cutie pie!! I'm glad he did so well, and I know he'll make lots of friends.
