Baby, You're a Firework!

I was being brave.  I really was.  Until I tucked Scarlett in last night.  

Then the floodgates let loose as I expressed my love for my little shining star.

And then, being the compassionate person that she is, she started balling too!

She said, "I don't want to go to school...I want to stay here with you.  We'll never have Mommy Preschool ever again!!"  And then I felt like a jerk for causing her sadness on the eve of such great excitement!

This morning, however, she was nothing but smiles, and I'm happy for her...

Girlfriend is ready to go...

and so are Guy and Autumn (although Autumn doesn't go to preschool for two more weeks.)

But first they had to wake up the whole neighborhood and make sure our friends had someone to walk with to the bus stop!

Kindergarten won't know what hit it!

Guy gave his friend a "pep talk."

Scarlett sought some advice from her friend.

Our superhero dad made it to the party at the bus stop...

A kiss for luck...

And they're off!

I'm going to miss my spunky, capable little companion!


  1. She is special, Jocelyn. But I don't have to tell you that...


  2. I love how you documented such a special day! It is always so hard to send our little ones out to spend most of their day without us. :(

  3. I am not excited for when my kids go to school! I'm going to lose it.

  4. Now I'm crying too! I hope you both had a good first day.
