First day of school!!

Yesterday was Samuel's first day of school ever.  He's in a junior kindergarten class (formerly known as alternative kindergarten) which meets in the morning for 5 days a week.  Very exciting!  He's been really looking forward to school and we've loved seeing him grow in independence.  We're praying he'll be a light for Christ among his classmates.  And, no, I did not bawl my eyes out when I dropped him off. Got a little choked up, maybe, but no actual tears.  Caleb, on the other hand, was really distraught about leaving Samuel "alone" at school and thought maybe we should go to his classroom with him. The sadness wore off when he realized he could look forward to 3 hours of not sharing his toys with anyone!! :)

Here are a few pics from the morning...
He's a little giddy about going to school!

All three boys on the playground...Elias was apparently a bit distracted...
