Jack's First Day of Kindergarten!

Well, the day finally came - our big shot started school!  He was very excited leading up to it, but that morning he got upset about a few little things while we were getting ready, and I realized he was getting nervous.  We talked about his concerns and he got over it quickly.  We took the obligatory first day of school pictures:

Charlie had to get his backpack for the photo shoot too. ;)
 We headed over to Grandma and Grandpa Clayton's house, where Jack will be getting on and off the bus.

Waiting for the bus: Corbin (Caroline's brother, who will be in Charlie's class), Jack, Mia, Lily, Caroline and Charlie

And he's off!!
I'm happy to report, this time I held the tears back until he boarded the bus.  Julie (Caroline's mom and Grandma and Grandpa Clayton's next door neighbor) and I were groaning about our babies getting taken away on a bus while Jason and her husband Dan were high fiving.  

I took Charlie to school and then worked from home so I could be sure to be waiting at the bus stop for this:

 He's back!!!  Jack had a GREAT first day!  He loved everything about it and couldn't wait to go back!

We celebrated that night with a trip to Orange Leaf for some frozen yogurt.
