I guess the official kick off to fall is the start of school. Here are pictures from Jack's first day of 1st grade:
If you look closely at this next picture, you can see that my poor little man got sad when he got on the bus. It was so unexpected and I felt so sad for him! It only lasted a few minutes, and then he was fine.
Jack's birthday was the second day of school, so I took him McDonald's for lunch at school. We also brought cupcakes to soccer practice that night for all his buddies.
