Before having Luke I taught school for about 6 months, and on the first day of school I stood with the other teachers watching the Kindergartener's come in and we said, "look how cute and little they are." And they were...little bodies with backpacks twice the size of their backs, super little compared with the big kids.
This year I sent Luke to Kindergarten and said, "Holy Cow!! Look how huge he is!! Big enough to be a Kindergartner." He's such a big boy now and loves taking the bus.
As is typical I was freaked out he would get off the wrong bus stop and be standing on the side of the road some where wondering where I was. I told him many, many times, "do not get off the bus unless you see mom." When the bus pulled up he was standing in his row scanning the road to find me. He did.
It 's been a few weeks. His transition to "school-boy" has been flawless. I still love watching him run across the road to the bus with hair and backpack bouncing.
