the first day of school

I love this type of photograph that shows the passage of time. The first day of school from Pre-K through 4th grade. That last one taken just this week. Every year I feel another part of my heart breaking away as he heads off on the start of another chapter. Becoming more and more independent. Ready and excited and happy. Capable and confident. And loved. So very loved.

  1. Girlfriend, you know this is fantabulous. I look forward to this time of the year to see how your young man grows! What strikes me is how positively happy and confident he looks on the first day of school every year for the past six years. And I’ve no doubt that trend will continue because I know the love and guidance he receives from his attentive, kind parents is his firm foundation. This is a collection he will surely treasure one day.
