Oh my...how did 3rd and 5th grade sneak up on me so quickly? The fact that this is my older son's last year in elementary school is crazy to me. I know it's cliche, but really...it does seem like kindergarten registration was just yesterday.
My new reality is that getting that classic "First Day of School" shot isn't what it used to be. There's no more picking out a new outfit for them, or posing them on the front porch steps for the yearly photo. I'm lucky I got at least one shot before I was given the "Mom! I'm fine, you can leave now" look.
Back to School is always bittersweet for me. The Summer months are full of fun adventures, but selfishly, I'm also very happy that I have my alone time back.
Did your kids start school this week too? If so, hope they had a fantastic first day!
