First Day of Kindergarten






Today was Owen's first day of school. After a great nights sleep, Daddy made a hero's breakfast. Eggs, bacon, pancakes, toast and orange juice. We got dressed in some new clothes, got our pictures taken in the "usual" spot, loaded up the cars (Jake's parents came with us) and the entourage followed Owen into Wheatland Elementary with flashes going off. After we got into the classroom and found his hook and chair, he put his name tag on, kissed his fans "good bye" and was ready to start the day. Allie and Daddy were lagging behind in the kitchen play area and Owen had to inform Daddy, "Daddy, it's TIME FOR YOU TO GO!" I guess he had no fears of his first day of school, just embarrassment from his parents. Did I mention I was wearing spandex!!??

Wow, I can't believe they are ready for this!You are such a good mom and you are one of the few people I know that are allowed to wear spandex in public because you look great!

Making that "first day" impression is soooooo important! I believe that Owen didn't need any support from his parents once he arrived and took stock of his school....he may well be on his way to being his own man.....and he has his parents to thank...although he probably won't be acknowledging that for a while!

Were you ready to "cut and run" if the situation called for it? Is it typical style or have you yourself come into your own person and comfortable in your own skin? Not being a "fashion mavin" by any "stretch"...I think that a second skin is the "frosting" on the cake....not an environmental habit worn for suitability for said occasion....but if it fits....wear it....'cause you were it well.....If ya got it....flaunt it!!!! lol.....that's my girl!

I'm not sure which I love more: the spandex or the fact that Owen had to tell his daddy to leave on his first day of kindergarten!:)

I love the smile on Owen's face! And if I looks liked like you from the backside, I'd wear spandex too!
