First Day of School

Today was Matthew's first day of Kindergarten and he was so excited.  He kept reminding me to wake him up on time so that he wouldn't be late.  

James wanted to get in on the picture taking action.  

Matthew in front of his classroom.  It was super sunny and really hot.  When we got to school, it was about 10 minutes before the bell, and so all the kindergartners were playing on the playground.  Not Matthew, he was ready for class to start and didn't want to waste any time.  He kept saying, "When is school going to start?"  Waiting around was not what he had in mind.

Matthew found his name on a table and got really excited.  But I also think he couldn't wait for me to get out of there.  So I took a quick picture and said good-bye.  

When James and I got back to the car he asked, "Where'd brother go (he never says Matthew)?"  I told him that Matthew was at school.  James lost it.  I've never heard a cry so sad.  He cried and kept saying, "Brother!"  So cute.  He got over it pretty fast once we were home and he got a  snack.  
I can't believe how fast time goes.  I feel like it was a week ago that I brought my first baby home.  And now I'm dropping him off at school.  He's gotten so big and is so smart, I can't wait to see what this new adventure will bring him!

Kindergarten starting already???? Isn't it like 110 degrees down there?? We start in two weeks and I am dreading it. How can the summer be over already?
