Days of Firsts

So many firsts in the last few days. My oldest had his first soccer practice on Saturday. He is so excited about playing soccer like his uncle and aunt do. Here he is with the coach getting tips, I presume.

He came home flushed from running and so eager to tell me about it. When I asked, he said he learned to not use his hand, but to use his feet. He said, "did you know that, Mommy?".

Today was his first day of school. He is starting preschool and will be going 3 days a week. I was nervous about him going--mostly about him having problems being away from me but he did just fine. The teachers sat him right down and gave him a project to do. He was writing straight lines and coloring in a page. He didn't even notice when his baby brother and I left. I think he will do just fine in school.

awww...that's awesome! It's so cool to watch 'em grow. I cried when my mom left me at kindergarten on the first day and I cried when she came to pick me up b/c I was having too much fun to go home! :)

Oh, those first days are so hard, yet special! My son just had his first day of middle school yesterday. It wasn't as bad as most since it's the same school he's been going to, just it's own section... But still, it seems so grown-up-like!
