Back to School {Drew's 1st Day of 1st Grade}

It's back to school time around our parts!!!

Last year, I was a complete wreck. I was beyond a wreck I think if you ask those around me. I was sending Drew off to Kindergarten. Not only that but my boy had only been to a 1/2 day Pre-School and no day cares before that. And on top of that, I was sending my kids to a totally new school district out of my comfort zone that I knew nothing about. Talk about stressed.

This year?!?! Easy peasy.

I think he was more nervous than I was actually. I was sitting on the side of his bed before bed the night before and in all seriousness he says:
"Mom, I am really excited about school, but I am also really nervous." 
This was his first year without his best friend, Parker. These two are inseparable. So it was going to be a big adjustment for him. 

I explained that they could find each other on the playground at recess. This sort of calmed his nerves, but he was still quite nervous when he woke up.

But never fear! Mommy is here to take loads of pictures! :)
 In the middle of picture taking I get this look...

So without further ado, here is the bombardment of pictures, once again.

And my personal favorite..

Gosh, he just has seriously gotten so big within the last year. I am just amazed at the little boy he has become and how much confidence I have in him to do well in school and do what is right.
I think that really did help calm my nerves about sending him off to 1st grade.
He is an amazing little kid.

I didn't even shed one tear this year. Instead, I was just super proud of him.

Look at how much he changed within a year.

He had a GREAT 1st day. He told me the story how he found Parker on the playground and to me it sounds like they ran into each other's arms! Ha.

Next week Dylan starts his second year of pre-school. At orientation he walked in like big man on campus that ruled the school.
Pray for his teacher.
