First Day!

Today, Carter had his first day of his second year of school :)

We were all so, so ready.

Especially Carter.

Unlike last year, not a single tear was shed this morning.

{Well, except when I realized that I had locked my keys in the car, and Jake was already 15 minutes away.  He turned around.  Everything was okay.}

Don't get me wrong - I'm not complaining about my summer with this happy little boy.  Everything about our summer together was perfect - lots of lunches on the porch, swimming in the kiddie pool, park visits - it was all so very fun.

It was just time.  Time for our old routine.  Time for some more consistency.  Time, time, time.

We've been telling Carter that he's going to go back to school, and he's going to see his friends and teachers.  This morning, we said 'Carter - today you're going to school!' - he let out a big 'Yayyyyy!!!', and was a happy camper all morning.

As we got out of the car (not even late after the key-in-car incident!), he ran right up to his little school like such a big five year old.

And then maybe - just maybe - I was a little misty-eyed.  Look at him.  Such a big, proud, confident, able little boy.

So, Carter Benjamin, here's to 'Year Two'.  May you learn - grown - achieve - and excel.  May you surprise us in every single way.

And next year, when it's time for the 'Big K' - may we sit back and say "Oh my.  He can so do this.".

One Thing I Know For Sure:  So able.  So sure.  So capable.  So ready.


  1. YAY!!! Glad it went so well! I guess my little guy did well too - or so the note says. :-) No tears in the suburban either. Yay!

    So, Sarah just tells me a minute ago that I need to blog about J's first day of school since yours is already up. Ya, well...I never even posted Elijah's pictures from LAST year. Oh well...off for the sleep study initial visit in a bit. Thanks for posting!

  2. I spent an insane amount of time reading your blog last night. Love your writing style and LOVE your story. God's ways are so amazing! All glory to Him.
