H's first day of school

My little girl is all grown up! I can’t believe it, where did the time go? She was just a little newborn in my arms?!  H will be starting preschool in a couple of weeks!
It’s a big step for her, learning to be independent and not having Mommy around all the time. I’m preparing myself for some tearful goodbyes. I’m not sure who is more anxious mommy or H? I know she’ll love it once she makes friends and probably won’t want to leave.

I’m also wondering how N will react. I wouldn’t be surprised if he wanted to stay at school when I drop H off. But I’m sure he’ll enjoy the “Mommy and me time”. It definitely will be nice to have more quality time with him.

So with the big day we need some milestone pictures. I found a cute idea on Pinterest about taking a picture on the first and last day of school to see how they’ve grown over the school year.  Check out our BOJ's "Cute Photos" Pinterest board for the pin. A good friend of mine has religiously taken her son’s “first day of school” pictures and he’s a sophomore in high school now. How sweet is that?

Did your parents ever take pictures of you on your first day of school?
Do you have any memorable first day of school stories to share?

Wishing you a great school year!


  1. Wow, Eva, that was quick! I still have the video of Lily crying her eyes out after her big sister Stephanie got on the kindergarten bus! Bittersweet for sure!

  2. Happy 1st day of school for H! You're right, the time has FLOWN by! I'm sure both you and her will be sad the 1st day (I know I'd be ballin!) but over time, it'll get better. It's wonderful you'll be able to spend quality time with N. I guess only having J in our family so far, I can't really understand how you need one-on-one time with 2nd children, just like Zi wrote about last week. Can't wait to see pics of H's 1st day! And taking photos for 18 years? Now THAT's dedication!

    1. We are planning on sharing the kids' first day of school pics, so stay tuned!

  3. Awwww! The time does fly! Document EVERYTHING! And... good luck to you! (you know... with the tears and all!) And yes! I plan on taking Brett's picture on the bus steps AGAIN!!!!
