Well, today finally and actually happened. My baby is growing up. Caitlyn did great today. She was a bit nervous, but who isn't on a first day of school. She did not cry, me on the other hand did tear up a bit, two times. When I grew up, my mom and I would always pray before I left the house. We would pray that I would be protected during the day, that I would be like Jesus and to have a great day. I love that tradition that we had and so I started it today with Caitlyn. That is when I first teared up and I also teared when we were walking down the halls at school and I mentioned that the teachers in the hallway were there to help her if she were to ever get lost and not be able to find her classroom. I dont know why I teared up on the second one. Maybe it was because being lost and not finding her classroom has been something that has concerned Caitlyn for a while and so maybe it was cause the teachers would be the ones to help her and not me.
Here are 3 of the 100's of pictures that I REALLY wanted to take, but Caitlyn was done taking pictures once we got to her classroom. So here are the "before" pictures and I am going to take more, the "after" pictures when I pick her up from school.In her classroom. Once we walked in was when her nervousness set in a bit. But she did great.
This picture was actually the first one I took... how it got to be last in this post, I have no clue.
