The First Day of First Grade!

A Sweet First Grader!

Seriously...when did he get so tall?


A Goodbye From Brother

An Exciting New Year!
A Great New Teacher

An old friend (they are in the same class!)

A breakfast date for Will and Mommy after drop off...

And my personal favorite? An after school smile!

YEAH! They made it through another first day! I have to tell you, I am SO excited that they are in class together! I feel like it's such a blessing. I really do. See you tomorrow!

Great pictures! Why is time moving so fast? Just 6 years ago we were playing with our babies and getting to know each other. Now look at us!

Short Stop said...

Oh! SO adorable.

Why, why do they have to grow tall and start to look like little boys? Where is that baby chub? Where is that toddlery face? Sigh...just goes by toooooo fast.

LOVE that after school smile!

Alana said...

I think the tallness in the one picture is from the angle. Yes. Surely. That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

Lynn said...

And how is the mommy of that big, tall 1st grader doing after this momentous occasion?

Denise said...

my youngest begins 1st grade... it goes to fast.

Jackie @ Our Moments Our Memories said...

Oh, the after school smile...I'm sure a welcome sight for mama! He's so sweet.

Melissa @ Breath of Life said...

Cute pics. How did you hold up?

P.S. - I recognize your door bucket ;-)

Kara said...

That's so precious. 1st grade is a big leap from kindergarden. It looks like he had a great 1st day though! Awesome.

Rochelle said...

Wonderful memories caught on film. He does look tall!! This time of year always gets me all choked up. It's wonderful and sad to watch them grow up. Keilani starts the 4th grade on Monday and I just can't believe it. Where did k-3 go?????

Alana: This is off-topic, but I wanted to personally invite you to join in for "I See What You're Saying," a video meet and greet, on Sept. 30. Tomorrow I'm posting on how to upload videos, if that helps. Hope you can participate!

Sarah Markley said...

ohhh, ugh. my first grader starts in one week. =(

Linda Z said...

Cute boy you've got there!!

Hey, I just found your comment on my "neighbor" story... don't know how I missed it! Anyway, I hope things are going better with "B." We haven't heard a peep out of our neighbors since the police got involved. You just gotta wonder where all that anger stems from, huh? It's just sad!! What would Anne Shirley do in these situations??

Julie said...

He is so cute and handsome!! I'm glad he had a good first day and that smile at the end of the day had to melt your heart!!!

I loved the one word and pictures for your husband on his birthday. You are so creative!!!

Pennies In My Pocket said...

Awwwwwwwww He looks so excited! What great photos!!

Hey there Alana! I have been missing bloggyville!! I hope you are well!
Anyway, your big boy IS getting so big! My first grader has grown so much. Last year he wore 4T this year he actually can wear 5/6! He's gonna catch up yet!

Glad the first day went well.

Alana,

I remember your first day of kindergarten post from a year ago and WOW your little (big) guy looks SO much older just 365 days later. Glad it was a good day.
