Big day! BIG DAY!!

I take every first day of school off for Anderson because it is the start of his new adventure!

And, of course, this mama cried...a little.

Well, who can blame me. This was the first time after he gave me hugs and kisses and we took pictures that he turned around and said 'Bye, Mama!" and just walked into the school.

All by himself.

He didn't need me to walk in with him anymore because he's a big boy now.

He saw a friend and said hi to him and they walked in together.

Without me.

Yeah, a few tears were shed. Have a wonderful year, sweetheart. Mama will be waiting at 2:50 to take you home.
