A Week of Firsts

As a child, I always looked forward to this time of my life. Having a young family is a daily symphony of feelings, more intense than one could ever imagine possible. Joy. Exhaustion. Frustration. Elation. Peace. Chaos. Adoration. Pride.

This week was a big one for our little family. A week of firsts. Trinity started her first day of kindergarten (can it be possible?!). Connor started his first day of pre-school. I went back to work, which meant that Fiona had her first hours of care with someone besides family. With Fiona, there are firsts on an almost daily basis as she gets to know this great world. First giggle. First time rolling over. Oh, and lest I forget, my first day back in pre-pregnancy jeans! Woo-hoo! So many emotions that brought lots of smiles and a good share of tears.

Firsts are good. They can be hard, stressful and even scary, but if nothing else, they are excitng. May this week bring you some special firsts.

WOW! That is a lot of firsts. I hope that Trinity did really well in Kindergarten, I am SURE she did :)
And Connor in pre-school...at least his name will be spelled right :)
Oh sweet Fiona, I want to see her NOW

Pre pregnancy jeans? That is a huge deal, girl. Congrats on that :)

Miss ya'll outta this world

I remember the feelings of the very first day of school. I watched the clock the entire day. In some ways I still do!

I am jealous about the jeans, let me tell you.

Douglas started pre-school last week too and was SO ready. All those years of Sunday School really paid off. While other little kids were melting down and missing their folks, he went straight to playing. I hope Connor had a fantastic time!
