Well.  It happened.  Dex has started Kindergarten.  I can't believe how fast this 5 years has gone.  I remember thinking "by the time he starts school, I'll have done..." or "by the time he starts school, we will be..." A benchmark that seemed so far away and now here it is!  Just like that. 

It literally felt like it just snuck up on me.  I wasn't really sure how to prepare for it.  Outside of buying his school supplies and making sure he went to school with a snack the first day.  I was in a constant state of feeling like I should be doing something, but at the same time feeling like there was nothing to do!  Ha!  

So, now he's completed his second day, and really... it's not much different than the last several years of our life, except that now he gets to say he's in Kindergarten instead of at Mrs. K's school :)  Oh, and I have to wait in a pick-up line now!  Those are fun.

I know he will be doing more and learning more and napping less, so I understand it will be bigger changes for him than it appears that it will be for me.  My prayer is that he will embrace it and thrive this year.  He's a social little guy, so I don't anticipate it being terribly difficult for him.  

The first day of school, I picked him up, probably more excited than he was, and asked "What did you do today??!!"  And he looked at me and said "I don't remember!"  Just like a teenager already!  Nice :)  He seems to like it though and I really like his school, so I feel like we're going to have a great year!! Here's to new changes for the better!

And big changes for Annabel, as well.  She's graduated to Mrs. K's school since turning 2.  So, she's on a new schedule and growing up and learning.  She can count to 15, say her ABC's, and recite the entire Frozen movie.  Look at my babies getting big!!  


  1. My favorite line: "…and she can recite the entire Frozen movie!" haha :) And YAY for Dex! Happy new routines to all of you!

  2. How is it possible that Dex is already in Kindergarten?!? Cute kiddos!

  3. This is such an exciting time for them...and scary for mom and dad! I can't believe Emi's big boy is in kindergarten! And Emi's girl is in preschool! So crazy how fast it got here! I love you all!!

  4. It's hard to believe how they've grown--and Dex is such a big boy! Good luck to all of you!

  5. I really loved visiting with your, "Babies" last weekend! They are both so adorable and sweet! I know that Dex is going to ace kindergarten! This should be a great and fun years for you all!
