He got his drink and carefully got himself situated so that he could enjoy his snack . . . and then I watched him quietly eat it and observe the kids around him. I do realize that it won't take more than a day of him actually being IN kindergarten to open up and be his crazy little self, but it was a side of him that I've never seen. My little baby boy is growing up and it's happening too fast! As much as he LOOKS big and grown (he is SO tall - and I'm not joking!) - he's still just a little boy inside. He LOVES to imagine - that boy has a running commentary all the TIME going on - at any given moment he could be a pirate, a race car driver, a dog, an elephant trainer - who knows! Anyways I just wanted to share his special day - which was a big day for us as parents. This is a whole new phase of his life - and I'm not sure I'm ready!! :D (by the way, Ella could not figure out why SHE wasn't the center of attention at the school . . . normally everybody watches HER but she couldn't get people to pay attention today - REALLY bothered her. I wonder who she's like.......??) ;-)
Another reason to celebrate - it's my grandparent's 54th wedding anniversary. Happy Anniversary Grandpa and Grandma Meisel! I love you guys to death and am so thankful that you live so close by. Your marriage and love for each other and the Lord is a constant blessing and example to your children and grandchildren - and now to your great-grandchildren. I hope today is a very special day for you!
