Now what?

So now that Sage is in school all day, Alex and I have been spending lots of time together. He really misses her and asks if we can pick her up, many times throughout the day. But when he's not thinking about sissy, he likes to have lots of fun with Mama!

Here he is, licking the spatula...his favorite part of making brownies!

I love his smile! and his silliness!

I love my little boy :)

First Day of Kindergarten!!

August 6, 2007

Sage was excited for her first day of school (and a little nervous too). This first picture was taken in front of our those purple flowers!

We walk to school every morning. Sage gets tired a lot (she's telling me what to write! haha) when she does that."
This picture was taken right after she sat down at her desk for the first time. She was so cute. It was really hard to leave her there. In fact, we stood outside the classroom window for a while (along with many other kindergarten parents) and were finally 'kicked out' of there. The school uses the colors of a stop light to judge how well the kids are doing (behaviorally).... Sage is so pleased to come home with a 'green light'! So far she's brought home a green light everyday!! We're so proud of her!

Sending our first child to school has been an adjustment. I never thought it would be so hard to send her away to school. But actually, come to think of it, it is a rather big step, considering when I went to kindergarten it was only 1/2 day and now the little 5 year olds go full day!
