I took his "first day of school" picture in our front yard. I combed his hair and used some hairspray, although I think I will avoid the styling products for a while because he just gets crusty and his hair won't stay in place anyway.
I took this picture right outside his classroom. The teachers asked the parents to say goodbye at the door and then leave as to not prolong any goodbye tears. I don't know if Brandt started crying because as soon as he walked into the room I left. I did take a quick peek through the window and I saw him turn around expecting me to have followed him but I figured I should leave before he saw me. I'm interested to find out how it went.
I'm hopeful that he will enjoy school, and I'm definitely glad he's starting now so he gets used to it before the baby comes in October. A lot of transitions happening in the next few weeks ... I'm hoping he still goes with the flow.
