First Day of Preschool!

And just like that, Tate's in school.

I wanted to cry, but I didn't. Sean was with me which is probably why I didn't...he might have thought I was nuts. However, I did tell him that I felt like I wanted to cry. Had I been alone, it might have been Niagra Falls. I mean, I am just so proud of Tate and cannot believe he's growing so fast! It's kind of bitter sweet. I'll miss him each day for the 2 1/2 hours he's gone, but I know I'll grow to really enjoy that time to get things done!

He willingly let me hold a "1st day of school photo shoot" with him today. :) Well, willingly for about 45 seconds. That's all I needed. Ha.

And we had to get pictures with Mommy and Daddy too!

Oh how I adore him...he makes my heart feel like it might explode!

And each day I will pick up Ava from daycare (which is right by the preschool) and take she and Tate to preschool together. Today, she was chomping at the bit to get to school. These two were SO SO SO excited!

And this picture is absolutely my all time favorite picture of these two. Oh my goodness...what happened?!! They were JUST babies!

I took this quick video of the kids while we were waiting in our car line to drop them off.

And then they walked in just like they'd always been doing it. No nerves or fear, just sheer excitement!

After preschool, we picked them up and decided to celebrate their special day with a trip to Sonic. They were total chatter boxes the whole way there telling us all about their day! It was so adorable!

And then there was silence...

I am so proud of BOTH Tate and Ava and love them both so much. Watching their friendship grow as they grow up together is so special and I am so glad they have each other!
