Flashback...

Both of my kiddos are throughly enjoying their first forays into school. Jacob loves the bus ride and he's excited about school every day. Kyleigh is delighted with the newly filled sandbox she gets to play in!

A while ago my parents scanned in boxes of old slides. As I was looking through one of the albums I came across this one...

Other than photographic proof that I once wore a skirt, this is off to my first day of first grade (at Rosslyn Academy for those who might be interested.) I actually never went to kindergarten. We were traveling--a lot--and then it wasn't offered. The school officials sat me down for a test and determined that even though I was only 5 and no where near the birthday cut-off date, I should be able to handle first grade just fine. Fat lot they knew.

So...fast forward over three decades...my son at the same age, showing a slightly higher level of exuberance!

And, yes...I've added his teacher to my prayer list!
