First Day

Today I had to keep whispering to myself that being brave doesn't mean your not afraid. It means your afraid and you do it anyways. I tell this often to my middle son Wesley during all the shots, surgeries, and doctor appointments he endures. Today I am telling it to myself. Because letting him go of to school alone without me is a little terrifying for me. Today I started a whole new journey of sending not one, but two of my children off to school. While I am excited about this new stage in our lives. I must admit I am a little afraid and even sad. The journey of letting go is filled me with a lot more emotion than I was anticipating. This day came rushing in faster than I was expecting. My children just aren't suppose to be growing up this fast. I am however after this morning filled with a level of comfort from the bond that is being formed between my two older children. While they may fuss, fight, and claim to dislike one another(this even happen this afternoon, even after all the sweetness this morning). The truth is I am confident they will look after each other. Carter showed a beautiful maturity today in helping prepare his younger brother for the school years ahead them both. I am proud of them both!!! Now if Mommy could take this new stage as well as the boys are we would be golden =)....Hey what can I say my babies are growing up, and it's bitter sweet, and I am aloud to cry right???

They are important to me, and to each other even if they don't fully grasp just how important yet.

Wesley's First Day of Kindergarten 2010 ready to go and full of a beaming imagination.

"I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. That myth is more potent than history. That dreams are more powerful than facts. That hope always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death."
— Robert Fulghum (All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten)

Bonds are being formed today. It brings me to tears.
