Carter's First Day of Kindergarten

Today was Carter's official first day of Kindergarten!!  I kept telling myself I wouldn't cry...but alas I am crying as I write this post.  If you would have asked me 2 years ago - maybe even a year ago - if I would cry when he went off to school I would have said I will probably do a happy dance.  BUT no, I am truly sad that my oldest, my little buddy, my Carter Boy has gone off into the world of school.  From this day on except for Summer breaks he will be gone for the majority of the day whether in school or working.  My short full time season with him is gone.  That makes me so sad!!  BUT at the same time: he is ready, he is as prepared as I could hope for him to be, he is a good kid, and most of all he needs to grow.  So my Carter Boy flee my nest and have great adventures a long the way just remember who you are, that your Mom and Dad love you, to be kind to others, and to Love our Savior Jesus Christ with all your heart, might, mind and soul!!

One of Carter's best buddies and our neighbor James. They ride the bus together and look out for each other.  It brings so much peace to me as I see James put his arm around Carter and guide him onto the bus - I hope both of these boys guide each other for good through out their time together!

 GOSH DANG IT!!  I still am having problems getting my pictures to rotate!!!  But here is my precious son with me his honored Mother.  I LOVE YOU!! I MISS YOU!!  I will be praying for both of us!!!
