This week's simple thing actually isn't all that simple. It's my older son, walking to his new class with his new classmates and new teacher, complete with the new backpack. All by himself.
It was a really nice day, sunny weather, a great church service and a pretty funny show the older kids in school put on for the first grader. He was so proud, carrying his new backpack and the Schultuete. They only had one hour of school the first day, but with all the excitement of the day, that was plenty.
I still can't quite get over the fact that I have a schoolkid now... Especially when the alarm goes off in the morning and I have to make sure he gets to school by 7:45!
