{the simple things} first day of school

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!

Happy Sunday,


  1. I hope your little one enjoys school. I find myself very weepy this time of year watching all the kids going to back to school.

  2. I so remember the anticipation of those days. What a milestone! Congrats to him.

  3. Oh my, the first day is so exciting! I hope he has a great year ;)

  4. Awe, what a milestone! Sounds like maybe it was a little more nerve-racking for mama than him! :) Hope he has a great school year!

  5. Haha ja das mit dem rechtzeitig in die Schule bringen wird fuer mich auch noch schwierig werden. Ich bin ja der langschalaefer der Familie. Ist auch schoen zu sehen dass sich der Schulranzen seit ich in der Schule war kaum veraendert hat.

    Alles Gute fuer das erste Schuljahr :)

  6. 1st grade is a milestone! Awww hope he had a good week:)
