"Mom, is 'Fire burnin' fire burnin' on the dance floor a DJ song?"
"I'm pretty sure it is, why?"
"Then I want to wear my DJ shirt to school today."

And then Trey sees the backpack and starts bawling.

"No kee cool, no kee cool!" (No CJ school) Trey cried the entire way there, then on the way home without his "kee" in the car and didn't stop until I laid him down for a nap. It was traumatic for all of us.
As exhibited by this picture of CJ at his table when I was leaving (he didn't see me taking this picture through the glass door). Me, with huge sunglasses on, bawled to. I have a hard time with milestones and even little things (like when you cover them up with their favorite blanket and suddenly their feet stick out because they are too big for it now). Cheesy, I know, but it's just me. It hits you at times like this how fast they grow up and it's hard!! CJ's been in preschool for over two years so it's not the fact that he's going to school now, it's just that we're only a year away from him being gone all day and I miss him when he's not at home.

After school I got there early and he was frantically looking for me the second he stepped out of the classroom and as soon as he saw me he looked so relieved that I was there, ran over, hugged me and asked if he got to go again tomorrow because he "LOVED IT!"

You've already started school in your part of the country? Crazy stuff! Is he in afternoon kindergarten or is Trey enjoying an Otter Pop for breakfast!

OK, I started crying when I saw that pic of CJ! Where has the time gone? I am just like you--I cry at the funniest little milestones, too. At least we are aware of how incredibly fast it all goes---helps us enjoy it all more. Jacob will be in school all day this year and I am in a funk about it! :)

Oh my gosh, that sad face picture is so sad. What a sweet boy. (He's still one of my favorite kids of all time).
Congrats on the new school's tough, but good of course. Will you stay in Boise I guess?
