we had such a great morning. the kids were all so very excited. i had woken early to journal and process all the feels on this monumental day for our family. and then when ian put his little lunch box up on the shelf, a flood of emotions hit me hard. i tried to hold it together but i just couldn't. i was the classic kindergarten momma, his teacher came and hugged me and told me she would take care of him. so sweet.
