Wordless Wednesday – Firsts with LINKY #ww #wordlesswednesday

There are so many firsts these days.

They are growing and changing. At the speed of light.

Many days I want it all to stop. My heart wants them to stay little forever.

My head knows that they will continue to grow. To change. To become the amazing human beings they are destined to become.

I have to make myself remember how important all of these firsts are for me and them. After all, I am the chief memory keeper of my household and I take that responsibility seriously.

Yesterday they started school. Third grade, first grade and pre-K. They ran in their classrooms without a hug or a kiss or even saying goodbye.

I only cried a little.

    I hope you do this every year! Wish I had thought of it!

  23. Crystal @ Counselor Mom

    My Wordless Wednesday post is about my dog adding to the stress. He makes just as much of a mess like a child does!

  24. I LOVE the idea of having them hold the signs! I just might have to do that this year. Here I always have them stand by the front door so I can see how much they grew from year to year.

  25. Aww!

    I love the curved edges of your photos too!

  26. Firsts are so much fun, and sometimes very tough. My son had his first day of 7th grade, and that was sooo hard. My baby is growing up.

  27. Too cute! I love the shoes on the wrong feet! 🙂

  28. Those are just SUPER cute!!!! I may have to use that idea. The polka dots were AWESOME!
    Happy WW!

  31. aww, they grow up to darn fast! this is a cute idea, I never thought to take a pic of their first day of school, but my dil did last year of my grandsons, I bet she does this year too. (gotta love the shoes on the wrong feet)
