He’s been x-ing the days off of his calendar with mounting excitement. And finally, FINALLY, we reached that big red circle.
It’s SCHOOL TIME!
A quick pep-talk to a little sister who was pretty darn sure she should be going on that school bus, too…
♥ Goodbye sister kisses. ♥
Goodbye Mom squeezes!
(and kisses and pats and hugs and rubs and tickles and one really good butt-pinch)
At long last…here it comes!
Pure Boy Joy.
And off he went.
I was a little disappointed to see that the bus windows were heavily tinted… I wasn’t able to see him once he rounded that corner.
But – just as the bus began to pull away, and the weight of the moment settled into my butterfly-filled stomach, I saw that precious little head pop up in one of the back windows. I will never ever forget the excitement and wonder on Parker’s face in that moment. He waved frantically, caught the kiss that I blew his way with all of my heart, and was gone.
I am so proud of you, Parker. I love my school boy.
