My baby is on his way to school.
I'm a little emotional about it all but it's good for him. The bus was the hardest thing to do. Fortunately there was another little girl at the bus stop that was going into kindergarten as well so they were able to sit together and that made me and her mom feel so much better! It's just hard to watch him walk away not needing me anymore. Now I'll just be waiting until 3:15 to pick him up. He does this thing where he rubs his eyes because he says "his eyes are trying to cry".. but he wants to be brave and not cry in front of people. He did that last night when we were talking about school and he said he was going to miss me. Then he did it again this morning while we were waiting for the bus. We wants to much to be big and tough but I can see my baby still in there and I can only hug and love him more and then send him off. Jon gave him a wonderful fathers blessing this morning and it was such a nice experience just to watch my husband being able to bless his son with the power of the priesthood. I was and am so proud of both of them and lucky that my husband is able to do that for our children. They are lucky. I remember my dad giving us fathers blessings before school and that is priceless to me.
