It goes by too fast. My sister has been a basket case all month as her first born leaves for college.

Awwww! I think Isaac has the same backpack as Jon. :)
I know it's tough, but you know you couldn't be leaving him at a better school, or in better hands. :)
Can't wait to see you in the halls! :)

He is so precious. I can't believe he is in first grade. He has such a wonderful base from which to grow. I know in my heart he will always do well. You must be so proud of him. On a more serious note, are you sitting on the toilet holding his hand in that pic? Just curious!

Love ya!
Bonnie

HA! Bonnie, I was going to ask the same question! ;)
So proud of John! Hope he had a great first day back!

Ha! You guys have a very vivid imagination! No toilet involved :)

John is actually walking toward me. We were trying to get him to take his first steps. The little room he was walking out of was a very large closet off of his nursery turned play area. I sure do miss it! Where has the time gone??!! Hope you all had a great Summer. Miss you guys!
