Weekly Photo Challenge: Nostalgic

My oldest son will start his senior year of high school this fall, and is fine-tuning his list of colleges to which he intends to apply.  I cannot help but feel a little nostalgic as I look back at this first day of school photo from when my eldest started his kindergarten year.  His little brother wanted to take a photo, too, and thought it was all fun until big brother climbed onto the school bus.  Little brother was so upset he was not going with him that he grabbed a handful of rocks off the gravel driveway and threw them at the bus as it departed!

First Day of School

 

Along with that feeling of nostalgia, though, is the excitement of looking forward to the next stage of life, for both my children and myself.  Each stage may close some doors, but also brings new opportunities.  What is life without change?  Embrace it and enjoy the journey.

  2. It is hard being a little brother 🙂
    They seem to grow in the blink of an eye don’t they? Can’t believe my grandchildren are now past this stage!!!

  3. Throwing rocks at the bus! That’s hilarious! My girls are ten and twelve, and I still feel like they should be in 1st and 2nd grade, so I don’t even want to think about college. Oy.
