This blog is about our family, who have dealt with the loss of two sons with Muscular Dystrophy, the adoption of a son diagnosed with Agenesis of Corpus Callosum and the birth our a healthy little girl. It's a crazy life, but we are loving it.

1st Day of School

Today was the 1st day of school.

Ethan started the 3rd grade & Emily started Kindergarten. When did this happen? When did my babies grow up?

My kindergartener!
My 3rd grader!
He was so proud of his new backpack. He had to have a one strap backpack this year.
Stinkbug & Ladybug
Happy girl!

There were tears shed. Not by Emily, though. I'll admit it. I cried. Sure I held it together while I was dropping her off, but after I got back to the car...

Then I went home, went into her room & cried. I went to work & every time I thought about them both, I got a little teary eyed. I no longer have a baby. I know this is a great new season for them, and I am happy they came home all excited about school. I know Emily will love kindergarten & I'm real excited because Ethan will get some extra help this year due to his ACC. I think this will make a big difference in school for him, but I can't help being a little reminiscent.     

Ethan & Emily, it has been a complete honor to be your mother for the last 8 & 5 years. Good luck this school year. Both of you will do awesome. I love you!
