The Last First Day

This morning as Emma and Finn started off on their first walk to school of the year, I found myself feeling just a little sentimental. I suddenly flashed back to walking Emma to Irving on her first day of Kindergarten nine years ago. Her backpack enveloped her tiny body as she proudly marched through the "big school" doors. All the while her infant brother snoozed in the stroller. I never considered how fleeting this stage of our life would seem, but Emma joined her fellow 8th graders at the middle school this morning and Finn took his position in line at the 5th grade doors on our family's last first day at Irving School. I guess there will be a lot of lasts this year, but I know all good things must come to an end and I plan to savor every last moment!

Still backpacks, huh? Too bad, everything in there would fit nicely on an iPad. (Except the home made foodie lunches.)
