Back to School!

So this year is significant... my oldest is entering middle school and my youngest kindergarten! What's the difference between entering middle school vs kindergarten?  Here are a few of my observations...

Night before...

my kindergartener... 
excited, bouncy, little nervous... 
hugs n kisses to bed... 
wanted to know if he could bring his pokemon cards to school...
would he get lost and ride the wrong bus?

my middle schooler...
excited, bouncy, little nervous... 
hugs n kisses to bed...
wanted to know if all her "stuff" will fit in her locker...
would she get lost and be late for class?

At the bus stop...

my kindergartener...
excited, bouncy...
goofing around with his older brother...
giggling... all smiles...

my middle schooler...
excited, nervous...
casual conversations with other kids at stop...
reserved... thoughtful... hint of a smile...

Back from first day...

my kindergartner...
beaming, feeling excited and bouncy...
rattling off various aspects of his day...

my middleschooler...
beaming, feeling relieved and confident...
organizing her binders for the next day...

really not too different...
but o how time flies...
not too long ago my middleschooler was the kindergartner...
scary to think that soon she'll be off...

so trying to treasure these times...
to not get caught up in the busy...
not get hyper focused on the details...
but creating intentional moments 
to laugh, hug, kisss...
intentional efforts
to cherish, cultivate, love...
