My First Grader

holy moly!

i can’t believe i am the mother of a First Grader!!!!

i woke up this morning with a fully charged camera battery and a completely empty memory card in there … with my heart set on capturing his first day of First Grade in this super-artistic fashion that would leave you all speechless!


this kid is about as happy with me following him around with a camera as i am at Chuck E Cheese’s or Wal-Mart on payday

so i literally took about 10 photos before he was rolling his eyes and nearing an episode of  “mom! go away!!!”

what next?!?! is he gonna tell me to stop calling him Laken Bacon?!

really!!! he didn’t want to hold my hand at the school. he even said that i didn’t have to take pics this year because i “did last time!”

and that should be enough? right???


here is my attempt at documenting his first day of school

(one day he will  hate me for taking and posting photos of him like this…)

Laurie Etheredge - WOW!! I didn’t know y’all lived in the GH cluster—we used to live over there. He looks so big and grown up! Billy went to kinder and Jake is at Greenways. Max is in 4th at City View. It is 1:40pm and I only quit crying my eyes out about 30 minutes ago. I am just a mess! Hugs to you and kudos on the photos.
