Our Bus Stop

Every morning something happens that causes me mixed emotions...let me explain. The bus stop is right in front of our house which is super convenient. It is so cute to see Brayden get on the bus, he is so excited and independant. He gets on the bus and he sits in his seat and sits there waving at me and blowing me kisses till the bus drives away. I love going out and waving and blowing kisses to my Bray-Man. I'm glad that in his eyes his mom is still "cool" and that he openly shows his love for me. When we exchange this brief expression of love 5 days a week, it brings a smile to my face. The reason I say that I have mixed emotions is because I miss the kids when they are at school, they are all growing up so fast, but I do love every stage that we go thru, even if they are just getting more and more independant! It helps me remember how precious my little ones are and reminds me to enjoy every minute!!!!



Ok, so the funny thing is, I go outside and wave every day and most of the time Brayden isn't the only one waving. It's cute, I get lots of waves and even some kisses blown at me from other kids...It makes me smile and hopefully it helps them smile too.
Ok, isn't Brayden the cutest little 1st grader ever?!?! I love you Brayden, Thanks for loving me so much and showing it!!! I'm grateful that I'm your mom!!

I totally know what you mean! Just a couple of days ago I walked the kids to school and started to give Jacen a hug and he was embarrassed about it. It was the first time I got that response. I guess I can be glad I could up until now--he's in 6th grade. Linnea is in second grade and she already won't let me hug her in public!

Rebecca,
I love your background! How did you change it without making the pictures get all messed up! I tried it and my pictures were messed up and so I just changed it back. Any ideas?

Yes Brayden is the cutest first grader ever!! ;-) Until next year, then mine will be! Just kidding! This post hits home for me as well because I still have a hard time watching Ethan head off to school on the bus. If I think about it hard enough I get all choked up and emotional when the bus pulls away from the corner, knowing that I am trusting one of the most precious things in my life to someone else and trusting that they'll take him where he needs to be, etc. There is something about watching your oldest head off on the bus too I think. Anyway, Brayden you are a handsome guy and I hope you'll always be blowing kisses to your mom until you leave on your mission!!! You are such a sweetheart! ;-)
