First Day of School

This morning I had a moment that I only imagine is like when a mom's first child gets on the bus to go to kindergarten for the first time. Except, I was a wife watching her husband set off for his first day of law school. I kissed KC on the cheek and sent him packing out the door. I had all the faith in the world that he would do amazing, that he would make friends, and that he wouldn't get lost. But at the same time I was missing him being at home and wishing that kids just didn't need to grow up so fast. It is amazing what law school and being married has done to us. We have both grown into little adults. KC is going to do just great. Way to go, babe, on your first day of school. I love you so much.


  1. sweet! That is what I love most about you Gen-you have always believed in KC and supported him. You are a great wife to him! He is one lucky man! I love this pic. of him and his stack of books-makes me feel all sorts of anxiety just looking at those books!! Tell him good luck and we are proud of him too!

  2. YAY! Congrats to KC! I know he will do great. Best of luck to him!

  3. How cute!! Tell KC good luck, even though I'm sure he doesn't need it.

    I'll have you know I get emotional every time I read your blogs- it's great to know everything that is going on and to see pics, thanks for being so loyal to us!

    Love you guys!!!!!!

  4. Oh little KC, off to school. I hope he got a new Homer Simpson notebook and pencil pack. Those are important items to start the school year off right. Tell him to be nice to his teachers and to be friendly to play well with others!!

    I can totally relate to the "when did we become
    adults?" feeling. I have it quite frequently. It'll come when you buy a house, or have a kid, or go on vacation by yourself, or pay bills, or fix your sprinklers, or just about any time you do something your Mom should be doing for you. Pretty much, if becoming an "adult" had some sort of requirements...none of us would ever pass. And so, life just happens, and most of us feel inadequate 90% of the time.

  5. that's quite the stack of books!!! Good luck to you two as the law school journey starts!

  6. We love it! KC is a natural at being a first day of school law school student. Way to go you guys! You're doing all really well. Just remember not to become a Patriots fan and you'll be fine. From Daniel, Kelsy and Mom. We're all sitting here reading your blog and missing you guys. Love you both.
