Colm hits first grade

The nest is officially empty (during the school day) now. Our beamish boy has joined our glittering girl on the daily treadmill to school. Colm is ready. He sees what he's got to do.Tess has blazed the trail before him, and she'll be a boon to him, I think. He still admires his sister above everyone else. His teacher will be one of my former high school students...yet another benchmark of some kind. I'm afraid the reminders of time passing just keep piling up.

The traditional sign making and photo op, followed by the walk.

Beth now walks with them to school in the morning. Sammy comes along, and once in awhile they pick up a friend or two on the way, in this case Owen. I will miss the morning walks with Tess to school. Changes.

How come you don't get to walk Tess to school anymore?

Because Beth walks both kids to school now and since I'm supposed to be at work earlier than they need to be at school...sigh...
