The end of the beginning and the beginning of the end

There were confident smiles...
And shaky tears...
(Transition is never easy, you know.)
But in the end, they scooted off to school...
...and thus began our second -- and final -- year in London.

I hope that you are greeted with a huge smile from Evan at the end of his first day, and that they both have a great day!

At least this year you don't have to navigate the walk with a stroller...

Wow, your summer was really short, weren't you in school on July 4th?

Oh, sweet little Evan!! Bless his punkin heart. I hope he ended up having a wonderful day - or quickly adapts to the change.

Evan, oh Evan! Those pictures just tug at my heart. (But, at the same time, have me giggling just a bit -- don't tell Evan -- because how great will those be in 10 years?!) Julia looks so grown and confident.

Am also loving the scooters. Do you have to walk those back by yourself, R?

Yes, summer is incredibly short here, Ginger -- only 8 weeks off. In truth, that was just about perfect -- time to do some fun stuff, but not long enough for my kids and I to get sick of each other. Perhaps the British system has something here... :)

Jennifer, there's special scooter parking at school, so no need to cart the things home again (thank goodness). It's not uncommon to see a mother whizzing away from pickup on her kid's scooter, though, and it always makes me giggle!

Wow, I love your front door (sorry, I know I was meant to be looking at the kids). Hope they are settling in to the new year ok.

That second picture is just heart wrenching...I hope they ended up having a great day.

Those tears. The covering of his eyes. My guy is doing that...and stress puking, too. Brave soldier you have, scooting off.
