a day of firsts

yesterday was the first day of first grade for niko.  new teacher, new classroom and new friends.   niko was so excited and so ready to start school again.  he didn't even flinch when the parents had to leave.  i wish i could say i was that strong.  it was a bitter sweet moment for me.  where did the summer go?  how did my baby become a first grader?  

take a look at our boy...
