The reality is setting in

I went to the primary school for a new parent kindergarten orientation this evening. It's finalized. Bilal has been registered, and will officially be starting kindergarten in the fall. My baby! The youngest, and our last born, will finally be in school this August.

I was debating whether I actually needed to attend the meeting, after all, this will be my third child headed to kindergarten. But as my astute teenager pointed out, it has been seven years since I've had a kindergartener. So it might not be a bad idea to go to the meeting. Well, I don't know if  I really learned much that I didn't already know, but it was nice to watch the videos that the kids and teachers had prepared, and posted online for the incoming kids and parents to see what a day in kindergarten is like. So sweet, I almost got teared up at the idea of Bilal walking in their shoes. And to think that he'll probably be riding the school bus on the very first day of school! Hamza rode the bus on the first day of kindergarten too, but I worried less about him because he had big sister right there next to him:


See? He didn't even stop to look back at us!

Five years have flown by, and we have gone from this (everybody say Awwww!):

To this:

My sweet little stinker!

Big school already?? I am just trying to warm up to the idea of pre-school. I can't even begin to imagine how I am going to feel when Logan starts kindergarten. Hope everything goes well!!
