First Day of School: Kindergarten

Today was Nathaniel's first day of kindergarten. All summer long, he was so excited to be moving up a class. He was looking forward to eating at the cafeteria and playing at the big gym. However, this morning, he had a little breakdown. He was crying because he said he will miss me! To be honest, I was a little worried too because this year is his first full day school. Thankfully, Hubs Skyped for a little bit and was able to lift Nathaniel's spirit. And just as I expected, Nathaniel completely forgot about me as soon as he saw his friends at the bus stop. I even had to beg him for a hug and kiss goodbye. And Nathaniel had a good, successful first day. I can't believe how fast he is growing!

Water Hose

Amelia loves to play in the water as long as it is not the pool. We learned that quickly during swim lessons! I took photos with my iPhone first of Amelia playing with the water hose with my Lola before grabbing the big camera. However, I remember giving up quickly because Amelia kept giving me a super exaggerated "eeeeeeese" (cheese) smile. And I couldn't back up enough without the thorny bushes hitting me to compose the shot and not cut off her foot. I'm sure fellow photogs are the only ones bothered about that last one. Haha!

(Side note: I can see now that her gums are swollen because all four of her canines were/are growing. They gave all of us a rough time later!)

(Side note #2: You can spy Amelia's café au lait spot. We wondered how big her birthmark will get. But based on her last few doctor/well baby visits, it hasn't grown in a while. So I guess that is it!)

This moment comes in a full circle. I remember seeing photos of me around Amelia's age playing in the water also in my undies with my Lola. Now it is her turn! Unfortunately, I can't find a photo doing exactly just that (maybe they are still in the Philippines?). So now I must embarrassed my older sister with this photo instead ;)
