Budding Photographer and School Anxiety

Don't you love when you open your pictures and see your kids have gotten a hold of the camera? I remember Scott taking this picture of me but I didn't realize they had taken the other ones. My favorite pictures are the ones where you can see up Scott's nose and the one where he is posing for the camera. It takes real talent to capture those moments. My kids defintely aren't amatuers. But since Greg never takes pictures, I guess the only way to get pictures of me is to have my kids take them :)

Here are some pics of Scott's preschool gradutation. Two friends from out ward who have kids Scott's age took turns doing preschool at their house. They did so many fun, cute and of course educational activities with the kids, and of course Scott loved it! It is fun to see hime grow up and I am amazed at how much he has already changed this summer!
He will start school in a couple of weeks (sob) and I have mixed feelings about it. He is so excited to go to school and I'm excited for him! But in Texas they have full day kindergarten, so he will leave our house (on a bus) around 7:15 and come home about 3:08. Doesn't that seem like a long day for a 5 year old? The other moms I have talked to said the kids come home exhausted for the first month or so and then they get used to it. I think it just makes me realize that he isn't mine, he is going to have his own life. I'm not getting dramatic, like he's leaving me soon or anything, it just makes me realize that I don't have complete control over his development anymore, I'm turning over the some of the control over to his teachers and peers! It's kindof scary!

It makes me get choked up thinking about Paige going to school. What will I do when my sweet helper is gone?

Yah...that seems like a long day, but 2-1/2 hours here in Utah is not enough! I love it when my kids take pictures...it makes me get a glimpse of what they see all day long.

P.S. It might be time to change your blog background, but on the other hand you could just leave it for a few more months until it is Thanksgiving again! :)

I love all the cute pics, but I think Daniel's is darling!
Hard to believe Scott is a kindergartner! Blink and he'll be leaving on a mission.
xoxoxo

Christy,
I feel the same about Carter. I'm excited because I know he'll love it, but sad and nervous to let him go into the big scary world all by himself. The school bus seems like such a big thing too. I hope you and the fam can come visit us soon. We would love to see you guys. We've found lots of fun stuff to do.
