It was Hudson’s first day of school. He’s attending pre-school in the same school that Kevin grew up in. It’s the same school that his grandma Rhonda had just retired from teaching 5th grade. It’s the same school where his best friend was also attending.
It was not hard to get him up that morning. He hoped right out of bed and put on the clothes that he picked out the night before. Of course the shirt had Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on it!
He was so happy and excited that he patiently stood by the sign in our front yard and waited for me to take a bunch of pictures. That never happens!
We had just planted that white swamp oak the week before with the Taiwan Ag group that came and visited our farm. I thought since it was about the same size as Hudson that it would be fun to take his picture by it every year on the first day of school to see who grows faster (it’ll probably all depend on how often I remember to water the tree!).

After we dropped Axten of at daycare, Hudson and I arrived at his new school. I wasn’t sure what he would do when we got there. Part of me knew how excited he was, but part of me knew that sometimes he plays the shy card around new people.
He walked like a big kid right now the hallways to his classroom. I think schools have certain smells when you first walk into them at the start of a new year. It brought back so many memories from my school that I went to in Nebraska. I was so excited for him, for all the things that he’s going to learn, all the friends that he’s going to meet, and all the memories that he’s going to make.
Since it was the first day, I came into his classroom with him and got to see his seat and his locker.
He seemed right at home there. We had already had the opportunity to meet his teacher two times before school actually started, so he was ready for this. So I said my goodbyes and headed to work…with no tears shed by anyone other than Axten. He was NOT happy that we left his at daycare without his big brother. He cried for about five minutes and then was fine I was told.
