I have so many things I want to write about last weekend at the Siesta Fiesta in San Antonio, but Nathan's first day of second grade completely trumps it for now. I took the day off so that I could drive him to school, and then pick him up at the end of the day and so I was able to get some pictures of him this morning at home and in his new classroom.
I think this might be the last year that I am able to walk him to his class without causing him embarrassment. He was okay today, but I could tell that he was a little antsy about my camera once we got to school. He's still my baby, but he's growing up and I am having to make adjustments to my behavior in public. I try to be aware of the proximity of his friends and try to keep the PDA to a minimum. I don't think he's ever been embarrassed by holding my hand or being kissed in public, but these days I try to keep the ball in his court. If he grabs my hand (and I keep it readily available and accessible), I gladly hold on. But I let him choose.
