Smiling through tears

Filed under: Hooper,Victoria — Lex @ 8:17 am

Today is Hooper’s first day of kindergarten. He’ll be joining Victoria, who’s starting third grade, at the same school. As he left the house, new red backpack on his back, I told him to have a wonderful day. He turned around, flashed a thumbs-up, smiled, and said, “Got it!” before marching on to the minivan.

But that wasn’t why I was tearing up.
