Just a year ago, I brought Finn to his little preschool--gel in his hair by request, same as today, to mark the special occasion--and took his picture in front of the September calendar. This year, though, as I took the same picture, it was pretty clear that he posed for me not as a timid newbie, but as an alumni on a campus that he's grown comfortable with, surrounded by teachers and students he recognizes and loves.
Especially this one.
Yup, Logan and Finney are in the same class again and couldn't be happier about it. As soon as they made the connection themselves (it's not the same as being told by their Moms all summer long, apparently), they scampered off to the playground, professing their undying love to one another as they climbed to the top of the jungle gym.
"You're my best friend." "You're my best friend." They were so matter of fact about it, as if they were confirming their next dental appointment.
My heart crumbled from the cuteness of it all.
