10-10 Project….oh how I’ve missed you!

My Summer is a blur in my mind, but I was photographing our daily journeys and will be pleasantly surprised at what was documented when I have the time to review and remember.


I seem to have little of this, yet I feel it going by.

Peyton started Kindergarten and Mallory is back in the public school system, which means… for the first time in 14 years of being at home with my children, I came home to a empty house on September 5th.  I knew this day was coming and like a black rain cloud I could see in the distance it slowly crept towards me. My 10-10 project is of that first day of Kindergarten with my lil’man since his emotions almost mirrored mine that day.  Excitement. Uncertainty. Going through the motions.

Peyton in his slumber.  I rose at 2:45 am excited and dreading leaving him all day.

His look of uncertainty.  I reassured him he’ll have the BEST day EVER!

I got nothing done this day. I watched the clock until I could go pick my boys up from school.

This dirty sock tells me he played, had a fun time, and made new friends in the process.
