Kindergarten field trip

SO, today I got to go on Egan's field trip to the farm. I love being a SAHM so I can do this. We saw almost everything here - goats and cows, sheep and chickens, a donkey and a sheepdog, bunnies and kittens, ducks and chicks....and on and on. It was really, really fun. And even the 1 hour busride (and 1 hour back too, mind you) wasn't so bad.

On the way home Egan was sitting with the 2 little girls who were in his group on the field trip and I noticed him looking a little frustrated with all the attention and all the noise around him so I snuck him around the seat and pulled him onto my lap. I was rewarded with this lovely smooch! (We were playing with the camera and he'll pose for me every time). And almost directly after the kiss, I noticed that he was awfully still...and he'd fallen asleep on my lap. Now, normally I'm not a sappy mom...but it struck me that this is a moment. I'll never again be on a kindergarten field trip with any of my kids....and never again get to have them fall asleep on my lap in the I must have taken about 25 pictures of him asleep on my lap, hoping to get one that would capture it, but really, nothing captures the fullness of your heart when you realize how lucky you really are.

Ahhh! Thats so cute! I know kids grow too fast don't they! and pictures can't capture things as they really are...things will always look best in your memories.

what cute pictures! It must be so wondeful to be able to spend time with your kids like that! I hope when I have kids I can work or stay at home, that would rock! :)
