First Day of School Greeting Card

I love this digital stamp.  It reminds me of my oldest son, Brandon's very first day of school.  He ran down the driveway ahead of us to catch the bus.  And there I was, trying to keep up with my 3 year old boy Alexander in tow and baby Benjamin in my arms.  It was the first day of school for us all.  I laughed at the joy he was experiencing that very moment and had tears at the same time.  My first baby was all of a sudden whisked away by the big yellow bus he had been anticipating for weeks stopping outside our house to carry him off to a new world.

Thanks to Helen/Elle at Elephantastic for the digital stamp to play with in the CDAC Progressive Challenge and for bringing back such a fond memory.
