My New Favorite Picture

Well, today was the first day of school. My kids were so excited, they woke me up at like 6:00a.m. Everything went so smoothly. Unlike some people I know, I was totally 100% prepared for this. We decided to walk. The chatter was so excited. We got to the school. I had to take Thomas first. I dropped him off at the kindergarten playground, and he was gone. I went to take Hazel to her class, and as we entered the gate, passed the playground, started discussing the drop off and pick up, she started walking slower and slower. By the time we were close to her line, I was practically dragging her. Her teacher passed her a name tag, and she started to cry. I tried to comfort her in the one minute of time I had before I had to make it back to the kindergarten playground to help Thomas find his class. It was hard leaving her, but I knew she was in good hands. The teacher looked terrified. She wasn't quite sure what to do for a first grader crying for her mom. Well, anyway here are the "First Day of School" pictures. See if you can tell which one is my favorite.
