first day of school

The day has finally come! Today is Preston's first day at NYU, and we couldn't be more excited. Grad school has been a long time coming and we're so glad for him to finally begin. I insisted Preston let me take a couple of pictures of him before he left and he (very reluctantly) let me.

I'm a little nervous for him, just because we have no idea how heavy the work load will be. Everyone says it is so much harder than undergrad work. We're keeping our fingers crossed that the people who say that all tend to exaggerate :) And even if they are right, we're hoping that because it's film school, it will be a bit more enjoyable. Do you have any experience with graduate school? I'd love to hear your thoughts. Wish my man luck friends!

In case you are wondering, here is what Preston is wearing:
{Shirt - handmade}
{Jeans - Gap}
{Shoes - Chuck Taylor}
{Bag - Moop (his graduation gift!)}


  1. hahahaa. he looks THRILLED to be getting his picture taken. good luck!!!

  2. best of luck to him! I'm sure you're right that film school will be more fun that typical grad school experiences :)

  3. good luck! he'll love NYC :)

  4. I really like the shirt! Did you make it?

  5. My Songbook,

    I didn't make the shirt. I tried to find the girl's shop who made it, but was unsuccessful. If I find it though, I'll let you know!


  6. so exciting!! I have been thinking about taking pictures of Aaron before he leaves for his forst day of grad school tomorrow, I'm pretty sure they will end up very similar to Preston's.. where is their enthusiasm?!

  7. Jen,

    Preston said he felt like I was his badgering mom who every year on the first day of school would make him do a cheesy pose before leaving. ha! I'm just glad I have these to remember, and to remind him what a punk he was!

  8. Haha and Elliott will be just like him someday.... Enjoy the pose striking while you can! :) Love you guys to pieces and i'm so proud!
