Adyan Mendez, left, 3, hugs his mother, Elizabeth Mendez, of Naples, as she drops him off at his first day of school at St. Elizabeth Seton Catholic School in Naples on Monday, August 16, 2010. With this being the first year for her son attending school, Mendez fought back tears as she left the building. 'He was excited,' Mendez said, laughing as she wiped her eyes. 'Now he's kicking out.' Monday marked the first day of instruction for Catholic schools in Collier County for the 2010-2011 academic year. Tristan Spinski/Staff
