My girl, can I tell you that I love the long shirt-dress look. I am so tired of all these kids with their bums hanging out everywhere.
The very brave face. He was so excited to go to school that he was up at 6am and dressed and already telling me it was time for school. Both kids snuggled with me this morning till my alarm went off and then it was the start of the busy morning hustle.
Drama Queen lost a tooth last night. She is falling apart. She did not want me to help with the hair, but she has alot of gel in it. My big 5th grader.
Sweet-boy at his classroom. Their theme is "Cars", something that he really likes. Already kids are in and getting busy with their first project. We found his locker and put his backpack away and got to his desk. I think that this is going to be a good year. His teacher is new to our school but not first grade. She is so nice and so calm and she understood my little guy right off. He is so tender and wants to be every ones friend, but already the boys are being tough. He is energetic, full of life and she understood that her job is to love him. That was it, after that I was sold on her being the teacher for him. Last year I hope we never repeat, but I have high hopes for this year. We will see at 1:30pm when they get home, he might fall apart the day is so long and maybe not.
Drama Queen in on the other side of the building. Last year they were 3 classrooms away, good and bad on that one. Her teacher is also new, but has been a substitute teacher and so she knows her and was excited to have her. Their theme is the ARMY - A Real Mighty You!
Kids from last year that will make her feel right at home. I think I have about a dozen pictures of "The C man" with his tongue hanging out. Drama Queen is sitting right next to one of her friends, so this could be good or something that gets changed right away.
One last look in on Sweet-boy and I am off. Look at the learning that has begun. What a fun room it almost makes me want to be right there with them, but then again.......
I walked home with the other mom's and listened to them talk about their day and I began to think about mine. What to do with myself? Thank goodness I did not have to think long, my sweet VT dropped off this little goodie to help me celebrate the first day of school.
Now that is what I am talking about, Truffles, a Diet Pepsi to myself and a quiet house. This is the good life.
Happy First Day of School!
So the kids are home and I can tell that they needed to have more play time. They are nutts and fighting and wanting to go swim. I think that is a great idea and something that they need to go do. Both liked school and are happy and still excited for tomorrow. That will be the real test, can Sweet-boy handle the all day thing? We got a nice note from his teacher that he did great and that the rest of the year will be wonderful. I can only agree. However, only time will tell and I am learning that I have to let go and let them figure things out on their own.
And to Quote my bloggy friend Elena - And.....they're off!!
