This school year was different from any other. It was the 1st time that I left before the boys to get there. Before I headed out, we took our traditional 1st day of school photos.
Luke is in 4th grade this year. I can't believe it. I swear he was just born.
Jack is still in preschool. He'll be 5 in December and barely missed the cut-off date, but I think another year of preschool is the right route anyway. I'm glad he'll have more time to just play and socialize. Jack insisted on a mohawk this year! He also requests heavy metal when we are driving in the car. Is that possible for a 4 year old???
Charlie is in 1st grade. He is in my good friend's class, which makes it a lot of fun! Oh my Charlie. This kid just grins and rolls with it.
When we asked them to take one more picture together, they were a bit over it....
Although I was very excited to return to teaching 1st grade after 8 years of staying home with my boys, the one thing that got me choked up every time I thought of it, was the drop off. I could not believe I would not be there to walk them to their rooms for the drop off. But, Kevin did did a great job.
I can't complain, I get to see them everyday during school. I could not do that if I was not working there, so I am choosing the positive over the one bummer.
Luke is camera shy, so Kevin did a good job as dad spy for the morning. I love how this captures Luke; serious and a bit nervous. He does better once he knows where everything is and how it all works. I'm that way too. Although at his age, I was mostly likely gabbing to friends and comparing outfits. He just wants to get to business.
I'm looking forward to a great year for my boys. They change so much each year. I'm also loving my time in the classroom. We are already like a little family.
How did the 1st day of school go in your casa?
