It had to come eventually, and now my baby is officially a 1st grader :-( When I look at these pictures, I realize how big and grown up he looks! It makes me so sad but I know he’ll have a great year. He has a couple of friends from last year in his class and his teacher seems really nice. They start switching classes this year, which seems young for me, I don’t remember doing that until 4th grade, but it doesn’t seem abnormal here!
Its been a little hard getting back into the swing of things, hard to wake him up and get him going in the morning, but that was kind of a trend all last year too, so its not anything new. I’m still dressing him from head to foot, mostly because if he has to do it himself, it will take all morning. I’m thinking about making some kind of checklist for him in the mornings and he’ll get stickers for every thing he does himself and on time. As it is, I have to set a timer for him to eat his breakfast because that’s something else that will take him all morning!
So here are the pictures from his first day of school!
Funny smile first thing in the morning!
The typical look I get in the morning (he’s inherited my morning grumpiness!)
Watching Ninjago with daddy and Emelyn, its his favorite show right now.
