First Day of School 2013

Yesterday was the kids' first day of school.  I've got a Kindergartner, a second grader and one in fifth grade.  How is that even possible?  

Jack was totally excited for his day.  He got a new back pack even though he didn't need one and was excited it was camo.  I love that he clipped on his two little furry friends (Fetch and Root Beer).

Jack is in the half day program (they only have half day at our school) so I wasn't overly sad.  He's at school for just 2.5 hours and I knew he'd be totally fine.  

Jack was also very excited to ride the bus and when it came, he hopped right on and never looked back.  I'm so happy he's that type of kid.  I much rather that than him sobbing and reaching out to me as the bus drives away. 

When I went to pick him up, he was all smiles and reported a great day.

Then there's little miss diva, my second grader.  She was so happy to be getting back to school.  She just loves it.  

She had her outfit picked out and her new Vera Bradley back pack.  She elected for a sock bun for her hair.

Despite her air of confidence, she did seem a little nervous about finding her classroom.  She asked me the direction to make sure she knew which way to go.  

When she got off the bus, all her fears had been put to rest.  She found her classroom (and there were people there to help, just like I had said) and she had a great day meeting her teacher and new friends.

Then there's Nicholas.  Oh Nicholas.  He just does NOT like school.  He never has really.  It bores him.  It's kind of scary because I don't want to "lose" him at some point.  That's a story for another day, however.  Let's just say he is a much bigger fan of summer fun.

I thought he looked so adorable.   It's no accident this outfit is head to toe Nike.  Can't mix brands.  Ok he might occasionally, but he doesn't like to do it.  

As he was getting off the bus, he was telling all the kids, "Oh no they're taking pictures." 

He promptly covered his face.

He reported a good day as well, but would have jumped for joy if I said he didn't have to go back again today.

I'm sad that summer is over, but I'm enjoying getting back into somewhat of a routine.  I do better with a schedule, rather than just a free for all.  I tend to do a lot less of everything in the summer.  Time to crack down.

Here's to a GREAT school year.
