First Grader!

Well, our son went back to school today. He was excited, but also nervous about meeting all the new people. Last night as we were making final preparation, he said, "If I like 1st grade here, can we stay for 2nd?" No problem buddy, I don't want to move again for awhile, either!

He's back home now, and he had a couple observations. His teacher is much nicer than he thought she'd be - when I asked him what he meant, he said "not so ugly." Um, OK then! He proudly announced he has 2 new best friends - but he can't remember either of their names. :) The one that really had me cracking up, though, is when he said that some of the kids weren't there - they were "accidents" (absent)

So what did I do to celebrate this momentous event? Well, A and I ran around. First, a stop at Starbucks (strictly for me), then returning items to Wal-Mart, browsing at Hobby Lobby, and haircuts (with a $5.95 coupon!) Yep, this is what settling in is like...

Is the stencil work on the wall something you added, or was it already there?
