Back to School

Aidan went back to school today, as a big 1st grader. He was so excited about his locker. We went up last Friday to find out his teacher, meet her and see the classroom. The teacher and I were talking about the kids in his classroom, when Aidan asked her if this little girl from last year was in his class. Mrs. James looked it up and she was, so the teacher and I were excited he knew somebody. He replied he was hoping not she is really mean...
Aidan doesn't have to be at the school until 8:00 but he got up at 7:00am and was ready at 7:01. It was a long 45-50 minutes until we left. He asked that I not go in and that I not take pictures. (Are you crazy?) I assured him only today. I am so happy he loves it and wants to be so independent but come on your first day of school you need your mom.

The two little ones start tomorrow Tues/Thurs school. Maude has had her outfit picked for 2 weeks. I will blog hopefully tomorrow with pictures of them as well as Aidan's first day.
This will be the first time in 6 1/2 years I will have free time. Well, if you consider free time as grocery shopping, cleaning, driving car pool...I am sure I will squeeze in some time for myself.

  4. Cooper's first day went well. He liked it. He did tell me that there was one teacher who was MEAN (with strong emphasis). Then he said, "I don't think she has any niceness in her at all."

    That's pretty bad to have "no niceness."

  5. What would this world be without nicenesss? Tell Cooper keep looking for those with niceness, there are a lot of them out there.

  6. Hi again! Loved your post about your son. Especially learning new words like "rockomolly" which I plan to add to my vocabulary.
