The couch looked just like this Sunday night when we all went to bed. Everything was ready for the next day. All we needed was a good night of sleep.
We woke the boys up around 6 that day so we could have time for pictures and to get to school almost an hour early. A dear friend gave me the fabulous hint before our K year to get there at 7:00-7:15 so you get a parking spot and not have to fight traffic. Since then, we aim to leave home by 7 and then just hang out in the car for a few minutes or walk up and visit with friends. This has worked great each year because we never fight traffic or for parking spots. And, there isn't a rush or frantic pace for Jonah on the first day.
They ate their yummy breakfast of pancakes, turkey bacon and grapes before going outside for First Day of School photos.
I would delete the next photo but Micah's eyes kill me. You should know that this is what he does in about 80% of all photos these days. It doesn't make for good photos but it is funny!
Micah got to go with us to Jonah's school because his starts later. He happily walked with his brother. He was "really kind of excited to see all of Jonah's friends and Mrs. Leonard!"
We stood around and visited with a lot of Jonah's friends and their parents. I couldn't help but note the apprehension on so many faces as they walked up on the first day at a new school. I remember being that parent and so unsure. If I had only known how well Jonah would do here and how much he would be loved and love in return. It's been a great school and great experience for him.
Jonah and Logan have been together since Day 1. They have been in every class together. They are best buddies.
Our sweet little friend (and by sweet, I mean like dripping with sugar. She is so precious to us!!) Meagan is a 5th grade safety patrol this year.
Overall, it was a perfect first day! Both boys love their school. Both boys love their teachers. That makes this momma happy!
