We knew ahead of time who Micah's teacher was but I didn't tell him. I never do because anything can happen leading up to the day and I don't ever want them to be disappointed. He hoped he had Ms. Peterson. Her parents are our neighbors. Her son is Micah's friend. He's seen her around and has always really liked her.
He was super disappointed when they gave him the slip that said "WARD."
What he didn't realize was that Mrs. Ward is the Ms. Peterson that he knew. She got married and he didn't know her married name. When we explained that to him, he was so happy. He did a little fist pump and said "YES!"
We ran into our friend Hailey on the way to Mrs. Ward's classroom. She is in a different class this year. She's in the class with Miller and few other friends from last year.
Jonah was with us today and he was happy to see his friend A.J. They were big buddies through their years at Freedom and now their little brothers are in class together.
The Glenn and Trenholm kids were happy to spend some time at the photo booth!
Micah and Mrs. Ward made some S'mores in the Photo Booth. He is all about a photo booth so this immediately won him over!!!
Vette is Mrs. Ward's son. He and Micah are the same age. He just got glasses last week. He wanted a picture with and without his glasses.
Sam came in as we were close to finishing up in Mrs. Ward's room. Micah was happy to see him walk in.
Jonah and Cameron look so big compared to those little first grade siblings of theirs.
Apparently stripes are the thing this year for first grade boys!
We went to find Miller so we could have a picture with him as well. (More stripes!)
Jonah was dying to stop by to see Mrs. Willard. We ran by there on our way out and there was no one in her room at the time so we got to visit for a bit with her. We already miss her but know Middle School will be great.
It was another good day that makes a Glenn kiddo excited for a new school year. We're blessed with another fabulous teacher and look forward to an amazing 1st grade year!
