It's official...

He is big now!


Ian started the First Grade today! It is hard to believe! He had his backpack packed, his hair gelled perfectly, his new lunchbox was full and he was ready for his day!
Isabelle was excited about the day too. It means that we get a "girl day" at home.
By 7am we were loading in the car to head of to school! There is so much excitement at a school on the first day! We found his teacher and I said goodbye and gave him a big kiss! He didn't seem to mind too much that I kissed him in front of everyone...I will do it as long as I can!
His first day seemed to be a success. He likes his new teacher and got to make paper snowballs in art class. Eating lunch at school is pretty cool and he earned a sticker as a reward today. that is about as much as I could get out of him about his day before he was begging to go out and ride his bike! Sounds like a pretty cool day for a six year old!

What a big day for a big boy! How sad and exciting all at once. I am in no hurry for mine to head to real school.
