This is why I pick the poses...(5:45!!) to go wait at the bus stop in the rain with his trumpet
and a Super Sixth lunch!
After W got on the bus....
and handed over his bus driver gift,
I walked back home and went back to bed!!
He was so disappointed that the Real Tree shoes that we ordered were too big (the replacements and the matching lunchbox will be here by Friday.),
but he did have a special lunch,
and a gift for his bus driver and teacher!
Another rainy bus wait....
(I was going with a paper theme this year...)
(Because I knew their first day would be a "piece of cake"! ha ha)
W said his friend Hayley rides the bus,
he was on their for AN HOUR,
his male homeroom teacher was funny,
half of his class was from his elementary school,
he didn't talk to anyone during lunch and wished he had more food in his lunchbox, (even with the second breakfast I packed in his backpack) ,
his favorite part was that he didn't have to go to any classes-just spent the day touring the school and playing games like tug of war, running with a ball between his legs and a group hula hoop relay race! His locker was still broken, so he brought everything back home.
B's first words were "My teacher loves me! Everyone was on green, (no one clipped up or down on the behavior chart) and my tooth is getting looser!"
His only negative was that during recess they had to stay on the pavement because it was so muddy and that some girl named Josie (who was in his kindergarten class) said that he was "her worst nightmare". (Rude!!) He told us "That's a bucket dripper!" and then proceeded to tell us (in minute detail) everything about a book that talks about bucket fillers and bucket drippers...except the title! ha ha
So glad they both had a good start!
(Nothing was assigned, so they just read for 20 minutes.) then screen time (B is newly OBSESSED with messaging and Siri!)
