First Day of School!

Yesterday was the Pirate's first day of school! I know there are moms all over the country who experienced the exact same thing, and it was just as shocking to them, but HOW IN THE WORLD DO I HAVE A SCHOOL KID???

Because the Kindergarten program here is a half day thing (ugh, not even half day 12:10-2:45!) he also had to swap to a new daycare/preschool. While we love the old place, she doesn't have the means to transport kids to school, especially not to a variety of schools. So we got everyone ready and first went to the new daycare. Here's the Pirate's smiling face- he was a bit excited.

And here he is with the Bug. No, there aren't uniforms, the Bug just really REALLY wanted to be like his brother.

After a bit of help extricating the Bug from the new place ("I go Westside too! I go school!") we left him there for the morning. Grandpa came over around lunch time and Mike and I went and picked up the Pirate to take him to "real" school.

He had a little problem with his lunch, therefore, new clean shirt for school. We took him in and expected to have to settle his nerves, but he barely looked back at us.

At the end of the day, he could not stop talking about what fun he had and all the new things he did. He learned to do monkey bars all by himself! (I have yet to see this in action.) He colored a book about being at school!  He ate a hot dog! Sadly, he did not learn how to read. (I guess he thought it would happen in a day?)

Overall, he had a terrific day and is so so SO excited to be a big kid.

  1. How cute is that? Glad it went well overall!

  2. Oh my god. First day of school. How has it come around so quickly? The Boy doesn't start for another week and a bit. Did you cry? I think I will. Especially as he WILL be wearing a uniform. Looking all grown up. I might just have a bit of a cry now..

  3. Great pictures. I can't believe how much Pirate and Bug have grown! So glad you were able to do the first day of school thing with Pirate. Also, it is great that he is excited to go.

    Blink a couple of times and all your children will be gone from home.

  4. He is getting so tall! Congratulations to you all on the first day!

  5. That's so great that it went so well! And how adorable is it that they are dressed alike? Hope you are still feeling well!

  6. I'm so glad you were able to be there for the Pirate today! He really does look like a happy little man--glad to hear it all went to well.

  7. How adorable!! The boys are so cute.

    Here's to a great school year for all of you.
