First Day of First Grade
September 3, 2013
We had a nice (but a bit chilly) morning.  Connor wanted to wear his new shirt and light-up Star Wars tennis shoes and wanted his old Spongebob backpack from last year.  (Mr. Wilson supervised the morning photos from inside.)  We met up with Hannah, Grant, and Alyson at the bus stop and all decided to walk together.  We love living just across the main road from school.  We met up with lots of old friends and many new faces at school (and everyone has fewer teeth this year).  There are two Connors (Connor and Conner), two Dylans, and two Alysons (Alyson and Alison) in Connor's new class.  Connor met Mrs. Barlow and found the Bear Zone.  Ryan was holding the sign.  We were among the first to arrive and we waited until about 9:10 to go in.  Connor was a bit anxious and very tired, but did well.

After school, I met Connor at the bus stop.  We have a new bus driver this year (Tammy).  We LOVED Mrs. Lindley from last year.  I treated Connor to homemade chocolate chip cookies & milk when he arrived home.  Shortly thereafter, we left for Bounce gymnastics.  He crashed in the car but promptly woke up and found a second wave of energy.  We miss his teacher, Mason, who left for college.  His new teacher is Quentin.  We arrived home, ate homemade broccoli & cheddar soup (one of Connor's favorites), watched a little TV / iPad, read a chapter of "Charlotte's Web," then it was lights out (no objections from Connor . . . he crashed within 10 minutes of saying goodnight).
