Today, my babies started second grade.
(side note/question: when do I have to stop call them my babies?)
They had a great day and on the drive home declared that they thought second grade was going to their favorite grade ever and that they wished that second grade lasted all the way until nighttime. I am thinking their teacher (as precious as she may be) probably is thankful it ended when it did.
Even though I have a first hour class, I was able to have another teacher watch my students for five minutes or so this morning so that I could at least get my boys to their classroom. Tomorrow, it will be before-care for them (which they will be thrilled about), but it was nice to be able to take them myself today. I managed to take a few photos this morning for posterity's sake, although I am fairly certain I will not be winning any photography awards!
|They chose to wear their school shirts today which really are that bright neon green/yellow. |
And yes, they are cheesing it up.
|They always want a picture of their backpacks--the backpacks are unfortunately out of focus, |
but notice their new patches--Mario for Xavier and Sonic for William.
|And, I even used the timer to get in a photo with them myself-- you can see how thrilled they are about that.|
