Today, the alarm went off at 6:30. It was time to get the little rascal out of bed (and me too) for his first day of 2nd grade.
I know that this summer has been hard, with the horrible heat, we really didn’t do much except head for the pool or play with legos. And I know Andrew was happy to see all his friends again.
The day started with breakfast, and getting dressed. All occurred with little fuss, but lots of eye rubs. We were both tired.
And then the photo shoot began!
Walking to school
Andrew’s dad came to walk with us
Trying to find his classroom
It was alittle hard to leave. I will definitely miss him (and today was only 4hrs haha)
For me, it is always so hard to be away from Andrew. First, he is my little buddy. And to not be with him, or to be able to share his day together, never gets easier. But I know that he is having a great experience with all his friends. Even his best friend will be in his class! WAHOO!
Question for you:
– Did you have any traditions for your first day of school?
My brothers and I always had to stand in the same spot outside our house each year, so we (my mom) could see how much we changed. We also walked with about 10 other kids about a mile to school. It was a great way to wake up in the morning ( I didn’t always think that haha)
