This kid was very excited for his first day of 1st grade. After all the ups and downs of last year I wasn't sure how he was going to do but he was brave and had a positive attitude. So proud of him for that.
A bit of silliness. Also, it was pouring rain and dark when he got on the school bus at o' dark thirty so pictures didn't come until he got home. Hence the dirty pants and silly faces.
Ella was having a rough day without him. She threw herself on her bed and cried after he left. My heart hurt for her so a bit of distraction was in order. With an hour to spare before the bus pulled up, we whipped up some muffins (recipe to come tomorrow) and prettied up the house.
She was so proud of herself. Their sibling bond is so strong. They truly are best friends - the fighting and all.
I think he enjoyed his welcome home party. All he could say was, "Mommy, I'm so hungry and thirsty and can I watch cartoons now?" Ha! Being away from home for 8 hours is tough work.
