I have a lot of blog catching up to do, but hey, this is a start!
Everyone was excited for school to start, especially me!
We took the classic front porch pictures and I tried to get a good picture of them waiting for the bus, but that was pretty hard.
Griffin + excitement = very blurry pictures.
I wanted to drive them to school, but Griffin insisted on taking the bus with Maddox. So, I followed the bus and surprised them with my camera as they got off at school.
(I think this may be the last year Maddox will allow me to do that)
Maddox has the same teacher, classroom and kids as last year. The only thing different is the sign by the door that says 2nd grade, not 1st. He kept telling me I got it mom, I got it when I tried to get him settled in. Notice that lovely haircut in the background. What was that mom thinking?
I then drove back to school at 10:30 to take pictures of Griffin getting on the "squirrel" bus.
2 reasons...(1) to make sure he got on the right bus and (2) to show Reese what a squirrel bus was.
In her head, she imagined it was like the cat bus from Totoro. I showed her the tiny picture of the squirrel in the window of the bus and her face was pure disappointment. THAT was not a squirrel bus.
Griffin was excited to ride home with his neighbor friend Allison (in front)
In fact, I think the entire first week, if she was sitting next to someone else on the bus, he politely asked them to move so he could sit next to her.
And check out the kindergarten bus driver! He looks like Santa, what could be better!
