1st day of school

1st day of school 03.

Here he is on the front steps, about to enter for his first day of First Grade. It's unbelievable. He's so acutely aware, not to mention intelligent (he uses 'shall' y'all!) yet still cannot tie his shoes.

When he saw me after the day was over, he announced that he did indeed love First Grade and it wasn't going to be as hard as he thought.

I didn't have the heart to tell him that this week, and more likely next, are more of a review than an attempt to learn anything new. I'll let him figure that out for himself gradually so as not to burst his good mood.
