It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year...

Here's my big First Grade Son. He was so excited this morning he was up and out of bed at 6:40 a.m.! He also picked out his own clothes today, what do you think of his choice?

Son wasn't even sad to be going back to school, no whining or tears (yet) and he was really excited to carry his new Aladar (Dinosaur) lunchbox. I think it was the prospect of seeing all his friends that made going back to school easier, and the fact that he's an official "big kid," at least in his eyes, because he's not in Kindergarten anymore.

Son didn't cry...but Daughter did! I think she was a bit scared that Son and I got out of the truck and walked away from her, and then her brother got on this big yellow thing and took off up the road. She kept sobbing Son's name over and over...but by the time we got back up the hill to the house she had quieted down. I think Daughter figured out she wouldn't have to fight with her brother for toys to play with and "the seat" on the couch.

She's happily watching Elmo and dancing around the living room right now.

But I can't help but wonder if, since seeing her big brother go off to school, Daughter will be a bit more agreeable when her time comes. We'll see...
