We woke up early this morning, packed his back pack, made his lunch, which he thought was the best thing about going all day to school - packing a lunch to school. We got him ready and then he wanted to ride his bike to school so Lance and I walked by his side while he rode his bike.
We got to the school and we parked his bike at the bike rack and then we found his classroom and put his things in his cubby and then he wanted to run outside and play until the bell rang. So Lance and I and about a hundred other parents watched from the sides as the kids played until the bell rang. He ran right to his class and found his seat. He was so happy that he recognized about half the students in his class from kindergarden last year.
I think he is really going to love this year. We will report on his day when he gets home. His day starts at 8:55 a.m. and we walk down to pick him up at 3:40 p.m.. Kind of missing him today. Andrew is loving that he pretty much owns the house and is the big brother now.
Here are a few things Keaton said he can do now that he is 6 years old.....
- mom, I can climb up the bunk bed latter with only one hand
- I can carry Ellie standing up
- I don't have to wear a bike helmet because that is only for little boys
- I can make myself breakfast and clean up after myself because I am 6
the list goes on and on. It is quite amazing that since he turned 6, he thinks he can do everything. I love how his little mind works. If you ever get the chance to sit and listen to him, he is quite intelligent. Gets it from his father, that is for sure.
Can you believe I have 4 children? Also the fact that I now have a 1st grader just blows me away. Here are all my reasons to live!
