The school year began here on Wednesday. I was a little worried about how the first day would go, considering neither one of the boys seemed to be all that excited about going back. They weren't not excited either...they just didn't seem overly enthused one way or the other.
Thankfully that changed Monday evening when we had "Back to School" night at the school. The boys delivered their school supplies, met their new classmates, and spent some time saying hello to their teachers. After Monday evening, they were ready (and excited) about going back to school.
Jellybean has the same teacher he had last year (we have the boys enrolled in the "Multi-age" program here, so they have the same teacher two years in a row). Peanut has a new teacher this year (Multi-age starts after Kindergarten, so he'll have his current teacher for 2 years now). Thankfully, I think she's going to be a great fit for him. A HUGE improvement from last year (the parental units in this family kind of butted heads with the Kinder teacher last year).
Here are my super handsome boys on the first day of school.
Don't they just look all grown up? Sniff...
The boys seem to have had a great first three days of school. They like their teachers a lot, they are doing well, and they have come home with lots of fun stories to tell. Jellybean has been coming home excited to tell me he did his math and writing all right!! And Peanut reports that he has been doing a good job keeping on task. Considering the fact that last year we had a note sent home from the teacher on the first day of school for bad behavior, I'm calling this year's start to the school year a success!
