his first day of first grade. he had a blast. he was up early and excited to go. we left the house earlier than i had planned to even. that was a good thing though. got a decent place in front of the school to park - haha! levi and i walked to class with tucker. we were able to chat with his teacher quick. i was able to go into the classroom and snap a picture of tucker in his DESK. he is SO excited about having his own desk this year. pretty sure i sat in the same desk years ago. :) his desk was by the window and also by the interesting things along the side of the room. i think it's the perfect spot.
levi wanted to hang out with brother in the hall. however, we gave tucker kisses and hugs goodbye and we were off. this evening, tucker said he 'almost cried' as he seen me and levi walking away down the hall. but then he said he just started to have fun instead. that's my boy.
bonus tidbits about the day that i learned this evening:
the class has a pet fish. it's name is thor. some girls wanted to name it fairy. tucker wanted to name it skully or larry. logan sits in front of him. natalie sits behind him. he really likes his teacher. they learned just one new song in music. there is one new kid in his class (braylen) ... who also happens to be a neighbor. he knew him, but it was his first year in their class. he didn't eat his apple for a snack (because he said it was his pet?). we'll try crackers tomorrow. he did eat decent for lunch (which he brought from home today). tomorrow is shrimp poppers and he LOVES them. said he could eat sixty of them.
i am really looking forward to first grade. the kid makes me nothing but proud. :)
