Welcome to First Grade

Today is Jacob's first day of First Grade! He is quite excited for school to start. He even let me pick out his outfit AND he put it on without any flack. This is coming from the kid who only wears Nike shorts and Mario/Star Wars/Bakugan shirts.

He gets to take his lunch (his choice); he didn't want to buy school lunch yet. Oh the joys of having a child in all-day school. I did get a little teary-eyed, but that was short lived. Now I get to spend some one-on-one time with Ben. I'm excited about that. But I will miss my tender-heart Jacob.

Ben had to put his CARS backpack on while we took Jacob to school. He even had to walk into the classroom, hang up his backpack, and sit at the desk next to his big brother. What a cute kid. He wasn't too thrilled when I said it was time to leave. A promise to check out a book about Trucks and Race Cars appeased him enough for us to escape without too much commotion.

Here are some funny and sweet pictures of the morning's events.
