My big 1st grader
Ryder at his new desk
After school yummy-goodness
Coming home on the bus
He has 21 children in his room this year. That may change yet as the year goes on, they will probably get a few new kids with the oil boom. He took cold lunch today, as chili on a day when it's supposed to be 100* probably isn't a good thing.
The night before school, I asked Ryder a few questions and made this during his first day. I am going to try and do this every year. What a great way to look back!
I did very well on the first day. No tears. I am a little lonely at home without his toothless grin to see throughout the day, but I know he's having fun learning and playing with his buddies. This is such a growing time for a child in school, learning how to interact with others.
I found this poem on FB, a friend had posted it. How true and fitting.
