First Day...of Third Grade.

Today, was Nathan's first day of third grade. It is so hard to believe for me. He really is growing up so fast. Before I know it he will be getting his driver's license and driving himself to school.
But, today he rode the bus. As a matter of fact, he insisted on riding the bus. I wanted to take him so I could get some pictures and Todd could get some video. He suggested that I just follow the bus to school and meet him there. What a grand idea. Seems like I've done that before. I did that in kindergarten, when I really didn't want him to ride the bus.
Jacob and Nathan on their way to breakfast. Jacob is in fifth grade and is a bus patrol this year.

The school advertises healthy breakfasts and lunches. They had pizza for breakfast. Am I missing something?
He knew exactly where to go. His classroom is located in the new wing of the newly remodeled school.
Until, he got here. Then it was, "Which room is it Mom?" He almost passed it, but we got him back on track.
He only has seventeen students in his class. I was very happy about that. No overcrowding there.
He didn't cry when we left. Matter of fact, he hardly even told us goodbye. Once he found his desk, he settled in, started unpacking his supplies and was ready for Showtime.

Third Grade...Here He Comes.

It's hard to believe that just yesterday, he was a baby in my arms. Today, he is a very healthy eight year old going into the third grade. When I say healthy, I mean it in a good way, but he really needs to start fall ball and drop some of those pizza flavored Pringles. We have tried to stay busy this summer but he has spent a lot of time in the house watching TV and playing Wii and the new DSi he got for his birthday.

Thursday night we went to orientation and met his new teacher. I was very pleased with her and the fact that he only has 17 students in his class. That is very unusual these days. Seems the school board is always talking about the overcrowding in the classrooms. Stay tuned. I will try to remember to take pictures on the first day of school.

Summer...comes to an end.

I got a wonderful piece of mail today. It was from Nathan's school. It gave me lots of information. The best piece of information is that school starts soon. I've got one more week to entertain my son and then it's his teacher's turn. We have had a great summer. But, I must admit I am weary. I'm ready for school to start.

We have had a full summer. We started out camping in North Carolina. We celebrated Nathan's birthday by going to Busch Gardens and most recently we went to Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure in Orlando.
