Andrew's First Day of School


With some of the neighborhood kids at our bus stop. Ethan officially starts tomorrow, but wanted to hang with the other kids while they waited for the bus.


Looking Good!

Today was Andrew's first day of second grade. Yesterday we went to the school to see his classroom and meet his teacher, Mrs. Boots. Because Andrew is in the Challenge Program (the G&T prgoram in our city) he is in a 2nd/3rd combined class. There are 2 other Andrew's in his class. (Let that be a lesson of what not to name your child!)
We had trouble figuring out exactly what they did today, and whether or not his first day was fun... Hopefully this year his teacher can work on his communication skills with him! Maybe I can get him to blog about the first day later.

I remember thinking I was all grown up when I started second grade - one of the big kids. I can't believe Andrew is a second grader already! I hope he had a great day. He looks very handsome. Good luck to Ethan tomorrow!

What a handsome young man and smart too! Can't believe he is in 2nd grade already. These kiddos all grow up so fast
Love and hugs

Are they really allowed to wear flip-flops to school? That's pretty sweet.

This reminds me of the photos we used to take of you kids on your first day of school...
How did Andrew and Ethan get to be little boys so fast? Weren't they still babies just last month?

Lookin' good Andrew! James is in a 2/3 split too. His haircut isn't quite so nice though...

Another Parker growing up too quickly!
Andrew looks handsome;I already know how smart he is. He and James are both in a 2/3 combination class.
