First Day of Second Grade!

It's back to school time which means, summer break has official come to an end.  Holden was nervous going to bed Monday night and he kept asking questions about school, his lunch and so forth.  It took him forever to fall asleep.  Tuesday morning, he was up at 6:20!  I made a special breakfast for the first day.

But by 6:45 he had eaten breakfast, made his bed and gotten dressed!  Then he proceeded to tell me to wake up the others so we would not late.  First day jitters were in full force.

Hard to believe this little guy is beginning 2nd grade!  He looks so big, and it seems to have happened overnight.

It seems that everyone was excited about the first day of school, just look at these three.

Holden with his new backpack and looking so grown up walked into school and down to the Grammar School Hall.  We found his class and got his desk organized and all those first day jitters were washed away!

While Holden was at school and Leyton napped, Rylan and I made a few surprises for Holden's first day of school.

When we picked Holden up, he gave us the scoop about his first day of school and what is expected of him now that he is in 2nd grade. Because as Holden told me, "Mom we have cubbys in the hall like the big kids and we need to be an example to the younger kids."  Too funny!  The first day of Second Grade was a great one, per Holden.  He said he made lots of new friends,  his teacher is awesome, and he said, and I quote, "I love school Mom."

And just like that, our carefree summer days are over.
