I just told him yesterday that at his new school this year, he could wear his "play clothes" - he didn't have to wear a uniform like last year. He was ecstatic - he said "you mean I don't have to wear my work shirts?" (apparently what he calls his polo shirts). So this is what he picked out to wear for the first day - and I decided not to make a big deal of it. I guess little boys just wear play clothes to school! :)
Here's the whole gang - ready to take Josiah to school!
Walking in....(see the superhero backpack...again, not a battle worth fighting in my opinion - he was SO excited about it).
He walked right in and started putting his stuff in his cubby and on his hook. His teacher has the room decorated in sort of an outdoor/wilderness theme (complete with tent in the reading area!). See the bathroom labeled "outhouse?" adorable!
Then he walked right over to his desk and started in on his papers that were out for him. He LOVES the routine of school and I think is going to have a great day!!! I can't wait to hear all about it!
When we came home, Jacob and Callie sat on the couch together to watch Curious George. It's already strangely quiet around here...we all miss him already, but it's going to be a good thing. As soon as we dropped Josiah off, Jacob said "now I'M the boss of the kids"! We had talked about how he'll be the oldest at home again while Josiah's at school, he'd need to be a good helper, etc. Apparently he gets it! :)
We've already made cupcakes and they are cooling on the counter right now. I'm looking forward to naptime, and then we get to go pick him up. I have NO idea how to do the "car line" - should be interesting!!! I'll keep you posted!
