AKA the 1st and 3rd Grade Edition...!
OR as the "Only year that EVERYONE who is in school is at the SAME school" Edition...!
...Today was the day that Noah FINALLY got to go to the "big kids" elementary school (after dropping and picking Evan up with me the last 3 years) - and he was SO pumped that he actually figured out how to set the alarm for 7:01am on his Yoda clock and woke up an extra 24ish minutes early!
"Dad" drove them to school, and even though they are in different buildings, they still said sweet good-byes to each other before heading off.
AND NASH... He FINALLY gets to reclaim his part-time only child status. After school drop-off he headed off to the nursery at the gym with Eric & I, and then on a little Target run just with Mommy. And I think he kind of loved it. I can't help but think back to when Noah was the same age and Evan headed back off to preschool leaving Noah on his own all morning. Oh how time flies, which is part of the reason this is making it into a blog post - if just for me to remember 5 more years from now.
...School carline pick-up was the BEST. Noah hopped in and smiled REALLY big to show me that he had lost his top front tooth at LUNCH!!! It doesn't get better than that for first day memories, and even though he thought the "bloody tooth" might be in his lunch box, it wasn't - so in lieu of a tooth we provided the toothfairy with a sweet note and instax evidence of the loss.
...Here's to an amazing 2016-2017 school year. Even though we're already missing summer!
