Back to School 2011

J and Apple headed back to school. J last week and Apple this week. So we had two first days to celebrate.

Unfortunately J wasn’t in the mood for photos, I think he was a bit nervous for first day. At his school they have to all cram into the gym and find their name on a list under the teachers name, not the best scenario to start the new year. He has to go not knowing who his teacher is or who is in his class. It can lead for a very disappointed first day. Thankfully, it all worked out and the new Principal is looking to changing things up for next year.  There has to be a better way to start the school year off.

Apple on the other hand knew who her teacher was going to be and went in to meet her last week. So she was ready and primed for the first day.

Off she went without a look back to Mom and Dad who were waiting by the fence.  Then she listened to her instructions from her teacher, with the look of… ok just tell me so I can go and play, thanks.

As Hubby said before we left for school yesterday, ‘this is it, all of our kids are at school and they will never again have the freedom they have had, they will always have to be at school or at work forever.’ Of course I did respond that they could become millionaires and take care of Mom and Dad in their old age and never have to work again… there is hope…

    So cute!

    Your hubbies sentiments are why I kept my youngest home until kindergarten. All my friends thought I was crazy not to send her to preschool.

    Oh Kim, that is exactly why I stayed home with the kids as well, and we didn’t send them to pre-school either. There will be too many years for them to be in school or out in the workforce. A hard choice to make, but a good one for our family.

    there is always hope :)

    Apple looks so cute and I am glad it went well. My sensitive 6yo is still stressed every day and I am stuck hanging with him until it is time to go in. I am always happy to see other kids who are so happy to go. Makes life so much easier.
