First Day of Second Grade

So it finally came!  The first day of Second Grade!!  Oh my. . .

Yesterday, I took Aidan to get a hair cut.  It's a good one.  But it always makes me laugh that you tell them to keep it medium length and it ends up the same every time.  Short.  It does look nice, though!
And then today dawned. . .we got up and dressed.  I made him some special homemade pancakes, packed up his backpack and showed him where everything was.. . .measured him: 51 1/2" tall!!!!  Up another inch!!  Yikes!!!  And then it was out to the porch for first day of school pictures:

 Gonna fly through this year!  Yes I am!!!

Those are some awesome eyes. . .

And then we walked up to the corner where the bus picked all the kids up on the other side of the street. 

While he was gone, I got a manicure, which I never do; did some laundry and ironing, which I always do; baked some cookies, and generally hung out looking at the clock every so often trying to imagine what he was doing at school today. 

A little after 3:00, I headed back up the street and hung out with the other neighborhood moms waiting for our kids to come home.

And home they came! 

 And the first words out of his mouth. . ."It was awesome!"

Once home, he handed me his backpack, which has my annual paperwork to deal with, ate a cookie and then said, "Can I go out and play?"  Okay. . .I'll see you later.
And he was gone again.  I guess that's how it is.
And now, I need to look at my paperwork so I can get my homework done!
