First Week of First Grade

Last Monday was the first day of first grade for Tom and Abby. They are in separate classes this year. I wish I had a wealth of information to tell you about their first week, but if you've ever tried to pry information out of a 5 year old about their day, you'll quickly realize they are not very forthcoming.

I did find out that on the first recess on the first day, Tom went and found Abby and gave her a big hug. What a sweet brother he is.

On the first day I was able to walk them to school because they had a reverse minimum day. Get that? That means they start late and end on time. We went outside to take our annual photos first. They look so big, don't they?

For the rest of the week, and the rest of the year, Paul is taking the twins to school when they start at 8AM. That means, Mommy is a very happy Mommy and she doesn't have nap! She gets to sleep in! They kids have been waking up at 7AM and by the end of the week, we could tell they were getting tired even with our strict bedtime of 8PM.

I hope the rest of the year goes as smooth as the first week.

Just for comparison here are there other First Days.
