Look who's a big second grader today! He was excited to go to the new school they just built, but told me he only likes going on the first day, and then none of the rest. Sounds like one of those things you have to say to sound cool in front of your friends. But I'm excited for everything he'll learn this year. His favorite thing at school is to draw and color, but I love all the funny little words he writes that go with the pictures too. He's always the one who spends little time writing but lots of time detailing his artwork. It's funny to go in his class and see some that are the complete opposite and could care less about coloring. Maybe part of it came from when I took him with me to the office everyday as a toddler and he would stay busy coloring papers with highlighters on the floor next to my desk? I like to think so.
And he got such a cute teacher- Mrs. Fredrickson. I think they'll be a good match.
After school we bombarded him with questions. (I think he secretly loved it.)
