I just couldn't resist taking a picture of him the night before the big day! (He is already changing...he NEVER sleeps on his back...always been a belly sleeper!)
Bos woke up at 5:30 this morning ready to get dressed and go! (Is he not THE cutest thing you have laid eyes on???) You'll notice he is wearing flip-flops--a big no-no at schools here. He tried to put on his tennis shoes that I bought him in JULY and they were too small! We had to run to Target on the way to school and buy him a new pair...SIZE ONE!!! He has grown 3 inches and gained 3 pounds since his fourth birthday, just 6 months ago. Everyone things he looks like a first grader...ugh! Riley, this pic is for you! He wanted you to see his new backpack! =)
Boston held my hand all the way into school. When he got to his classroom he let me take his picture with Mrs. Seaton and then just headed in to hang up his backpack. That was it. No big deal for him. However, I have to admit when I was driving away I may have at least had the thought of getting a bit choked up...both kids are just growing up so quickly and are adjusting like champs to all of this newness. I'm so proud of them!
When I picked Boston up from school he was all smiles. He liked music class best, got to play in the gym twice (it was rainy today), and said there was a girl who cried too loud so he couldn't hear the story! [He also said he copied he to try to get her to stop. Ooops...had to talk about that with him.] You know Liv wanted cake for her first day of school treat. What did Boston have? An ice cream cone! Why is that such a big deal? BECAUSE IT IS HIS FIRST ONE!!!!!!!! They now make g-free cones and they are quite tasty! He was running around so excited as I opened the box and just watched in awe as I put the ice cream in. It was so fun to see it through his eyes!
1-Instead of "upside down" he says "upsLide down." Too cute!
2-On the way to Liv's school yesterday we were in traffic for about 20 minutes because of a bad wreck on our turnpike. Bos started to get impatient and I said we needed to be thankful that we were ok and just be patient. He said, "Mom, while we are waiting we could pray for those people in the accident you know." We did. I love when I see Jesus in my kids!
