Molly, Abbie and Graham. As you can tell from the girls still being in their PJ's I wasn't planning on taking a picture of all of the kids but the girls actually asked to take a picture with Graham, which I thought was so sweet.
Marty told me that when Graham was walking into class (from car line) the coach saw him and said "Graham, you look different!" Graham looked at the coach and said "Yeah, because I'm a First Grader now!" Ya, of course that's why! - or it could be Graham's long hair, maybe.
Then after school when Graham was telling me about his day, he told me "mom, I saw how small the kids where in Ms. Sumrall's class (his kindergarten teacher) and I have grown a lot." I guess now Graham's a big 1st grader!
After school we celebrated the first day by letting Graham choose where he wanted to get a snack from - he chose ice cream, of course. So the girls made messes with there cotton candy ice cream (way to sweet in my book) and Graham loved his cake batter ice cream (actually really good).
Graham wasn't up for many pictures, but I got a little smile from him.
I wanted proof that I was there. I am rarely in pictures, so I decided to take it myself with my phone. Didn't even think of having Graham take the pic for me until just now!
Abbie being crazy with her ice cream. You can kind of tell that immediately after this picture big drips of ice cream came out onto her skirt and the floor - maybe not such a good idea to encourage by taking a picture.
I am so excited for all my sweet boy will be learning this year. I know it will be much more work then last year was but the fact that he really does enjoy learning makes it so much fun!
