Today was Luke's first day of first grade with Mrs Jones at Walton!!! It was also his first day to ride the bus! He was pretty excited! Last night we went to meet the teacher night at school and then out to supper at Wendy's and then on the way home we stopped at Chisholm where the bus will pick him up and drop him off each day so that he could see where everything was before hand. Then this morning we were there plenty early and he got to get on the bus with his best friend Jack. Unfortunately Jack is not in the same class but they can sit together on the bus and play together at recess etc so Luke was OK with it after we talked about it. He and Jack both seemed really pumped to get on the bus. While they were waiting one of the bigger kids asked who his teacher was. When we told her she said, "Mrs Jones ROCKS!" This pic is from after school when we went to pick him up. When Aaron, Sarah and I drove into the parking lot Aaron said, "Yets go get my Yukey! (L's sound like Y's) (-:
Luke had a LOT to say about his first day. He had a blast and got to play with Jack some. He also loved science and learned about water and fire and kept telling me all the cool things they found out about water and fire. Sounds like his first year is off to a great start.
Sarah adores her brothers and Aaron did a lot of playing with Sarah today since Luke was at school. He was pretty proud of himself and when we got in the car after taking these pics he said, "I making Sarah happy, Mommy!"
