First Day of 2nd Grade

Yesterday was Tucker's first day of second grade so the night before we had a little lesson about how to act at school.  It covered things like making good friends, choosing the right even when others don't, and trying your best.  Then we finished it out with a blessing and game of hide and seek in the dark.  It was really nice and I think it helped him feel comfortable.  He wasn't very nervous.

This morning Bob got donuts and helped get everyone ready for school.  It was so nice and just one more way to make it a special day.

It's hard to imagine that one day this shirt won't be gigantic on him.
Here are his new shoes.  I didn't realize there was a size 13 so he went from 12 to 1.  These are the 1s and they are a bit big.  Oh well, he can grow into them.
Recognize the backpack?  I did a review of it a while back and Tucker is finally big enough for it.

Here we are walking to school.  Bob took the picture.  This is pretty much what it will be like every day after/before school.  Well, we will probably drive most mornings and I take turns with my neighbor so every day I will be either driving him in the morning or walking to pick him up after school.  Notice all the cars lined up on the right? We live so close people park at the end of our street to take their kids.
When I picked up Tucker after school he only had good things to say about it.  He was a little grumpy because I wouldn't let him read while walking home.  But once he got over it he kept telling me about how he has the best teacher in the the whole world an how she is soooooo nice.  And when I asked him to tell me one bad thing he couldn't think of one!  I'm glad it went well for him and hope it continues throughout the year.
