And Then There Was None

Well, at least 2 out of 5 days of the week there will be none. Until after lunch. Then there will be one... until 2:30. Then there will be two again. Who can keep up??

First Day of Kindergarten

It's the first day of Kindergarten, and Finn is at least three inches taller than everyone in his class. This morning we had to make "three pancakes with bacon on the side and a scrambled egg on top", just like his favorite Little Critter book.

His buddy/hero, James, came by last week and gave Finn some special lucky charms for school. "Frank" is a Frankenstein Robot charm that Finn put on his backpack.

Eli starts a new preschool class two days a week. Open House is this morning.

Finn had to learn his student number and teacher's name.

In the car line, we had just enough time to drop him off and snap a picture before Finn pulled away and headed inside. He was so excited!

How time does fly...
