"Medary 1st Grade..."

Like I said earlier, today was Ty's first day of 1st grade. He did great... and loved everything BUT recess. Seriously. He said recess is "too many kids, too crazy, and dangerous." Oh boy... he IS my child. Hailey and I had a quiet day at home (too quiet) and were so excited to pick up Ty at 3:22 (yes that is the time... it is strange, but I kind of love it.) Poor Ty was worn out by 7:00 tonight and was very emotional asking me if I could "please home-school him like Kari and Rylee" (because of the extreme craziness of recess...) I told him I didn't know how to be a teacher and he said "Kari will teach you! Or Kari could teach me!" Kari... any interest? Haha... jk. He will do just fine and figure out that recess is actually pretty dang fun.


And here comes the pictures... lots and lots of pictures ;)
(oh, and I had to throw a picture in of cute Hailey making her sandwich "ALL BY MYSELF!")

You're such a good mom.

I cried on Parly and Clayre's first day of school because they came home and woke me from my nap.

Amy, Miles has similar feelings about recess and lunchtime. I think he feels alone and insignificant in such a big crowd. Lots more kids and bigger kids than his kindergarten experience. He started school last month (year-round) and had about a week of torturous (mostly for us) mornings because he didn't want to go. He REALLY didn't want to go. I'm just glad he's never heard of homeschool.

Oh, and Miles' dismissal is 2:56.

Awesome pictures. Ty's probably already got girls crushing on him.

Wowser, he looks like he's grown since you've been here. Also, where was the school fairy when I was in school, that's a way cute idea!

How long did you make him carry that sign around saying he is in 1st grade? Maybe he would like recess more if you let him put the sign down.

Amy said...

HA. HA. HA.

The sign is for picture purposes only.

It would probably be helpful for me to homeschool him, because after one day the other school would look pretty dang good (gross lunchroom and crazy playground included). I can hear it already, "Kari, I thought you would be a nice teacher. . ." Oh, wait a minute, I think I have heard that already, along with a great deal of huffing and eye rolling.:)

Oh he is just way too cute! And I love the School Fairy also. How fun...now you can play Santa, Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy and the School Fairy. Clever way to add more work. Just kidding. I love it. My children will experience that fairy also.

Oh Ame, he is so handsome! I can't belive he is in First Grade. Remember when we met in Muncie and they were literally BABIES!! I'm dying. Cort starts Kindergarten this coming Wednesday...we can't wait!
