Things never slow down here in the Fisher family. After a wonderful long weekend in Las Vegas (more to come in future posts) we came back late Sunday afternoon, unpacked and got everything ready for Jacob’s first day of real school.
He will still be attending preschool for before and after school care, so the first new thing was taking the bus from pre-school to his new school. I rode the bus with him because I wanted to observe the process and his Dad met us there.
Lining up to board the bus:
These boys had a great time cutting up on the short bus ride. Jacob’s school is the second stop, so his ride is about 10 minutes.
I love it that, at this age, he didn’t think it was uncool to have his mommy on the bus with him!
Disembarking the bus, ready to head into the big new school (new in every sense of the word - new for him and a brand spanking new school)
I don’t want to post details of the school or his teachers on the internet but lets just say that one look around the door and classroom and you could tell she is a scrap booker! The classroom was really well set up and the kids were already exploring.
Checking out the books on his table.
Once he was settled we had a quick hug and kiss and then left him, and no – there were no tears!
Then Will and I headed to the cafeteria to load Jacob’s account up with lunch money, boy have things changed since the days when I went to school! The kids have a number they put into a machine and it just charges based on what they have on the tray. Pretty neat.
Jacob came home pretty wiped out, he is used to taking a two hour nap, but he was all smiles!
