I have a 2nd grader...


Aidan was so excited about starting 2nd grade after meeting his teacher the other night he couldn't wait for today to come.

He was up at 6:45 getting ready and changed shirts three times (not to get the right look mind you, but to get the right feel...he hates collared shirts and had picked one out for today but, decided it wasn't comfy enough).

He ate a quick breakfast and brushed his teeth and had his backpack on all ready to go out the door to meet the bus until we told him it was only 7:30.

Thankfully, we still had an hour left to take pictures and enjoy a little family time before we all went outside to meet the bus. Alayna was so excited she kept signing bus.


Alayna and I made sure we had freshly baked chocolate chip cookies for him when he got home. (Yes, Uncle Ed I can be just like June Cleaver at least one day a year for my children!) He was a great big brother and shared them with his sister.


Aidan had a great first day and was a star student. He loves his teacher, met a few new kids that have just moved into the school district and enjoyed being the caboose at the end of the class line up allowing him to close the door and turn off the lights!

I absolutely LOVE the wide eyed excitement and wonder on these kids faces,when they start a new school year.I just wish we could bottle that stuff and remind them of it when high school begins!

Wow, it's hard to believe he's just in second grade, he looks so grown up and seems so mature. Glad he gets so excited for school :)

I just had to take the time to write a comment. Lately I have been having to do the quick view of most of my blog friends without time to leave messages and I hate that!! But just know you are thought of regularly!! I truly love the picture of Aidan and Alayna as he gets ready to go to school. There just seems to be so much love between them. It's one of the good things about the age difference. I hope you and Alayna get to really enjoy your solo time together. That is my favorite with Ella (although we are getting a little too much of that with all of our time in the hospital!!)
