A bit late...last week Carter excitedly left for Grade 2. I don't think he slept the night before as he was just so excited and anxious to get to school. I of course took him as his back pack was so jammed with supplies it was more than half his size and definitely weighed more than him! Do you remember what the first day of school is like? The excitement of finding out who your teacher would be and who would be in your class was nearly overwhelming!
Our conversation on the way to school:
Carter: Mom, is there anything more exciting than Grade 2?
Me: Certainly not today sweetie.
