First Day of School

Today was it - the first full day of school. Conner is in the 3rd grade, and so excited to be back with all of his friends (and for the new shoes he got for the event) . So far he seems to really like his new teacher. He was so sweet with Jude today. He held his hand all the way from the time they stepped out of the door to when they got on the bus. The whole time he was telling Jude about how great school is, about all the cool things Jude will get to do, and how awesome his teacher is (Jude got Conner's kindergarten teacher - Mrs. Krull. Hooray! We LOVE her!). Booyah, Conner!
Jude is in KINDERGARTEN! I can't believe he is that old, but it's true. Here in Flossmoor we have full day kindergarten. I think the day was a little long for him, but overall he seemed to enjoy it. It certainly helps that the classroom theme is frogs!! He came home with a frog hat craft and a little book he made about green things. He's so cute about all of it, and so excited to show us everything he did. Good job, Jude!

Conner, cool shoes and way to be an awsome brother

Jude, I can't believe how grown up you look. Does your teacher know how much you love frogs?
