Back to school

The alarm clock went off at 6:45 a.m. this morning. I went downstairs to feed the dog and start making the coffee.

Soon after came Nolan, all dressed and ready for the first day of school.

After breakfast he was ready to gear-up and head out for the bus. He had his backpack and another bag full of back-to-school supplies he needed to bring in on the first day.

His backpack looks pretty cool. When we went camping over the summer, he completed a book full of puzzles and quizzes about the environment. That earned him a “junior naturalist” patch, which Kris sewed onto his backpack. It looks really good.

He didn’t want a big fuss at the bus stop. I insisted on one picture, but I promised not to take one of him getting on the bus.

He’ll be getting home in a couple of hours and I can’t wait to hear from him—especially about his first experience with lunch in the cafeteria!

Tomorrow it will be Thomas’ turn…
