WW: Second Week of School {Linky}

I wasn't worried about Mica starting second grade. I knew he'd love it. He has enjoyed it; regardless if many of his friends are in the other class. He's happy to be able to play with them at recess. I told him that when he's in the classroom, that's where his ears need to be turned on anyhow. Since he just turned eight, he got to take treats to school on the second day.


Isaak on the other hand started out wanting to be 4 again; he longed to go back to preschool. Isaak's now on week 2 of school. He's loving it. In fact when I went to pick the boys up on Thursday and Friday Isaak cried because he was A) Tired and B) Didn't want to leave to come home.

Funny things Isaak's said: 

Isaak said on the first day he had an awful day with a smile on his face. He dropped a penny he found at recess in a crack, and was unable to retrieve it. Then he dropped one of his chocolate covered berries on the ground at lunch time. But...he had all good things to say about class. He was snapping all evening to. Yet another sign of happiness. He's really into snapping once again. I say that because he learned how to snap last year. Snapping is making its comeback.


He said in the car, "Mom I knew I had EP today, but I didn't know I'd actually have to do it." I was thinking, What in the heck is EP? Mica piped in and said, "You mean P.E.!" Isaak said, "Ya that!" That gave Mica and I a good chuckle.


Isaak's bummed that art is only once a week. He said, "Mom I'm sad about that!" I said, "Ya that's too bad I like art to."


I asked Isaak if he has any friends yet? He said, "Ya, but I don't know their names. One has white teeth and the other one has gold teeth." My Kindergartener is profiling people by their teeth color.


Have kids started back at school in the area where you live?

Kids started back school here in Lexington last Wednesday and it's been insanely busy in town ever since during the afternoon times. I work in higher ed and our college classes started back yesterday. Been crazy times here :)

Those are nice pictures, and they look so grown! LOL on the tooth profiling. :)

The Mommy said...

I SOO miss those kinds of convos with my kids.

Renae of Simple Sequins said...

I love how your humor is based upon your kids cuteness. My Mom did that. She was always telling family/relatives the cute things we said and how much she thought it was fun. That's cool about ya.

Joyce Lansky said...

Such handsome young men. I hope they have a wonderful school year.

Isaak has such a great smile! And lol about him profiling people based on their teeth. They do say a smile is the first thing one notices. Maybe that's why he's remembering teeth colors!

Mary said...

How cute! I had a son who used to identify friends by what color shirt they wore! Glad they like their classes!

Veronica Lee said...

They are such handsome boys! Mine started school on Monday after our 1 week 3rd term break.

Happy WW,A!

Liz said...

Ha! The teeth color thing is hilarious! Your kids endlessly amuse me.

Deborah Coombs said...

School starts in June here in the Philippines, and we're pretty much done with the first quarter of the school year. :)

Masshole Mommy said...

I absolutely love the devilish look on Isaak's face. My little man gets the same look!!

Erika Price said...

I'd be bummed too about art only being once a week :)

Mrsteeh said...

Ha! Snapping! I thought it was only my Girlie...she loves to snap. PS-> I love his shirt! :)

The kids started back here just this week... My Grandkids start college next week.

Isaak is so funny. There used to be a show on TV Called Kids say the darndest things... or funniest things. Not sure which the name was. You are way to young to remember it.

Jessica Fiorillo said...

Kids say the darndest things. He looks pretty happy to me!
I can barely snap, good for him!
