So...School Started

Isaak said to me the night before Kindergarten started, "Mom I'm not too excited for school to start, but maybe I should wear a tie, or something nice since it is the first day."

I helped him lay out a nice shirt, which later we found out it had something on the front, so we picked out a fun shirt.

Isaak made his own lunch (mostly). The only thing I did was help him get things out, and cut things up for him. Mica decided to risk not knowing what they were having, and went with hot lunch. He eats just about anything!

Bath time happened. It took Mica until he was 7 years old to fully take a bath on his own. Isaak said, "I'm going to do this on my own." He did! He washed up, rinsed off, dried off, put lotion on and hung up his towel all without being asked!

The morning of school Isaak said, "Maybe I should try tying my own shoes. I am going to be in Kindergarten." Little man is growing up.

Mica was excited for the first day of class. He picked out his own shirt. I have a new unwritten policy with him. He picks out his shirt, shows it to me, and I tell him what shorts or pants that go with it. If he picks out everything he's miss-matched. I don't want to be laying out his clothes all the time though.

We now have a 2nd grader and a Kindergartener in the house.

They have the exact same backpack. What Mica wants, Isaak wants. I picked up 2 iron on fabric patches. Mica's backpack has a Superman symbol, and Isaak's has a Spider-Man on it. Then I ironed them on, and sewed them on.

Did they like school?


Isaak said he had a horrible day. He said it with a smile on his face. He didn't really. He was fixated on the fact that he dropped a few of his chocolate covered berries on the floor (his dessert). He also found a coin at recess and proceeded to roll it around on the ground. It fell in a crack, so he couldn't retrieve it again. Isaak's the dramatic one in the group. If anything good that's little happens he's high on life, one little bad thing makes his whole day bad, and he doesn't know the difference between a joke and a lie. He'll fib about something with a smile on his face and say, "I was just kidding." He's just trying to test the humor waters.

Really Isaak had fun. He liked that they had technology class. There was a computer he could use; he played a matching game with upper and lower case letters.


Mica seems to like his teacher. He has a handful of new kids in his class. His teacher last year told us that Mica would be great with either teacher. I do wish more kids were in his class. I keep reminding him that it's good to make new friends to. He sees all his friends at recess. In the classroom it's all about learning anyhow. Mica's excited for the time where Isaak is comfortable enough to have Mica drop Isaak off to his classroom instead of Dad doing it.

Mica got to take birthday treats today. He thought some other kid may be taking treats. I just told him, "Then you can leave the box of treats there, and pass them out tomorrow." He took his birthday invites. It is a little challenging since most of his friends are in the other class. His best friend moved away, and his other good friend has parents that are divorced. I'm never sure where her invite ends up. We made two. I hope they get to her parents ok. His friend party is on the 24th and it's a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle one. He is invited to a skate party this weekend. Mica's never been skating before. It should be interesting. Dad is taking him. I'm getting the gift. I'm thinking hair things would be fun, since we don't know what toys she has. I may resort to a board game.

Your Isaak is a little devil just like my little guy LOL. Glad they both survived their first day!

So far so good, and they look very handsome!

Very smart to put the iron-on patches so the boys don't mix up their back packs. :)

I hear ya about having to lay out the clothes each day. I put my foot down and started making the girls do their own. I did it with my oldest until she was in 7th grade. Can you believe that!? I finally said, enough! Pick out your own or go naked. I don't care either way lol.

Glad the boys are off to a great start!

Didn't school start early this year or is it just me? Isaak will always want what Mica has... I used to do the same thing with my sister. Now, she wants what I have.
