Back to School {Linky}

The boys are heading back to school tomorrow. As parents we're so glad. The boys really like school, and do best with a routine. They had a Meet the Teacher Night last night. They both got the teachers they wanted.

Isaak is big about patterns. So far he's had the opposite teacher than what Mica's had every year. He got the same teacher Mica had in 3rd grade, but we convinced him that the pattern is still in place. That teacher got married, so she has a different last name then when Mica had her. Isaak has 3 great friends in his class.

Mica lost a few friends because one moved on to a magnet school, and another is going to a private school. I reminded him that this may happen. Thankfully he has a few good friends in his 5th grade class. It's his last year at his elementary school. It sucks to grow up at times. Mica said, "I feel like Kevin from The Wonder Years when Winnie went to a different school, and Paul went to a prep school." I feel for him. There's always more room for friends.

The boys look like they are giants. They are in this stage where they are not picture friendly. We brought all their loot on Meet the Teacher night. It was less stuff to worry about taking to school on the first day. Mica donated gel pens, and Isaak donated markers to the whole class.

Mica started what seem like a full time job: Safety Patrol. It's not like when I was a kid: Everyone took turns. Nope! He has to man this post before and after school. I was a little worried about task considering that Isaak would need to be there at a later time. No worries though. Mica's teacher said that Isaak can hang out in the lobby. He will be a teacher's helper, or just have a chance to read before breakfast.

I think the sun was in Mica's eyes when I took this photo.

Wow! Back to school already? My boys go back on the 29th I believe. That's nice of you guys to donate those supplies to the classroom. I hope the boys have a great school year!

We still have 2 and a half weeks before school starts up. Soaking up the last of summer :)
Safety Patrol is a big responsibility. You must be so proud!

They sure are growing. It's fun to follow a blog for years and see the changes in the kids. Then again, my post this week shows kid changes, too. I hope they have a wonderful first day. We've been in school for a week and a half.

We start back tomorrow too. I am so sad the summer is over! I hope the boys have a successful year! And yay for safety patrol. What a great opportunity :)

They both look quiet in the photos. Not the playful boys I usually see in your wordless wednesday posts. They really are growing up and its so amazing for me as I am a mother of a boy too. I hope Mica will find new friends. Its so heartbreaking to see our kids go through changes like this.

My kids go back next week. Their meet the teacher is on Tuesday afternoon, the day before the first day of school. It sounds like your boys are going to have a fantastic school year. Thanks for linking up for Wordless Wednesday!

Safety patrol = awesome
Did he ask to join or do they make them? Is it all year or for a short time?

Hope they both have a great year!!!
