School Boys

Today was the 1st day of school. For Japheth the 1st day of 1st grade, and for Xander the 1st day of pre-school. They were both SO excited! Xander felt like such a big boy going to school like his brother. He loved picking out his backpack, that lights up by the way, and then after picking it out said "Now we need a lunch box!" And when we got home he wanted me to put the lunch box on top of the fridge right away since that's where Japheth's is. We signed Xander up for a program through the YMCA, but his class is in one of the rooms in the elementary, so for two days they both go to the same school. Which I think helps Xander feel more brave about going. It also happens to be an all day pre-school, which is sad that they're both gone for 2 days, but nice that I drop both off and pick up at the same time and the same place. I think though that Xander and I both need it to be this way to ease us in for next year when he starts Kindergarten.

Japheth has been talking about being a 1st grader since the last couple of weeks of Kindergarten. He was excited to get the teacher he wanted, and he has a few friends from his class last year in his class this year. He was excited to show Xander the ropes when we went to their open houses. He's also pretty proud of his newest development (besides being a 1st grader) his 1st tooth falling out. He shows everyone everywhere we go that he is missing a tooth!
When I grow up I'm going to be a Bey Blader OR a Doctor OR a Fight fighter (in that order) 
Neither really needed any clothes this year (well maybe a pair of pants or two for Japheth) but of course they needed a new shirt for the 1st day of school. They both had fun shopping and choosing out their very own shirt. And they were just as excited to lay them out the night before.
And one day I'll even get all the crazy fun stuff we've done this year up on this here blog. But today is not that day.
