With all of the craziness that the first weeks of school brings, HJ and I have been finally getting into a routine.
And…I officially have a 1st grader.
I can’t believe it.
He is loving 1st grade, even though it isn’t quite as fun as kindergarten. He has started flag football, he likes everything about it except for the stretching (who has time for that?!?). He still wants to be a vet and an animal trainer, going on 3 years now! We fought about getting a haircut, and finally last weekend he agreed to getting his bangs cut so he could see. I only had to bribe him with 6 Pokemon cards, a stop at his favorite ice cream shop and letting him stay the night in my bed. Totally worth it.
He loves to watch EvanTube, play minecraft and run around outside with the neighbor kids. Yesterday, I told him I signed him up for Lego club tomorrow morning and you would have thought I told him we were going to Disney World.
He already decided what he wants for his birthday in November…2 guinea pigs. And I already told him he should think of something less stinky, and less work. He is pretty adamant about what Santa should bring this year. Good luck on finding a jet pack, Santa.
Every day I am amazed at how caring, silly and sweet he is. But I also love his feisty streak. I can’t believe I have a 1st grader, time goes by so fast when you’re having fun!
