First Day of School

In hot, humid Houston our first-day-of-school photo is a little fuzzy because the humidity got to the camera lens! I woke Ace up and started singing "I'm so excited, and I just can't hide it" which he wanted to sing all the way to school!
He indulged me with a photo in the hallway. When we got out of the car he wanted to know if I and Lily Kate were going to stay in class with him. I was scared to tell him no but he didn't seem to mind. Phew!
His little backpack is even bigger than he is!
Here's the play-by-play of him going into his classroom...
"Peeking" in to see Mrs. Maywald.
The teacher asked him to get his little lunchbox out.
He put his lunchbox in the designated basket.
Then he put his backpack on the table.
Then he found his name on a little monkey and picked out his cubby.
After he stuck his name on his cubby, Mrs. Maywald said he could go play and he said, "Thank you" and went straight over to all of the plastic animals he played with at his classroom visit last week. He didn't even tell me goodbye. I swallowed the lump in my throat and snuggled Lily Kate all the way back to the car.
Can't WAIT to hear how it goes!!!

swallowed the lump?! I was almost in tears reading about you dropping him off...I would have been crying like a baby.
