First Day of School

We survived our totally un-planned, no-structured, free-for-all summer. NEVER again. My son needs some structure in his life. But it was fun while it lasted.  Angry Kid was anxious for school to start, and so was I.  Yesterday, we had our first soccer practice also, which was quite entertaining to say the least.  Soccer is PERFECT for Angry Kid, he was all red and sweaty after he was done. Totally worth the money.

We pulled up to the school yesterday, and I jumped out of the car to check the teacher and class list. Angry Kid stayed in the car with my husband. I think I cared more about the teacher and classmates than he did. I came back a few minutes later, as I snapped an iPhone photo of the class list. I only knew a few of the kids in his class this year. But really, in practicality, it is probably better for Angry Kid as he will be less distracted.

So here he is, my new First Grader. And really, it kinda looks like a mug shot, doesn’t it?

First Day of First GradeHere are some photo highlights of our morning:

Kindergarten and First GradeReally, the best part of all of this? FULL DAY SCHOOL. Angry Kid was in half day kindergarten. Do you know how fast those three hours fly by? Like super fast!

I know exactly how fast 3 hours go by...preschool was 3 hours, kinder was 3 hours and 20 minutes. NOT ENOUGH TIME. Did you also know that all kinder in CA is now full day? Of course it's the year AFTER our kids get out of that grade. LOL Angry Kid has beautiful eyes. And what a huge difference from Kinder to 1st grade! I never thought of having Ro hold a paper saying what year it was and yeah, it does kind of look like a mug shot. I can't believe you all are still starting school when kids SHOULD start school. Ours started August 9th. Just weird. School is supposed to start after Labor Day and end in mid-June. Not August to May like the weirdos do out here.

OMG, he is the cuuuuutest thing ever, and that comparison shot, love it! Hope he has a great year in 1st grade. My oldest is in 1st grade this year and is already feeling way too old. Time just flies. Visiting from Mama Kat's.

Yep. We have two classes with early bird and late bird. Most of the schools in Orange County actually do 1/2 day still. I HATED that.
