The First Grader

Well it's over. the first official year of school! He is now a first grader, who by the way looks absolutely terrified in this photo. it was the best shot i could get....ha ha. his phobia of the flash still exists and i am lucky if i get a shot with his eyes open.
last night was so much fun. they sang songs to us and then they got to walk across the stage when their name was called and they received the magic first grade wand tap on the head! I love that the teacher asks each child what their career aspirations are and then reads them to the crowd of teary eyed parents. Noah's - to be a daddy! ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. but then he told me later that he really wanted to be a teacher or the principal (so that he could own the school)! ha ha.
afterwards we headed to DQ for some celebratory ice cream and gifts! a nerf dart tag gun and indiana jones legos! what more could a boy want. Congratulations little one! you did it.
