First day of 1st Grade

It’s hard to believe that we are already at the end of July, which means the beginning of school at our house!

He’s all set – ready to take on first grade!
Anthony attends a year-round school that follows a 45/15 calendar.  Basically this means that he will be in school for 45 days, then they take a 15 day break, then 45 days of school, then break, etc.  His summer vacation is about 6 weeks, which really is long enough for a 6-year-old.  His 3 week breaks will be in October, Dec/Jan (over the holidays) and March/April (over Spring Break).  Maybe this year we can squeeze in a trip during one of his breaks from school?

We played some frisbee while we waited for the bus.

Rockin’ his new shoes – he says they are FAST!  So fast that he had to challenge us
both to a few running races this morning.  Not gonna lie, they are fast!

I asked him to turn and wave as he got on the bus - He managed to throw an
arm back and wave as he ran to the bus.  That was the best he gave me,
and I didn’t even get a picture of it…

Getting off the bus at school (Yes, I am THAT Mom).  I’m pretty sure he was the last one on the bus - I took a shortcut to beat the bus and park so I could get these pictures!

Perfect!  He has a friend on the bus!
