|Yup. That's Darth Vader on his t-shirt playing basketball.|
Here is Nick's first assignment from the first grade. It asks, "How do you feel on the first day of school?"
|Nick is sitting at his desk crying brown tears that are reminiscent of a moustache.|
Yup. He feels sad. I can't say that I blame him, though so far I think he is liking first grade just fine. Nick has recently made a few friends in the neighborhood, and he loves the freedom of riding his bike to play with them. I hope this didn't make the teacher feel too bad, though I'm sure she's heard it before. I wonder what it would look like if teachers had to fill out this paper and illustrate it. . . Perhaps our answers would be similar to Nick's? I would write simply, "I feel overheated." (My school has no air conditioning.)

Ahh, well. Nick had a great first couple of days, no matter how sad he said he was--summer has to end sometime. I know that Nick wanted it to last longer, though. He is still wearing his Great Wolf Lodge bracelet from our trip in July!
|Nick looks like such a big kid in this picture.|
Happy beginning of the school year!
