Well these are the last few hours of the big countdown. For the past few weeks we’ve been preparing for this point and now it’s finally here; tomorrow is the first day of the school year. Christian couldn’t be happier; he’s asked to wear his backpack everyday for the last 2 weeks. Tonight it sits on the edge of the couch waiting for him to pick it up in the morning. We sharpened pencils last night and got everything put away.
There is one rather sizeable surprise….I’ve got the first day of school jitters. I haven’t the slightest idea why. He’s been at this school for awhile and we know his teachers, so I don’t know what this feeling is all about. I think it’s all the anticipation. We’re looking forward to seeing his teachers and meeting his new classmates. Hello 2014/15 school year!
The back to school shopping adventure is already showing it’s rewards! Christian’s so excited about his new back pack and lunch bag that he’s already asking to go to school. Today he put his new lunch bag on the handle of his scooter and road around with it while we ran our errands. It’s always nice to see that they’re excited about things that are outside of there normal focus zone, which for Christian is DVDs. Hooray for growth!
We did it! Christian and I started back to school shopping today. We started the trek to school supply supremacy at Walmart, where there was aisles and aisles of options. The first stop was the back pack section. It took Christian all of 4 seconds to choose a Super Mario Brothers back pack, which turned out to be the on school supply he was excited to get. Everything else I had to knag him into selecting. You know… which folder do you want, which lunch bag do you like the best? However, I am still stamping part 1 of the 4G back to school shopping a success! Part 2 will be shopping for clothes and shoes. Let the good times roll!
