We are ready to go! We had a great weekend camping (recap coming tomorrow) and now we are just getting prepared for the big day.
First up, a new backpack and sneakers! Yes, I know the sneakers look huge. Size 3!
We ordered a new lunch bag but it hasn't arrived yet. It looks like this. E's first day of school lunch will be pasta in his thermos, an apple, vegetables, and maybe a cookie!
We like walking to school when we can, but especially on the first day. I love the excitement of all of the kids gathering on the streets to walk through the neighbourhood. It will be nice to see E's friends and their parents. Grade 1 means a different door into the school and a different part of the playground to play on. They will have more responsibility for themselves than in the kindergarten classes; lunch is eaten in the lunch room, not the classroom, so I hope we can minimize our lost items!
E will go to the YMCA after school program so he can start getting into a routine, but we will still walk up to get him. I like this opportunity to hear about his day, something we could miss out on on the short car ride home.
One of E's favourite meals is macaroni and cheese, so I will make this one or this one.
I've decided to shift my part time days around this week so I don't have to go to the office tomorrow. It made more sense since I would have been late for work anyway (school starts at 9:00). I may just take Q to daycare and have a day to myself (kidding, I brought work home to do!).
E worked on his writing and reading this summer, and although he didn't make any great leaps and bounds, he has improved and hopefully he won't find the transition too difficult.
Happy First Day of Grade One to E! ✏️📚🖍🎨🏃🏻🤔😊ReplyDelete
