Let me start by saying, I am not ready for summer to be over.
Today is Ethan's first day of second grade. I can't believe it.
He picked out his hair colors and style and decided on his hockey camp garb to wear. The awesome new backpack is a gift from Jaymee. He loves it! The face in this picture is courtesy Uncle Crash. Ethan thinks it's funny to have his tongue out in every picture now.
Man I love this kid.
We had a good morning. Ethan bolted out of bed when I woke him up. He was very excited to get his day started. Elliott was pretty bummed that he wasn't going to school today, but he was happy to get to help "Bubs" carry his stuff to the car. We snapped some pictures, then headed to the school. When we were pulling up I asked Ethan if he wanted me to drop him off at the door or walk in with him. He said he wanted me to come in (yay, he still needs me). We found his class, met his teacher (she remembered him and his hair from his field trip to meet her), of course she is young and fun and super cute and friendly (where were these teachers when I was in school?). He hung up his bag and we went outside so he could play before the bell rang. He felt much better by this point, and after hugs and kisses he headed to the playground. I know he is going to have another great year of school.
Just for fun.
Here is Ethan in 1st grade.
Now to share my tragedy.
Last year, we snapped this crappy picture on the way out the door, set the camera down and left, so we had to do his "first day of school" pictures on the second day of school.
This morning, I hurried the boys outside, snapped some pictures, put the camera away and off we went. When I got home, I loaded the pictures onto my computer and saw this.
I am so mad at myself. I have a preview screen on the camera, why didn't I look at the pictures when I took them? ARG! The camera was still set to take pictures by the campfire.
This is what happened when I tried to edit them.
Terrible. Absolutely terrible. So again, the "first day of school" pictures will be taken on the second day of school. Good thing he's only in 2nd grade. Maybe I can get it right before he graduates.
