Well, the inevitable happened...school started. I'm still in denial, but maybe posting the event will make it more of a reality?!
Ethan started 1st grade on Monday of this week, and he was SO excited. He was up at 6:15 ready to go. He requested homemade cinnamon donuts for breakfast, an everything bagel with cream cheese for lunch, and cinnamon crunch cereal for his snack. The kid knows what he likes!
I was a little curious how the first day would go with his 2 best friends having moved this summer, but it was so encouraging to see him walk up and talk to kids that were new in his class. By the end of the day, he'd become buds with a new boy that shares his love of super heros. Thank you, Lord!
The highlight of his day was recess, naturally. He said Mrs Temple was "super fun" and "all smiles", so it was going to be a good year. I am so thankful for Providence and what a blessing it's been to our family. It was easy leaving Ethan there knowing that he was being loved on and taught well. And that I would get him back the next day!
