School is Fun

In Nolan's words, this is how his first day went:

"I sat on the rug. There was a story about doggies in the school. We sang Twinkle Twinkle Star. We didn't get to play outside. R----* is in my class! I played with the space toy."

It was a great day, and his teacher even called from home later in the afternoon to ask a few questions and to see how his day had gone. Did I mention how awesome Nolan's teacher is? She is beyond amazing. Nolan did have some stomach pain today, but sat on the rug and got through it.

Matthew also started school today. My big boy is in Kindergarten. Next week he will begin attending school from 8:45am - 3:15pm (he will board the bus at 8:15am and won't be home until 4:00pm). He's going to be a little tired while adjusting to the longer schedule.

And my little guy, who couldn't speak until he was three, was full of words about his day:

"We got to sit on the floor and listen to two stories, then we went to see the specials. We got to see the gym, but we weren't allowed to go in because the door was shut. We also got to see the art room, and it is right next door to our classroom! And then we got to see the music room and the cafeteria! They called it a TOUR! And, Mom? We got to play. Not outside or in the big room, but we got to play. And I saw K---* standing in a straight line. And then we got on the bus and A-----* was on the bus and now I'm home!"

Both boys are absolutely exhausted and fast asleep. Tomorrow is another half-day for Matt, which is good because he is really tired! He was also running 100.7 tonight... I'm hoping that is from being so tired and not from an impending virus!
