first grade....

This awesome kid started first grade today.
And there where tears...from me.
Colin was totally cool about the whole thing.
He was a little nervous. 
The only way I could tell was that he was very quiet and picking at his thumb nail.

This year he {we} are lucky because this super cool dude is in his class with him.
{note the thumb picking. Totally my fault, I will admit it}

Off he went to his future of all day school, packed lunches and more time away from me then with me during the day.
{cue: sobbing}

Once at his desk he found a bag of treasures his super cool teacher had left for him.
Teachers are so awesome.

6 hours and 40 min. later his school day was over and with camera in hand I was the first mamma waiting outside the classroom door.
Phew...Only more then I can count days to go.

Next stop, our new tradition {thanks to Aunt Sally for the awesome idea}.
Chocolate cream pie. yum, yum, yummy!

We all made it through the day and are ready for tomorrow....
such a great kid

I linked this post up over at mama kats

There should have been a cute picture here for their link ups but blogger wasn't cooperating
