School Days: First Days of PK4 {Rory} and 2nd Grade {Riley}

School is officially back in session. Kenny and I met the boys’ teachers and saw their classrooms last Tuesday night. Riley got Ms. Paulin, who he had for readiness camp, and he was so excited. And his desk is right where he wanted it to be: directly in front of Ms. Paulin’s desk.

Riley will have Ms. Cobb too, for ELA, spelling, and handwriting, but his homeroom teacher is Ms. Paulin. Claire is unfortunately in Ms. Cobb’s homeroom. But the younger boys are together: Rory and Colin both have Mrs. Sue and Ms. Megan. It’s gonna be a good year!

Rory’s first day was last Thursday. He went for an hour and a half in the morning, from 9-10:30. He had no issues putting his uniform on or taking first day pictures for me.

But I still fully expected him to cry, especially since Riley didn’t have to go that day. But he did SO great. I was so proud of him. Mrs. Sue pinned his nametag on him, he gave her her cookies, we found his desk, and I showed him the trucks that I spied on Tuesday night. He was all smiles!

Riley and I hung out in the cafeteria getting to know some of the new parents while we waited for Rory to be done. Then we walked back to his classroom to pick him up and head home. Day one, done!

We celebrated surviving the first day by going to jump at Sky Zone for an hour and then having lunch at Chick-Fil-A. So fun!

The next day was Riley’s turn. He went to second grade for the first time for half a day.

Rory and I walked him in, me crossing my fingers the whole time that this would finally be the year he didn’t cry. And it was. He did wonderfully.

Sometime that morning I got this picture from Ms. Paulin of Riley and Cole being silly. So glad he had a smile on his face all day.

The real test was when they both went for their first full day, on Monday of this week. But they were happy that morning (even though we had to wake both of them up), did everything they needed to do at home without any issues, took one more first day picture for me, and loaded up into the car easily. I breathed a huge sigh of relief and crossed my fingers that the good vibes would continue.

My sweet boys. I’m so proud of you. You’re going to absolutely rock PK4 and 2nd grade, and I can’t wait to see how much you grow this year. Love you both!
