Flashback: The new Kindergartener on his first day of school, September '08.
Flashback : The new Second Grader on his first day of school, September '08.
Now: The new First Grader and the new Third grader, June '09!
Not the way one hopes to spend their time after the last day of school.
It shows in Colton's eyes how poorly he felt the last day of school last Friday, in the picture his dad took before the boys left for school. Of course I am only really seeing that now. He made it through the morning of his last day of Kindergarten and came home near tears. His tummy hurt. Within a few minutes he was running for the bathroom. After giving up the contents of his stomach he was down for the count the rest of the afternoon.
Nolan didn't fare much better. He called me from school about the time he was supposed to be getting off the bus. I heard the pain and sadness in his voice. He had lost his Spud hockey sweathirt, with his name and number screened on the back of it. And while he was looking for it, he missed the bus. His classmate's mom gave him a ride home. He curled up on my lap for the longest time and hardly moved watching the tv along with Colton. He admitted to me later that he felt sad about leaving his classmates and teacher for the last time.
And on that note, we limped our way into our summer vacation.
