Back to School!

I just dropped our boy off for his first day of school. First grade! Hard to believe, but this year I think it was harder than last! Everything just seemed so much bigger, with less guidance for parents about what would be going on each day and, as Malachi said, there weren't any toys and they'll have to work all day. Ha! No toys and no snacks...I hope he can survive!
His teacher's name is Mrs. Proehl. We met her last night at open house and she seems very nice. I've heard great things about her, including that she enjoys doing lots of hands-on experiments and she's known to push the high achievers. Malachi was disappointed that his best friend, Carson, will not be in his class this year, but as we walked into the school today we passed Carson and he told Malachi that he couldn't wait to play together at recess.
Overall Malachi was very excited this morning - he even got up by himself using his new alarm clock! Now I just have to figure out how to make Elliott understand that school's started so he'll stop asking where Malachi is every five minutes!
