Fabulous Firsts

First of all, I must admit I am extremely tired and should not be blogging for fear of not making any sense. But I must keep up with my blogging friends Mindee and Tracy who also blogged about the first day of school, so here it goes...

Today was a day of some fabulous and fantastic firsts. Tyler entered 7th grade at a brand new middle school called Schoo School. For those of you who don't live here, it rhymes with "toe" and is named after a former superintendent of our school district. I think it's a rather clever name, but others might think it's a typo, so yes, it's called Schoo School.
This above picture was taken at Open House on Monday and was told...."Take it quick, if you want a picture". It's not cool to take pictures of middle schoolers! Notice the building isn't quite finished yet. You can still see the insulation on the bottom side of the overhang. At least the rest of building appears to be mostly done and what is done looks fabulous (note: blog title).
Tyler got his first locker (another fabulous thing). He did not have a locker last year at Goodrich and someone stole his report card. I did believe that was a legitimate claim since he had good grades and I got a duplicate, which proved to be what he said it was. Hmmm...why would someone take a report card? I wouldn't think you could fake that, but then again I've seen what can be done with a plagiarized driver's license.

This morning I was very concerned about Tyler remembering his locker combination for his first day and Tyler rest assured me by saying..."Mom, it's Peyton Manning, Joe Ganz and Herbie Husker." I didn't understand his reasoning at first, but he was meaning he memorized his locker combination by football players' jersey numbers. Clever thinking, Tyler!

The biggest fabulous firsts were of course, seeing my eighteen fantastic kindergarteners!

I witnessed a.....first cry, a first teary eyed mom, a first raised hand, a first smile, a first line (that was indeed fabulous looking) and a first dismissal. Oh, what a wonderful, fabulous start to the school year. I'll blog more later, but it's time for bed and another fabulous school day tomorrow!

I really like how clever your son is with his locker combo memorization technique. Gotta love it! But, then again, just gotta love that kid! He's a gem. Madison looked so cute in her outfit today. So stylin!

LOL about Tyler making you take the picture quick. Connor died that I took the picture of him in front of the bus with his friends watching. Jameson wasn't too upset since he was fairly early getting to school. They're just luck I don't go in and take a photo with their teacher anymore. I had to give that up in 5th grade.

Glad you had a good first day!

Glad to hear you had a great first day! I also love Tyler's way to remember his locker combination, too funny. And yes, middle schoolers 'borrow' the silliest stuff including your son's report card. It gets worst in high school.

All of you posting first day pictures are so on the ball! I was just happy to have them all dressed and out the door on time.
