First Day of School

Evan and Sean start first grade today.  Sean is at a different school in our district where they have a special education program for his grade level.  I am so worried for him but he was in good spirits and was chatty with his new teacher.  I hope he likes it. He complained so much about school the last few months of Kindergarten.  Evan on the other hand was chomping at the bit to go back to school.  He wanted to see his friends.

Cub Scout Evan

Evan and I went on a hike with the Cub Scouts yesterday.  The scout season starts this week and oddly enough Evan is excited.  He really wants to hang out with the other boys and be social.  He insisted on wearing his uniform on this one hour hike!  (Of course it got hot and he had to take it off!)

Summertime Sadness

Steve and I did our best (well mostly Steve) to make the last week before school a fun one.  The kids went to the movies, the park, visit with Grandma, Six Flags (twice), the zoo and MSI.  Also they took their first Metra ride (commuter rail) to get to the city.  All in all, it was a tiring week but I think they had fun!
