One Week til School Starts!

Isaac's first day will be next Wednesday. He is so excited (as am I!). Last night we were able to go to his school orientation and meet his teacher, Mrs. Christian. Isaac's really excited because she seems super nice. She's young too so I think she'll be able to handle all his energy pretty well. There are only 15 kids in Isaac's class which is a change from the 24 kids in his preschool class. Hopefully that means more one on one time with the teacher. As all the kids sat in their little chairs last night listening to their teacher, Doug and I looked around and laughed as we noticed Isaac was the giant of the classroom. There were even a few kids that actually looked half the size of Isaac. It made me question if we made the right decision putting him in E5 instead of Kindergarden. But Doug reminded me that he'll more then likely never get bullied because he's so much bigger and he'll more then likley be ahead of the class. So I guess we will see how the school year goes.

Isaac is especially excited that he gets to ride the bus to school. He was able to meet his bus driver last night and sit on the bus as well. He was amazed at how big the bus was (much bigger then the ones he has ridden on before). Of course I'm nervous as a mom sending my first kid off to school on a bus- but it's reassuring knowing the school is right around the corner and he won't be on the bus very long. Only 7 days to go....

Yeah! The count down is on. E5 will be fun for him and I'm sure all those kids will catch up to him when they are older. I'm sure he will just love it!
