Here's a cute one of both boys. Lincoln wrapped his arm around Malcolm without any prompting from me. Don't ask me why he's wearing a jacket. It came off halfway to the bus stop of course.
Here's Malcolm in line to get on the bus. You can see the dad on the bus discussing which exact corner the bus will stop at. We were a little flummoxed this morning when it approached from the opposite direction that we were all used to, so clarification was necessary. If you look closely, you can see that Bob is wearing his sunglasses with the mirrors on the inside. The picture also amuses me because the girl behind M is in 5th grade and of the six kids in front of him, all but two are 4th and 5th grade. It's no wonder I just bought the child size 9 men's shoes. I bitch about it, but it also amuses me.
Here's Lincoln as we headed to his one hour first day. At least with the jacket on you couldn't tell that he had the straps tied around his waist. Oy.
And finally, here is Lincoln signing his name to the scavenger hunt list that we completed in his classroom. After this, his teacher did a little science experiment where she explained that the kids could choose to be a rock or a sponge. Then she demonstrated how information (in the form of water for visual purposes) slides off a rock. But a sponge! Well, a sponge soaks up the information and gets bigger and holds way more than you thought possible and isn't that exciting. Then each child got a baggie with their own rock and sponge so they can demonstrate the concept for us at home. It was so very cute.
To cap off the day, we went out and had ice cream with the neighbors. This was a bonus ice cream treat not to be confused with the ice cream treat we get after a certain kindergartner rides the bus for the first time. Stay tuned tomorrow for that.
