A Multitude of Last Minute Fun
Ethan tried to take over as tour guide - starting at the sharks and the aquarium. He was thrilled to have someone new to show around.
It did take Lucas a bit. He was cautious and made Ethan hold his hand.
And that my friends was the official end of summer.
Back to school and all the craziness that entails... Luckily Ethan didn't start with me. Kindergarten starts a couple of days later so that the teachers can do family visits. Brian and Ethan went to his yesterday and filled out all sorts of paperwork. On one form that the kids were supposed to give answers for it asked "What is the best way to get reach your parents?" Ethan answered "Stretch."
Tomorrow he starts this brand new adventure called school. Part of me is shocked he's that old and a little bit sad. But another, bigger part of me is so excited. This is the closest he's ever been to me while I'm working. I'll get to peek in on him at lunch and see him right after school. We'll get to do homework together (which he claims to be super excited about - maybe because he gets to take it to and from school in his Cars2 folder?) and experience all that school-aged stuff that I love. A coworker is taking my kids for the first 15 minutes tomorrow so I get to go do the mom thing and take a million pictures. I can't wait.
