Yesterday was my son Ryder's first day of 2nd grade... He was super excited! More so to see all his friends.
Grandma and Momma took him to his open house on Tuesday evening to meet his teacher (Mrs. Wate). Geez I never knew how popular my boy was until we got to the school and all sorts of kids were saying "Hi Ryder" with big smiles on their faces. He got a spot right next to his good buddy Nolan, so we will see how that works out. His teacher was so very nice and she is the teacher he was hoping to get.
So yesterday morning, I got my little man up and at em, he took his shower, got his new geer on and ate some frosted flakes. After that he brushed his teeth and wanted his hair spiked in the front and flat in the back??? Okay for those of you who have never seen my son or my hair it doesn't work like that. So I told him hey how about I "spike" the whole top? He was good with that, so I used gel, which he does not need on his tight little short curls. But he was looking and feeling cool.
Then we were on our way, momma packed him a yummy first day of school lunch. He loves to ride the bus, but I gave him a ride instead. Thank goodness I did cause it for some odd reason took his bus that is suppose to pick him up at 8:05 almost 50mins to get to the school, that is 5mins away from Grandma and Papa's house.
He did get to ride the bus home and that was another ordeal. He was greeted by Momma, Dad, little sister , Grandma and Papa. I was of course camera ready! So he had a wonderful first day and loved his lunch!
I will always remember my 2nd grade year, my teacher was Mrs. Allen she was so pretty and sweet. Omg that was back in September 1988, I will always remember that school year... I won the young authors award that year and got to go to the big conference they have or use to? My book was called "All about babies". Of course at age 8 I only thought I knew all about babies, but I still won a award for it. See that was the year my mumsy was prego with my little brother, so I was not only excited my mom was having a baby, but even more excited I was finally getting a brother.
Sorry I am rambling, just thought I would share that story with you...
Do you remember your 2nd grade school year? or better yet what year it was?
