First day of school - Second grade for Connor and VPK for Paige
This past Monday was the first day of school for both kids. Connor started second grade and Paige had her first official day of VPK (Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten).
As is our tradition, we got a couple pics with both kids before they left for the day. Mommy always does a great job getting them cute back to school clothes. Connor had a new backpack that was very bright and fluorescent.
Paige struck some cute poses before we left.
After I dropped Paige off at school, Andrea and I went down to the bus stop to wait for the bus with Connor.
The kids all got together for a cute group shot.
The bus came a little late and I kissed Connor goodbye. The bus driver pulled up the intersection, looked down at his paperwork and then pulled away. Andrea guessed that he was looking at the wrong street signs. Everyone freaked out and called everyone they could think of to get the bus driver to come back. I waited for a few more minutes and then kissed Connor again and went back home to work. Eventually the bus got there, but it was a long wait.
The first week went well for both kids. Paige was well behaved when we dropped her off at school, so she earned a Queen Elsa Frozen dress as a reward. Connor seems to really enjoy his teacher and he's already got some good friends in the class and comes home in a great mood every day.
We're happy to get the new school year off to a great start!
