Isaac's First Day of First Grade! August 13th!

The summer was just too short! Truly he only had 10 weeks of summer! It went by so fast. Isaac was very ready to go back, he loves school and was excited to see who was going to be in his class.

We learned on the 7th that Isaac's new teacher was going to be Ms. Jessica Doty. She is in her 3rd year of teaching and is full of great ideas! We love her already.

About the only thing we were less than happy about was that Isaac only has 3 kids from his Kindergarten class. I think I was more upset about it than he was, but then again, isn't that how it usually is, mom or dad upset, kid just rolls with the punches! He has already made some new friends and he does get to have recess with his old classmates, so he will still get to them from time to time.

Oh and he will have this teacher and these classmates for both 1st & 2nd grade. I was a little concerned about this at first, thinking that if we didn't get a good match with the teacher we would have problems, but knowing now who we have, I couldn't be more thrilled.

Isaac asked the other day when he gets a break from school again! It's started already! :) However, he also added that he didn't think First Grade was that hard! I told him he hasn't started to have homework yet, so he might change his mind. Our note says homework will start the week after Labor Day so we still have one more week before it really kicks in!
