Today was the last first day of school for both my boys at their elementary school.
Needless to say, I was a bit emotional.
Alex even made us wait in the car a few minutes before we got out this morning, out of fear one of his friends see him with the crying mom and find him un-cool. Its hard being the mom of boys sometimes. I saw a lot of friends who are moms of girls taking all these cute pictures of lots of girls all huddled up together, smiling away, and I'll admit it. The picture-loving mom in me was jealous. I tried to get Alex and his BFF, Brittan, to pose together in front of the school. No dice. This was as close as I got.
So. I have only Ryan's 1st day picture with Ms. Corbett to post.
We had her for Alex, and I was thrilled to get her for Ryan. She was a great teacher (and yes, I'm possibly biased that she was a lawyer at Legal Aid for fifteen years before giving up law to teach, a dream I entertain on an increasingly regular basis.) Here's to a great year, and just imagine the picture of Alex with his first male teacher, Mr. Ortiz.
