Lewis & Clark Elementary — "blazing a trail of discovery."
These two pictures are actually from Back-To-School Night (two days earlier) when we met Jack's teacher, Mrs. Benner, for the first time and took his school supplies.
Despite the rain that morning, Jack was ready to have a thumbs-up day. Loaded down with his backpack, lunch, umbrella and nametag around his neck, he was ready and rarin' to go.
Waitin' for the school bus.
Brody, our next-door neighbor, started kindergarten too; they shared a seat together on the way to school. Awwwww....
Besides being the first day of school, Jack was most excited about getting to ride the school bus by himself. In fact, when we asked him that afternoon what his favorite part of the day was, he said "The bus."
And away we go!
