First day of school

Jacob started second grade last week. As we stood on the front porch snapping the annual "first day of school picture," I was overwhelmed by this feeling that we were JUST HERE taking pictures on his first day of kindergarten. So this seems like as good a time as any to run through the photo progression:

KINDERGARTEN:


FIRST GRADE:


SECOND GRADE:


My baby's growing up. *sniff* So far he's always been excited to start school, so the first day of school is fun for all of us. Second grade is going really well - Jacob already had to apply for a class job. He decided not to run for mayor -- too much responsibility -- and applied for two positions, librarian and lunchroom helper. After a competitive interview process, he got the lunchroom helper job. Responsibilities include "making sure the class is following the rules" and "checking to see that our table is not a huge mess." David and I submitted references on Jacob's behalf, emphasizing his lifelong interest in following everybody's rules except ours, as well as his disdain for huge messes. We think he'll do a fantastic job. We're proud of our boy.

Caden starts Kdgn one week from today. He is really excited. Mommy is having mixed emotions!

I love the idea of "applying" for the classroom job. Congrats on your new position, Jacob!

How cute!!! I can't believe he is in second grade. One thing I love about the progression is also the progression in clothes. You can tell that he probably wore what you wanted him to wear in the kindergarten one, then his personal style started kicking in!
