First day at school

Well it was Ethan's first day at school today and he was up bright and earlier ready to go. It took us quite a while to get everything sorted and make sure we had everything he needed for his first day. He looked so smart in his uniform and couldn't stop looking at himself in the mirror to see what he looked like. He also insisted on carrying his PE bag, reading bag and lunch box and not sure that'll last past today! When the bell went we went to his class with him and he put his PE and reading bags on his peg and lunch box on the shelf. He then went straight into his class and sat down with a big smile on his face looking forward to his first day. Here are some photos of Ethan this morning, wearing his school t-shirt, with his school jumper on and all his things and in the playground waiting to go into class.

After taking Ethan to school me and John went over to a friends to see her and her new baby boy. It was great to see her as it has been a while since we last saw her. After that we went and had some lunch before it was time to pick Ethan up.

We then went to pick Ethan up and he was very excited when he saw us through the window and looked as though he had a great day. When he came out we asked him if he had a nice day and what he'd been up to. As you can imagine we didn't get too much information out of him but he did say he had TWO playtimes :) He'd also done painting as it was all over his new school jumper, will need to get used to that and missing jumpers etc.

I went to Ikea on Sunday with Ethan to get some storage bits for his bedroom which we really needed with all the extra school stuff he now has. We got some dividers for his drawers and also some great little round storage bins that must be new as I haven't seen them before.

Here is the layout I did the other weekend of Ethan in Mt Laguna, San Diego playing in the snow for the first time. Used Bazzill cardstock, Heidi Swapp silhouette snowflake stickers and chipboard letters and white Sakura gelly roll pen.

Oh he looks so sweet ... love the pic of him in the playground. Love that layout too ... those Heidi Swapp snowflakes are really effective.
