First Day at a New School

What a brave kid! Actually, what a brave mom! I was way more nervous for him than he was today, but I guess that's what we do as moms. I just wanted him to fit in and find new friends. He pretty much hadn't even though about those things yet, he was just excited to go to school and start something new. I don't really know why I worry, he is the type of kid that if no one is talking to him he'll scope the scene, pick out some kids that look like they are having fun, introduce himself and jump right in to whatever they are doing. And, true to form, that's exactly how he explained his day, he made himself right at home. I am so glad he trusted me and Corey that this move was for the best and he would do great! I love you buddy, you are such a great kid, I could learn a lot from your example.

That is so wierd that your kids are just starting and Tyler has been going for 3 weeks. I know how you feel about the new school thing, I was that way last year with Tyler. I think kids are more resilient then we think they are. I have come to realize as long as they feel loved, have a safe environment and food and clothes nothing else matters.

I love the cheesy smile. So Malik. He is a brave little guy and so smart. I hope the new school continues to go well for him. By the way, while we're in Salt Lake we would like to come & visit if that's okay. Haven't seen ya forever!!!!

My Michael only does cheesy smiles! I didn't know that there was any other kind! I am glad he had a great first day of school.

Malik it's always a little weird to start something new, but take it from someone that went to 4 different schools in elementry, one day you'll look back and won't be able to imagine it any other way. We love you buddy.

You have a very cute school kiddo! I was going through pictures the other day, and found one of Malik and Jack when they were just toddlers. It was at Kokapeli Park--I think at Amber's wedding? It's adorable! Crazy how fast they grow up! Jack was also very excited to see Clone Wars--it's all he could talk about for months before, and he's still talking about how awesome it was!
