Maddux and Eli both have larger classes with only one or two names they even recognize among the list of their classmates. Quite crazy, but that's how big their school is.
We kicked off the morning as we often do for special occasions, with pancakes and eggs. The kids were all smiles and they couldn't wait to walk up to the bus stop (several minutes early, of course). Our bus stop has grown so much since Eli's first day of Kindergarten, and now he only has one more first day of elementary school! Maddux and the other girls outnumber at the bus stop, so this year I have suggested heavily to Eli that he be the last to board the bus; ladies first!
