We gave him chores to start off the new school year. He is responsible to get himself dressed, brush his teeth, (I know minimal hygiene - this is even difficult stuff around here!), eat breakfast, clear his dishes off the table, and finally - make his bed. Wednesday morning he ROCKED the new chores right on out. I have this strange feeling that the "rocking" won't continue forever, so I should probably be uber-thankful.
LT was all set for his first day with a new backpack and lunchbox. (Transformers was the theme this year...) He didn't quite wear the exact outfit I had picked out. (Substitute sporty shorts and soccer socks instead of the normal/preppy stuff I had picked out...) Anyways, Corey and I dropped him off for his first day and he was READY to get the party started. Seriously, he might as well have said "Buh, bye" on our way out. Although, I will take that any day over drama! Here is a picture of our little man signing his name on the way into class. This is one of his "responsibilities" after he arrives in his classroom.
