The First Day





Kaishon had a great first day of school. 179 more days to go!
How was your first day back to school this year?
My California friends started in the middle of August!
My Minnesota friend started the day after Labor Day.
It finally feels like it's Fall.

I love the pictures. The third one down is priceless...shows his cuteness perfectly.
We stared Aug 19. The kids are doing good, but I have to be on top of them everyday to keep up the good work. I suppose that is MY job. ;)

Happy days! It looks like Kaishon is happy to be back on campus. I love the backpack too.
It's a plus that he likes his teacher.

They are absolutely adorable.

To answer your question regarding birthday presents, a lot depends on the age of the child. If you'r talking younger (like 10 and below), I would ask the mother what the child is interested in. I remember buying Barbies, games, Legos, actions figures, matchbox cars, etc., depending on the interests of the child.

As they get older, though, I tend to give gift certificates, like to a book store, or Wal-Mart, or Game Stop, so the child can pick out what he/she wants. If I am doing a gift certificate, I usually do $20 or $25.

Good luck!

Yea! School finally started! The pictures are fantastic!

Sometimes I miss school, but I think it's mostly the carefree days of youth that I'm nostalgic for!

Things have been crazy busy here so i haven't gotten to comment as much as usual, but I always read.....so I don't miss anything!

Hope the next week is a great as the first day!

That's a handsome kid. I like the coordinating camo backpack and shorts.

You do start school late. Why is that? When do you finish? We start the week before Labor Day...to me it is always feel like summer still.

I need you to fill me in on you guys a little. You have the most amazing rainbow of friends. Who is the little girl that had to go home? She is darling. Reminds me of Lauren when she is older. Fill me in...I love your little boy he is so charming.

how does Kaish like school? I hope they don't go back on strike. Stinking teachers!! Every day I saw them striking, I'd throw tomatoes at them :-)
