New Names and Numbers
It was his first day at school.
At the breakfast table: "Caleb, remember I'm gonna be in my own classroom, so I won't be able to help you if you forget your teacher's name." ~ Sam
He was so excited!
"Noah, Sam and me are going to get on the schoolbus and go to school today, so we're not gonna be here for you to play with, but you get to stay here and do special schoolwork with Mama!" ~ Caleb
He loved it. Before we were even in the house after he bounded off the bus, he was unzipping his backpack and taking out the things he made in school.
He said it was okay that he didn't learn anyone's name today because if he wanted to know their name tomorrow, he'd just read their name tag.
His favorite part of the day was doing the calendar, an activity which apparently involves counting the children in the class. He found out there's more girls than boys. I'm sure this was shocking to him.
