Sliding Into First!

Today was Brayden's first day of 1st grade. It couldn't have gone any better. It was fantastic! He was amazed that everyone knew him there....... (by the way.... his Mimi teaches there, but I didn't have the heart to tell him that was the reason). His teacher is fabulous! We are so excited to share this year with her. I had put the whole teacher decision in God's hands and decided not to fret over it. God provided!

This morning daddy dropped him off at Mimi's and she took him with her. When he got to her house, she had cooked breakfast. Apparently Brayden ate all the bacon she cooked, which included Mimi and Opi's share. I didn't warn her how much he loves bacon!

Tonight he had a paper bag that he was to put three things in that told about himself. Here is what he chose...... the baseball that was given to him by a player at the Hooks game, a plastic toy sheep, and a golf ball. All three of those items tell about his life at this moment. I say, that he tried to take his mutton bustin belt buckle but we were too worried about him losing it.

The baseball was responsible for his losing his first tooth, the plastic sheep.... need I say more, and the golf ball is because daddy and Brayden have really gotten into golf. They went on Saturday and ended up tying!!!! I told daddy either he was pretty bad, or Brayden was really good.

Here is a picture of my first grader this morning..... The second picture is his first day of Kindergarten last year. He has grown so much! Time PLEASE slow down!

He just keeps getting more handsome each year!! Can't believe our boys are already 1st graders. Where does the time go? So glad we are seeing it go by together.
