1st of 1st

Today was a BIG day in the Jones household....Hunter's 1st day of 1st grade!

Last week, on Tuesday, we anxiously awaited the mailman's arrival. Luckily for us, we are early on his route, so at 11:30 as he walked up to our front door, I quickly intercepted and lo and behold- there was the big oversized envelope from school. We were thrilled when we saw that Hunter had Mrs. Moczygemba. He was a little overwhelmed at how to pronounce her name, but we have it down now. And she could not be any kinder, sweet-natured, and just easy with the kids. Icing on the cake is that she has a tremendous reputation for being a strong teacher, so we feel like we hit the lotto.

Since we already have icing on this cake, I guess the cherries on top would be the fact that we have quite a few precious friends that are in class with Hunter this year and we could not be more excited! Even better is that they mix up at specials (PE, art and music) and recess, so he has the potential to be with so many kids in his grade. We feel so blessed to have such a great group of kids for Hunter to go through school with.

See him coming out the left side door- the day is over!

Tradition continues- Blake and Emily and I baked a "1" cake this year after a "k" cake from last year. It tasted better than it looks.

I'm a Woodridge kid now!

Not to be outdone- our mini Mule!
