First Day of School

I am a little late on this one, since school started 3 weeks ago, but I guess better late than never.

Robby started second grade this year.  He loves school and was so ready to get back.  He is really enjoying it.  He has a great teacher and everything seems to be going well.  I am so proud of him for being such a good kid and for always trying his hardest.

He is at a really fun stage.  He is starting to understand the world and we have some great discussions. His most recent fascination is with license plates.  Who knew that you could have full conversations revolving around license plates?  We have had many.  His vocabulary is increasing.  It seems like almost everyday he uses a word that I have never heard him use before.  He is just a lot of fun to be around.  I am very glad he is my son.

Robby is happy and excited to go to school each day.  Zoe, on the other hand, does not think it is such a great idea.  She hates that he leaves her every day.  She loves to walk him to school.  She will talk and smile the whole way, but then, every time, she cries the whole way home.  Poor kid.  Luckily, they are usually both happy at the end of the day when he comes home again.
