First Day of School 2011/12

Did you know? Four out of five kids are in full-day school these days!
7th, 5th, 2nd and 1st...whoo-whee! That's a lot of school supplies!

Just for comparison, here's a picture from last year:

 Aww, look at my little buzzed buddies.
Noble can't get used to this full day of school for Micah.
Every day around lunch he asks me, "where Mah-cah?"

 He's in school with his little Waldorf lunch basket!
Micah's excited about his big-kid desk, I think.

 It's all old-hat to Morgen now. She's excited that her desk has a little cubby for her crayon pouch and stuff. Stuff like balls of wax and little sticks and pebbles. She's a collector.

 Here's me distracting my hyper little monkey while we wait for the 1st grade Rose Ceremony to begin. The Waldorf Tradition does this to welcome the 1st graders into the Grades, as opposed to having a Kindergarten Graduation at the end of last year.

 Micah hands me his rose as he is escorted back to his classroom by an 8th-grade buddy. The 8th graders participate as leaders in the school, as this will be their last year here.

"Been there, done that!" Morgen's just happy as a clam today!

Have fun at school, guys! Like Papa used to say to me, "Learn lots of things today!"
