 It's hard to believe it, but Baby went to school today!  He is so excited and ready to be there.  Noah loves to learn and soaks up every chance to try something new.  He has a few obstacles to overcome like prioritizing his morning routine.  He slows down to re-organize hangers, Hot Wheels, and trying to walk up the stairs backwards.  I'm all for all of those activities, just not before breakfast.

This year, Noah is 43 pounds and 43 inches, a pound per inch.  He's in the high 80th percentile for children his age for both his height and weight but is exactly proportionate.

At the Kindergarten pre-test, Noah worked like a terrorist to get information out of his teacher.  He really likes to be on the inside track and a step ahead of others.  He tried to trick her four different times into telling him her first name.  We've also practiced the rule of Who is in charge at school?  Noah dejectedly will answer, "the teacher."  And what should you do when she asks you to do something.?  "Do it."  When?  "Now."

This morning he selected his favorite new shirt (that he insisted on buying).  Creepers gonna creep.  Awesome.  This just might be one awesome school year.  When I took his picture I asked, "Are you ready to go to school?"  "I SURRENDER!"  Wonderful.  And he did.

Jake and I dropped him off in his classroom.  He settled right in and told us, "Uh, guys, I'd really like to be alone now."  With that, we excused ourselves.

No kids at home.  Weird.  We stopped for a donut and soda to celebrate.
