The headline you see is the Subject of an email I got from Little JCrew’s teacher on the first day of school.
The boys had orientation on Monday. It was a fast-paced morning to introduce the kids to their new teachers. Little JCrew held Mr. Brigglesworth’s hand as my attempt to keep them from running away from me or each other in a crowded parking lot. It worked, and as they reached the top of the stairs, Little JCrew yelled, “We did it!” They quickly let go of hands and the moment was gone. Precious while it lasted.
We were ready for the first day of school on Wednesday. Little JCrew knew what this day was all about and he was so excited. Mr. Brigglesworth had no clue that this would be so much more fun than Sunday School.
I did feed the boys a cookie before their first day. It was the only way I could get them to pose for a picture. Little JCrew was too busy watching his favorite show, that when I paused it, he frowned. The cookie made it better.
Mimi played with the placement of the cookies as ears and glasses and the boys thought it was hilarious.
Little JCrew looks so grown up. He has definitely grown in inches.
Back to the “Prison Break.” I received a voicemail and an email from Little JCrew’s teacher. She had to put him in timeout on the first day of school. (Oh, boy!) But the reasoning made me smile and I was not mad at all. Little JCrew’s class and Mr. Brigglesworth’s class were outside on the playground at the same time. There is a toddler side of the playground that is fenced off from the big-kid playground. The brothers saw each other and Little JCrew went to rescue his brother. Next thing you know, Mr. Brigglesworth is smiling with glee that he is on the big kid playground.
I can just picture it! The boys play together on the big kid playground after church. Little JCrew knew Mr. Brigglesworth was big enough to play, so he was going to let him. But we had to talk with Little JCrew so he understood that Mr. Brigglesworth has to stay with his teachers.
It made me happy that the brothers really do have a love for each other. I see it at home, but it’s heart-warming to know it goes on when Mom and Dad aren’t around.
Little JCrew also got to play with scissors for the first time. He really enjoyed it.
And they both brought home crafts from the first day.
I hope everyone and the kiddos are having great weeks back at school.
