First Day of "School"

Yes, my little Isaiah had his first day of "school" today. Since Isaiah is home bound as far as school/preschool goes, I thought I would try and make this first day of "school" more eventful - you know, not just his therapist showing up for OT. So, I had him decked out in a nice set of clothes fit for school, back pack filled with "homework" (a workbook and a coloring book), and his crayons . . . oh, yeah, and one of his favorite books, Dr. Seuss' ABC's. =0) And just for kicks, his bigger crayon box that looks sort-of like a lunch box. =0) He looked adorable! Of course, I'm biased . . . =0)

Anyway, I figured we needed to start our own back to school traditional photo. I was trying to think of the best place, someplace that works for us. We have trees, but nothing all that gorgeous - a lemon tree, a grapefruit tree, a very little banana tree (that has never actually grown any bananas), an orange tree, and some kind of a weird decorative tree that resembles a prehistoric tree . . . you know, one that you would expect to see at the Museum of Natural History . . . in the dinosaur section. =0) Well, since the trees weren't going to work out so well (especially since it was roasting outside), I had to think of another place.

I happen to really like our front door. It's nothing all that special, except it is solid wood. No windows, nothing overly fancy with stained or frosted glass, just wood. So simple, it's pretty. Nice color in the right lighting, too. =0) So, I figured that it would be the best place to take a back to school picture - after all, he's going back to school. =0)

All that said to show you these:

Doesn't he look so happy? He was ecstatic that Ms. K was coming and is looking forward to Thursday when Ms. F is coming. He had so much fun today - reading books, working on tangram pictures, showing off his new spelling skills (and writing skills - yup, he can write the word "toy" as well . . . go figure)! =0)
