in 9 days Alec starts grade one. A bit exciting and a bit scary. Now we start to learn how to read and write, there will be new people, a new teacher, a new classroom. We have a social story book for him that I am going to print out today for him so we can start looking at it.
I am prepared for some unrest but I really think he will be just fine. Our pre-preparation has been constant so he knows what to expect, it doesn't always mean the way it happens is the way he has it planned out, that is when we have trouble, Alec is a huge forward planner.
Thankfully shoe shopping was easier than I thought it would be, every time I have told him we need to buy school shoes he has told me he doesn't need any so he wont be coming...
it was a bit sad, we took grandma to the airport yesterday so she could fly home. We had a lovely Christmas and it means so much to Alec and Riley to have her here.
It was just revolting at the airport though, while it was 38 outside I am sure it was 40+ inside and 98% humidity, add to that Penny and Michael had a 45 minute wait to check in the bags and get through security. I took the boys upstarts for some lunch and to watch the planes.
