Jaydon's First Day of Second Grade

What can I say? 
He is definitely the most handsome second grader that has ever set foot inside his elementary school?  He is my angel?  He is such a blessing?  He did so well?

This year, I didn't get quite as emotional as in years past.  (Kindergarten & First Grade)  It has gotten better year by year, but it isn't any easier for sure.
I am, however, going to miss having him around.  He is my little helper.

He woke up promptly at 7:00 and said, "Today is the first day of school, right?"  I think he was half asleep. 
I packed his lunch, ironed his shorts, and he ate breakfast.  He actually ate some dry cereal this morning along with his Ensure.  I explained that he would have to eat more at breakfast because his lunch time will be later and later every year.  It must have clicked because he ate a lot of cereal. 
He then opened his "first day of school card" that Tia Jessenia had mailed him.  He was excited because it said to call her at 6:30 PM to tell her about his day.  He came home after school and counted down the hours minutes seconds until 6:30.  Thanks, Tia!

Jeremy stayed home with the two little ones this morning so that I could walk Jaydon in.  Thanks, babe!  Like always, it was packed.  It will be this way all week.  There was also the fair share of non-observant drivers who were turning left into the driveway of the school when the posted sign says, "No Left Turn"!  (cough, cough . . . IDIOTS!)  Thank goodness for the motorcycle cop sitting there giving out warnings.  Seriously - how do people get a driver's license? 

We walked to his classroom, and after I took a picture of him with his teacher, he gave me a kiss, and went right to his desk.  He started chatting away with another little boy who has been in his class for three years in a row now.  The mom who was scared her son would never speak is now worried that he will get in trouble for talking when he isn't supposed to.  Go figure!

He is using the same backpack & lunchbox from Land's End that he has used for the past TWO years.  The BEST investment I have ever made.  It's just solid red with his name monogrammed on the lunchbox, and his initials on the backpack.  He can't really "outgrow" it, and besides a couple of spots on the lunchbox, they both still look great. 
Unless the Crips decide to initiate him this year, we should be good to go for another year.  I will buy him something new next year for sure because a sweet lady I know has been posting some cute designs for lunchboxes on her website.

Jeremy came home tonight with a gift for him.  Three years running - he hasn't forgotten to get his boy a gift for his first day of school.  ALL his doing with no reminder from me.  This year, he brought him a new Nintendo DS game and a recorder.  So sweet!  What a great daddy Jaydon has, huh?
 
I am so proud of my boy.  Even if he doesn't make straight A's, have perfect conduct & perfect attendance like he did last year, I will still be proud of him.  He has come such a long way.  He is such a joy.  His teacher should be elated to have him in her class.

I ♥ you, Jaydon Cole Rogers!
Go get 'em, you big, handsome, intelligent, GQ second grader!
