First Day at School

Today was Marcus’ first day at school. It’s taken a bit of work to pry any details out of him, but we know he went swimming (he could touch the bottom, which he thought was very cool – our pool is about three or four inches too deep for him), and the teacher read a story and he drew some pictures. The kids get their stationery tomorrow and since Friday is a holiday I suspect learning starts seriously next week. Here’s the new schoolboy in his school uniform (and one photo from his birthday party on Saturday since I haven’t posted any pics from that).

Gosh, he looks so grown up in his uniform.
Love the Wall-e cake - well done.

I was a little surprised at what you all were wearing until I remembered where you live. It's only 32F/0C here right now, and I live in a "warmer" area of the USA! LOL He looks so grown up in his uniform, my goodness!

What a cool school kid!
The first day of school is so special for the whole family.

Didn't he just turn five? School must start late in NZ!

Congrats on the milestone :)
