School Days

Hooray for School!! 
I know I have posted a few school pictures in my Insta-Friday posts and if you follow me on Instagram I'm sure you have seen some of them, but I thought I would update you on Hunter's school! 

He is LOVING it!  
Frist day of school walking into the building with the whole family! :) 
I had picked out something for him to wear, but he really wanted to wear his football clothes.  He is carrying his homework that he worked on to bring for his first day. 
We were also told to kiss his hand before leaving that morning.  They read, 'The Kissing Hand' the first day. 

Finding his cubby and hook with his teacher, Mrs. Hills. 
It is a little different here in Kansas.  They have half day kindergarten!  Hunter goes in the morning.  He was ready for all day kinder, but I know God has us where he wants us. 

Finding his desk for the first time. 
Mrs. Hills room is candy themed!  Yum! :)

Starting his work for the day.  
He had a really great first day.  I picked him up the first day, but he really wanted to ride the bus the next day.  

So he road the bus home on the 2nd day.  He was so excited!  
The first week of school kindergarten only goes 3 days.  Depending on your last name you either started on Tuesday or Wednesday and then everyone came on Thursday and Friday.  Oh and school doesn't start until 8:45!!!  WooHoo!  

Hunter REALLY wanted to ride the bus to and from school, so on Monday we started that.  He was so excited!  Ben went to work a little late that morning to make sure he got on the bus and everything, we only had one car at the time. 

Walking to the bus stop. 
It's really just to the corner of our street.  
Can you kind of see him?? This was on the way to school!

On the way home he rides bus number 12.  He was excited that it was bus number 12 because it's Colt McCoy's Longhorn football number!  The lady who brings him home is super sweet! 

This is us just about every morning waiting for the bus. 

The guy who brings him to school is also very nice and knows everyone's name.  I am very impressed with the bus drivers!  At the beginning of the year they call you and tell you where to meet them and introduce themselves.  They even give you their phone number if you have any questions, and it's not their work number!  

Every morning we wait with 3 other little boys.  They all are excited to see each other.  

watching for the school bus

Giving Bubba one last hug before he goes off to school. 

There he goes! :) 
Our conversation after school on Friday...
Hunter:  My school is rich, Mama! 
Me:  It is?  Why do you say that?
Hunter:  Because there is a bathroom right by where we go to P.E.
Haha :) Love him! 

We are soooo incredibly proud of this boy!  He is doing so well and it seems like he has grown up A LOT these last 2 weeks.  Slow down, Hunter-man!!!  Don't grow up to fast! :) 

What do we do while Hunter is away??
Every morning after dropping Hunter off at the bus stop, we come home to this...
Kiddo at the door waiting for us.  Then Maggie and Archer both must ring the doorbell a few times before going inside. :) 

We normally do a little painting, coloring or play-doh. 

Lots of playing with potato heads or other toys. 

We definitely jump on the trampoline! 

We normally do a little reading. 
Some mornings we go for walks. 
I am ready to have my stroller so we can go for runs in the morning! 
If I know I'm not going to be able to run or go to the gym that day, we do a workout video.  Archer and Maggie both like "working out" with me. haha :) 

And lots of playing on the stairs. 
The kids LOVE playing on the stairs.  I think we could take away their toys and they would be happy as long as they have those stairs.  It's kind of crazy!! :) 

We do miss Hunter while he is gone.  It's so weird with him not being here, but I know he is having fun and learning a lot.  Archer asks where he is about 5 times every morning.  Hunter being in school makes the weekends just that much sweeter!  

Happy Monday, ya'll!!  
And to all of my Abilene friends, I hope you and all of your kids had a great first day of school today!
