Almost First Day of School

First day of First grade came and went without any "before" pics. Mike had my good camera, and my other was MIA, so Cam got off to school without any. Luckily, in his classroom, another mother was snapping photos of all the kids with their new teacher, Ms.Fuchs (pronounced Fox). So, eventually I will have some first school pictures of Cam, but for now, this will have to do.

The first week was a bit rough. On Tuesday, the first day of school, Cam was complaining of not feeling very well but I figured it was the nerves talking. Mara and I took him to school, walked in with him and left without any hesitation. He was very excited to see some old friends and meet new ones. I drove directly to Mara's daycare/pre-school where she attends on Tuesday and Thursdays. After she was settled in I was homefree!!! I couldn't wait to do something alone, so I went and ran a few errands. Exciting, I know.

10:30 rolls around and I recieve a phone call from Ms.Clara, the school nurse reporting Cam has a fever of 102.5 and has thrown up. Great. I went to pick my poor little guy up, came home and he layed down for most of the day. There were a few episodes of nausea, another vommitting, and then it was time to go get Mara. I made Cam hold a bowl in his lap just in case something came up....

Cam needed to stay home until his fever had been gone for 24 hours, so he missed the second day of school, too. Fortunatley, the first week of 1st grade isn't too heavy on homework, so he doesn't have make-up to do.

Thursday and Friday were normal, with him up and out the door bright and early. He is looking forward to this new year; learning new things and meeting new friends. His teacher seems to be really great. I like her a lot. Since I'm out of school now, I hope to have more time to participate in Cam's classroom. There are always lots of jobs for moms to do there.

Today we started week two and things seem to be just fine. I hope the rest of the year goes well!!

So you are free on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I will have to keep that in mind.

He is just too cute. Sorry about the rough beginning, though.

Those big brown eyes, cute cheeks, he is one cute kid. Glad he is doing better. Love Mrs. Fuchs!
