Happy New School Year, RMT’ers! And Belatedly, T’s First Day of 2nd Grade… in Pictures

T’s first day of 2nd Grade was Wednesday September 2. For the first time in the many years that I’ve kept this blog, I didn’t get a first day of school blog post up on his actual first day of school. I could go through all of the reasons as to why that happened (or didn’t as it were), but that’s totally boring, so nevermind. All that’s important is T re-started school a little over two weeks ago, he’s doing alright, and we are all still adjusting from what seemed to be the never-ending, most fantastic and best. summer. ever. to, well, not.

So enjoy the photos below of T’s last first day of 2nd Grade ever… or that’s the plan anyway!

“2nd Grade!” Kevin proclaims.

Obligatory traditional front door photo on the first day of school (2nd Grade, Sept 2, 2015).

New traditional zombie first day of school photo on our front steps.

Fast-forward to school and our traditional first day of school photo in front of the school's marquee. We got there early to avoid the lines and crowds. Just sort-of kidding.

Now fast-forward to T's classroom door, which was all decorated up and ready for eager 2nd graders! T was happy to find many friends in his class this year (whew!).

Now that's a nice, respectable photo. Thank you, boys!

Parents were let into the classroom before the school day started for a quick look as the old bungalows (from the 1950s-!) had been demolished and replaced. You can see how quick our peek was based on the blurriness of this shot. Oops.

T's desk. He's right by the door for a quick getaway.

No school day is complete without a kickball game after school at "Coachie's." And the first day of school is no different.
