First Day of 7th Grade!
Isn't he so cute?
He looks so old to me. :(
This is the new principle greeting the kids at the front door.
Garrett looked him right in the eye,shook his hand, said good morning , and started his day!
Today, Garrett (Chandler-whatever) started the SEVENTH GRADE!!!! AGHHHH!!!!! I so vividly remember my first day of seventh grade. Even though he was in Middle School last year as a sixth grader, there is something defining about 7th grade!
This morning he came into my bathroom-he was completely dressed but had a perplexed look on his face. I asked him what the problem was and he pointed to a pimple right in the middle of his forehead! He has been getting them here and there, but hasn't given them a second thought, but today, it was a problem. So funny. We took care of it and off he went- I photo shopped it out of his pictures. (I should note that on my first day of seventh grade I had a HUGE pimple on the end of my nose AND my forehead-I could so relate!)
He did great! Had a great day! Came out with a smile on his face and talking ninety to nothing- I love that part of back to school...hearing him tell me about his world, in his own words, through his eyes! This year I set the bar a little higher and requested all pre-AP classes (advanced placement), which he got. I just thought that the challenge might make him work a little harder and help him set his sights higher, plus, I totally believe in positive peer pressure-he wasn't super thrilled about it, but did really like his teachers and was a bit excited about what's to come! He is also taking tennis and art which he is SO EXCITED about! We are praying for a great year and can't wait to see what God has in store!
Here are a few stats about him- I don't know why I never thought to write this stuff down at the beginning of the year, but I am anxious to see how much he grows and changes...
* 4 feet 9 inches tall
* weighs in at 90 pounds
* wears a size Sm/ Med in "mens" shirts
* wears a size 14 in pants
* wears a size 7 in mens shoes
MERCY!!!! How did he get so big?
