He was super excited for the first day, as was his little brother! We had a hard time convincing Cavan that he was not going to school as well. My mom had sent the boys up matching backpacks and they also have matching jackets. They looked so adorable!
Hunter has shed no tears and can barely manage a good-bye when I drop him off. Cavan keeps trying to sneak into class and tells me a number of times that he will be starting school soon. Cavan even remembers the teachers name (Miss Evans) while Hunter just calls her "Teacher".
And everyone asks if I cried when dropping him off for the first day.... NOPE! I did a little happy dance. I love my kid, but wow having three hours a day without him is sure a great little break!!

And they're off! Notice who is in the lead?
And it only took four days for our first meeting with the teacher and principal! Hunter hit another kid (he was upset over having to put away toys) and all I could think was how many more times am I going to get a call like this over the next 14 years! It was all fine with everyone involved and the other parents and us had a good laugh over it all.
