It's the 1st day of the 1st grade...


Elijah's first day is tomorrow morning. We're ready. Open house was great. His teacher's name is Ms. Lowe and she is young, enthusiastic and friendly. He found all of the important classroom essentials- clock, pencil sharpener, trash cans, coat cubby and of course, his desk. He already knows several of the kids in his class from Kindergarten or day care, and that really helped him get excited. The picture was taken in his classroom, at his desk. He's looking WAY too grown up!

He has a DESK! Look how big he looks in that real looking classroom. I'm taking deep breaths right now and holding on to this year of Kindergarten we have. :)

Simile Metaphor Collection

Elijah after running: My heart is beating like a coconut rolling down a hill.
Elijah on urination: Pee is like horses galloping out of the gate. Once they get started you just can't stop them.
Elijah: If school were a human I'd give it a wedgie.
Elijah: I am like a hot rod and I just want to be a plain old Ford
Elijah on the fruits of the spirit: I've got them all covered except self-control. Its like a tiny green tomato and the rest are all big ripe ones. Especially love. Its like the biggest tomato we saw in the garden tonight.
