first day of school part 1: john

because of our delayed start in school (the new grammar school building is almost done, but not yet), the big kids (5th-12th grades) started school today without the little kids (preK-4th grades).

so all that to say, today was john's first day of school!  and in keeping with rutherford tradition, i had to take his picture!  isn't he handsome?
john's report of how his first day went?  fabulous!  really? with a little more conversation, i discovered why.  he was obnoxious and silly with the students all day, and they loved it.  he even admitted that he got less and less accomplished in his classes because he found himself playing to his audience and enjoying it a little too much!  ha!  guess that comes with the territory when you are teaching 7th and 8th graders!

how did we cope with john away to work?  we made 36 angel food cupcakes...
so that we could eat these!
not to mention we played legos for 3 hours straight, played a mean game of scooby doo memory (noodle won!), read 8 library books, and swam outside in our little blow up pool.  and i even managed to get 4 loads of laundry done and put away.  hooray!

on the agenda for tomorrow:

chocolate cake with chocolate icing!
