Much to Jack's delight, he and Sawyer now attend the same school. This school follows our local public school calendar, so the new year starts on Monday.
(This is one of the times when my Maryland upbringing makes me feel baffled by Texas. School NEVER started in August when I was growing up. Not to mention that it was 102 degrees today. When is the season for apples and pencils and jackets? Sigh.)
Anyway, also much to Jack's delight, he will be an official big kid starting on Monday. He will be in Pre-K. He will be, in school parlance, a Lion. His fellow Pre-K kids will also be in the Jaguars and Cheetahs classrooms. They are clearly the most sophisticated students in the school.
The promotion to Lion comes after Jack's successful year as a Dolphin. I attempted to document Jack's last day as a Dolphin photographically. I was rebuffed.
Sawyer, in contrast, is a Lamb. And he will continue to be a Lamb on Monday. Far from his fierce and sophisticated Lion brother, Sawyer is still cuddly.
Though apparently, based on sartorial clues, he aspires to be a Tiger. I guess we'll have to see.
(Side note: Does anyone else think that Sawyer looks EXACTLY LIKE MY MOM?)
I hope your day involves both cuddles and sophistication.
Talk to you soon.
