Evan's First Day of 2nd Grade

Evan began his 2nd grade year on Monday, August 25th which was the Monday after we returned from the beach.  I think his summer ended in a good way so he was ready.  He got a new backpack and shoes this year.  He got two years out of his Pottery Barn backpack so we figured it was worth it again.  We had thought about going with an LL Bean this year, but they didn't have the one he wanted and were more expensive.  Pottery Barn Kids usually has a sale for back to school.  Evan actually wanted a shark camo one, but it was back ordered until October so we picked one they actually had in the store.  Then, we just had it monogrammed by a lady with a stand right in the mall. He seemed happy with it.

Is it just me, or did he grow 2 feet since last year?

All about Evan this year.  His answers change weekly.  With his favorite food, that is his favorite school lunch food.  As picky as he is, he loves school lunch.  Ha!

He enjoyed filling his book bin with some new books to read.  He has started a new series called "I survived" with different stories about kids who survived different historical events/tragedies like slavery in the Civil War, the Holocaust, the Titanic, Pompeii (probably no real survivors there but still), and 9/11. 
A little flashback of Evan's first day of school pictures:

We hope and pray that Evan will have a great year and learn a lot!

  1. He looked so handsome on his first day! I hope he has a great school year.

  2. He is absolutely adorable! Happy 2nd grade Evan. :)

  3. Wow! He really is getting big. Craziness :) I hope he has an awesome year!!!

  4. Hooray Evan! 2nd grade is big time! Spencer's kindergarten backpack is getting worn out already. I was hoping it would last through 1st grade, but it might need to be a Christmas present and be replaced halfway through the year. Of course backpacks are hard to find then. But, I have gone off on a tangent and will stop now. :)
