Fourth Grade!?!?!

I can hardly believe that I have a fourth grader now. This is his last year in Elementary School here. It seems like I was just taking him to preschool. So far he LOVES his teacher! This is so great because he had a pretty hard year last year and had difficulty with his teacher. I can't begin to tell you how happy this makes me. He told me today that his teacher is, "making learning fun"! Granted that it's just the second day of school but I'm still doing a little happy dance. I did remember to take some pictures yesterday morning. I'm not that happy with them because he wasn't in the "mood" to have his picture taken. But by golly...I always take his picture on the first day of school and I'll probably do it until he's out of high school. Or at least that's what I'm saying now.
Before getting in the car to leave.

At the school and just out of the car.

I don't know why but this next picture is one of my favorites from that morning. He was walking towards the school and still had some worries about the day. His feet are carrying him along the way. I just had to focus in on them.

On the first day of school he came home with a sheet of questions that they all got to answer. I loved some of his answers and thought I would share them here.

1. My favorite place is: Silver Dollar City.
2. After school, I like to: skateboard.
3. When I feel sad, it helps to: play football.
4. My favorite time of year is: summer.
5. I wish I were as tall as: my dad.
6. I'm good at: soccer.
7. If I could rule the world, I'd: eat candy.
8. I could make school a better place by: more recess.
9. If I had $100, I'd: make more libraries.
10. My favorite possession is: my dog.
11. If I lived in another country, I'd like to be: famous.
12. On my birthday I'd like to: swim.

On a completely different subject...our van. If you don't know what happened read here. Our van was towed away yesterday. We now have a rental car...it's nice. Don't know when we'll here what the total of the damage will be. Just from when Andy was there he found out that the hood, grill, and front bumper will need to be replaced. What's scary about that is the front didn't have that much damage compared to the back! The sad/frustrating news is that the guy that ran into us has insurance through the dealership that he purchased the truck from. It's a broker and they said that they couldn't get someone out here to look at the van until the end of the week. Wouldn't even do a rental car until possibly then either. So...we're filing with our own insurance and they can fight with his. It's really frustrating that those of us that do have insurance and are not at fault in an accident still end up paying for everything. I'm still really sore. Mainly my right shoulder and elbow. I'm giving it a few more days and if it doesn't show sign of starting to feel better I'll head to the doctors. My headaches are finally gone and my neck and back pain are starting to go away. But I still do feel the aches all over.

WOW. He is such a good-looking kid.

I think is answers to #7 and 8 are the best! Of course, the library answer was a good one, too.

I'm glad you're feeling a little better after the accident. That is so frustrating about the insurance deal. I've been praying for y'all and will continue to do so!
