Watch Out Harvard....Porter Is Almost There....First Grade Started!


We all know how much Porter loves school.  Secretly at night, Brandon and I dream about him going to an Ivy league school.  I guess that means we need to sock away a TON of money for tuition!!  Anyhow, he was SUPER excited as the days approached for school to start.  Much to his delight, it came right after our trip to California and his trip to Texas to see Uncle Mike.  

He is now in Mrs. Needham's first grade class, and has already had a slew of homework.  He loves to sit and study, and makes sure he gets more than the required amount of reading done at night!  We loved his Kindergarten teacher and are grateful for the foundation she laid for him in getting him ready for first grade.  So far we are loving his new teacher too.  She seems excited about what she does and is truly concerned for the learning that each kid does.  We look forward to working with her, and many fun school projects!  (For those of you who don't know.....Red is Porter's favorite color!  He was so excited to get red converse!)
