Back-to-School with #5

My final back-to-school outing is with grandchild #5, the only grandson.

This is actually a finally-starting-school outing: #5 is 3 1/2 yrs. old and will be starting his first year of pre-school. We are all so excited for him to be getting to meet lots of boys and play lots of boy stuff! As the youngest of 5 grandkids and the only boy, he has spent every minute of every day of his life surrounded by pink, sparkles, princesses, and Hannah Montana!#%!!#?!

For his special outing with Mimi, #5 chose dessert (instead of lunch): A McFlurry with M&M's at MacDonalds

Then to Wal-Mart for a new Spiderman lunchbox, "The Hulk" underwear, Camo pj's, jeans, socks, and a notebook with crayons and paints.

We seem to have turned a crucial corner( thank goodness!) since he was drawn to all things Spiderman, The Hulk, and Camo without any prompting from me! (I thought I would have to talk him out of Hannah Montana but he never even looked her direction! YAY!!)

He is just so excited about his new school and new friends and his teacher, Miss Lisa.......

It's going to be a good year for a very articulate, creative 3 yr.old.....
