lots of firsts

This week has brought a lot of firsts for our family.
On Monday Matthew was officially one month old. A first for him! We took him to the doctor's office for a weight check. He is a hefty 11 lbs 5 oz!!!
On Tuesday Samuel had his first day of First Grade. We took him to the bus stop as a family to see him off. He was super nervous. About an hour after school had started I had an uncontrollable urge to go to the school and peek through the windows to see how he was doing. The only thing that stopped me was the thought of dragging Matthew and James along. We walked down to the bus stop to wait for Sam to get home but when the bus arrived only two kids got off neither of whom I recognized. I walked up to the now closed doors of the bus with a really confused look on my face and the driver opened the door laughing. Samuel hadn't realized it was his stop! He was sitting with his friend Megan and was totally oblivious to what was going on around him. Typical Samuel. The first day was a smashing success in his book.
Tuesday was also James' first day of soccer. For two years he has been watching from the sidelines as Samuel played. He has been dying for it to be his turn and finally, today, it was. Other than a little breakdown (tears and all because the ball he was playing with went flat and John took it away) he loved it! His first game will be on Saturday. I love watching kids this age play soccer!
Friday Samuel has his first soccer practice of the season and his first game will be Saturday as well.
