Jack on the other hand was totally pumped. I don't know if it was the new backpack or what, but he had no fear.
Turns out that everything went really well. Jack made a new best friend the very first day. His name is Jackson and Jack says its like they are twins! :) Nathan, poor sweet thing, walked in the cafeteria and sat down near some random people. Then he spotted a girl he knew from church and went and sat down near her but she didn't notice him and then he noticed a boy from Cub Scouts and went to him and they clicked and have played together every day since! Oh how that makes my heart happy.
Anyway, here are some pictures from Day 1:
And this year's back to school cake. Every year I make some sort of cake for a celebration that night. This year I decided to simplify and instead of the grand idea I had for a pencil cake made with fondant, I stuck some school supplies on a basic 2 layer and I think it turned out really fun!
