These pictures are the real deal. What do I mean ? You know, the messy hair, the dirty "goober" on his nose, marker on his fingers. They were taken after school by Dave, so please excuse the fact that there is no cool shot of his entire outfit to include backpack and lunch bag. Which are both camouflage print, of course.
But isn't he rockin' that great shirt? I bought the graphic at istockphoto.com because it was so perfect for him. I still plan to make shirts like this for Cafe Press, but I did this one with a transfer. Click on picture to see it better.
I asked him to jot down some stuff about his first week of school. After grumbling about how it felt like homework, he finally complied. This is what he wrote, unedited:
"I like recess the best. because it is fun. I like lunch becaus I am olways hungrey. I like art becaus I like to draw. The rest I don't like so much."
So there you have it. The first week of fourth grade summed up by a typical nine year old boy.
