First Day of School

Today was Elijah's first day at his new school. When I told him today was a school day he cried and then thought about it and said "Oh wait I am going to my new school!!" Then he was happy.

After school we went out to lunch. The kids love to butt heads and they think it is SOOOO funny, I do not but who am I to say no. (Oh right I am the mom;)

Quick story. On the way to school today Elijah was talking up a storm (like always) and I was ..... cranky not in the mood to talk all the way there. Here are just a couple of the things we talked about.

E: Mommy I just saw a bunch of bikes. (this was a nano second after another story just ended... something about cranes I think)
Z: Yeah (not happy) ... I mean that is nice. There are a lot of bikes on campus
E: Back there not on campus.
Z: That was still campus, this is a big campus.
E: Yeah it is the biggest in the world.
Z: Not the biggest.
E: The world is just so big.
Z: Yes it is.
E: Why can't we walk to see my cousin?
Z: Because he lives to far away. We could walk, but it would take a long time.
E: Cool lets walk.
Z: No, because it would take way to long.... maybe a year.
E: Cool lets walk.
Z: (OK I am not getting through to him... let me try another way to explain it) You know how you are 4 1/2 now?
E: Yes
Z: Well if we walked you would be 5 1/2 before we got there. (there that should work).
E: Cool I want to be 5 1/2! Lets walk!
Z: How about you talk to your sister for awhile. (boy it was to early for anymore talking;)
