The Night Before Second Grade

Thought I'd share the sweetest thing we did the night before the first day of second grade. Aston's  second grade teacher handed us a booklet the night of the school's teacher and parents meet and greet last week. It was something we'd read with him the night before the first day of school. 

here's what the cover page says : 

open and read this together at bedtime on sunday. no peeking! 

inside is a packet of sequins confetti

here's what's written inside : 

I just thought that was the neatest thing. Honestly, it was tough getting him to bed early last night. We've spent late summer nights and he's struggled going back to the old early routine. But as soon as he read that, he got really excited. He did refuse to sprinkle "girly" sequins under his pillow as the book instructed but he did hold on to that booklet till he fell asleep! 

Happy first day of school to most kiddos and happy Monday to all!
