Lunch with the Big Kids

Last week Miss Priss and I went to eat lunch with Big Brother. Ally has been really looking forward to this and I was also curious to see how the whole lunch thing with Kindergartners and First Graders goes down:-). Here's Honey and Ally before lunch. We are SO BLESSED that Ryan gets to go to First Woodway Christian School. It is an amazing place. We cannot go to the school without making a stop to see our favorite administrator!

Ryan chose Dominos pizza for lunch and this was the best picture he was going to give me. nice.
One thing to know about Ryan is that he would really like to be invisible. He doesn't like any special attention, acknowledgement or anything out of the ordinary when he's in public. So he was not too happy about walking to the end of the table to eat with Ally and I. Honey says I was the exact same way as a kid, so it's no wonder she knows how to deal with him so well! Sometimes I can get so frustrated with him for this personality quirk, but thankfully mom assures me things will change one day. I mean just look at the social butterfly I am now-he he. Miss Priss does not share this affliction. Note the blue teeth. She was having the time of her life.

After school, I asked Ryan if he enjoyed our little lunch and he said, "yeah, but next time I want to sit with my friends".-classic Ryan.

So I guess I'll bring him lunch and watch him eat from afar!

Yep - LP spends the entire lunch waving at his friends and asking if he can go sit with them while I am there. Makes me feel so loved! If they are like this in K and 1st....they may never want us even in the same town once they hit Jr. High!

What a priceless look he is giving the camera!! Gotta love that little man. Isn't lunch with the big kids great - and scary to think that our babies are old enough.
