D starts 1st grade in two days, so I spent the morning taking care of errands which included buying him two new school uniform hoods. One to use, and one to lose. With all my business and chores done, J and I thought we deserved to have some fun. We headed out to Santa Monica where we enjoyed a fun afternoon gawking at random street performers, eating ice cream and riding the roller coaster at the pier. D had a great time! He took a taste of his ice cream and proclaimed, “I’m in heaven!”. When he got off the roller coaster he stated, “I’m even more in heaven!” It was a beautiful way to celebrate the end of his summer vacation, even if the weather had a Fall chill. Here he is wearing one of his new hoodies, and posing appropriately for the end of summer. Bring on first grade!
