Sounds like summer is ending soon (Aug. 20, 23 and 25)

August 17, 2009

Today was M.’s big first day of first grade. From what he told me, it went pretty well. He couldn’t remember eating lunch, which means he didn’t hate it, and he liked the bathroom, which means he won’t try to hold it until he gets home. He talked to some kids, got into minor trouble in music class, ran until he was sweaty at recess. The only downside to the day, as far as I was concerned, is that his bus was an hour late getting him home — a VERY rainy hour. Luckily his stop is right in front of our house and S. was able to stay dry indoors most of the time.

So summer is ending. You can tell by the free concert listing too — the fall session of Twilight Tuesdays starts next week (Aug. 25) at the Missouri History Museum, featuring Gumbohead at 6:30 p.m. This Thursday (Aug. 20) is the second-to-last Sounds at the Station at Union Station, with Alvin Jett and Phat Noiz from 5 to 8 p.m.  And Sunday (Aug. 23) is the final Ivory Perry Park Concert Series, performed by Coco Soul from 6 to 8 p.m.

S. keeps asking when he can jump in leaves. Pretty soon, I tell him.  Pretty soon.
