First day of the 2010/2011 school year was yesterday and Rakes dressed accordingly.
New Chucks, new WWE lunchbox, and new Sox t-shirt.
Talking with him about his day at school is usually about as easy as extracting information from one of the Gambino family but yesterday he was pretty excited to share something about his day.
Me: "How was school, buddy?"
Rakes: "Good, Dad. Dad; can I tell you something?"
Me: "Sure, bud."
Rakes: "Dad, in Mr. Agner's class? He doesn't have any Green cards, yellow cards, or red cards!" (Last year, they sent home a card each day with one of the three colors; red meant you got in big trouble, yellow meant you got in a little trouble, and green meant you were good all day. Let's just say his book bag resembled Christmas most of the time. A LOT of Green and Red.)
Me: "Really? So how do we know if you got in trouble that day?"
Rakes: "Dad. I don't think we can GET in trouble in Mr. Agner's class!"
First grade is gonna be interesting.
To say the least.
