First Day of school and 7th B-day

Saxon's first day of school was on August 20th, which was also his 7th birthday!
I emailed his teacher to ask if I could send treats, and she emailed me back with an awesome plan...

Nate drove Saxon to his first day of first grade at his new school.
We put him in early track so he started at 8 a.m.
I got there at 10 a.m. with blue donuts.  Saxon really wanted blue with colored sprinkles and Macey's bakery was nice enough to accommodate us :)

We brought one of Saxon's favorite books with us.
His teacher had us all sit up front while all the kids came to the rug.
They sang 3 different birthday songs to Saxon and she put his b-day poster on the wall.  He got a b-day crown and then we read his story to the class and told the class all about him.  The kids were able to ask questions to get to know him better.
After we finished, Saxon passed out his blue donuts and the teacher turned on a video.

Then, the office announced his name over the loud speaker and had him come to the office to get a book.  He was thrilled!!!  It was the best first day of school ever!

That night, we had Panda Express for dinner and then frozen yogurt (Saxon's choice).
What he really wanted was the China Buffet but I said he had to wait for Mike for that.  Mike is the one who got him hooked on all-you-can-eat-Chinese-food :)

While I was ordering the blue donuts at Macey's, they suggested that we do a Texas donut for the b-day boy and they would write on it.  So we did that too :)
Dalton squashed it a little bit on the way home, but you can still kind of read his name.
We LOVE you Saxon!!!
