Here's Paul on the first day of sixth grade, looking and feeling quite grown up. Since fifth grade marks the beginning of his Middle School, he has one year behind him. He feels like he has the system down and is ready to be "very organized" this year. I can only hope!
Paul has grown taller this summer and will soon need longer pants. And without any fuss he chose lace-ups as his new school shoes instead of his old velcro-fastened ones; another sign of growing up.
