Happy Labor Day everyone! Today is the Change of Grade Day here at the Gandara Bug Academy. Before you go getting all hot and bothered about today being a holiday and all… we decided to celebrate our first day of school on a day Daddy could join us – and Daddy has today off because of the holiday – making it a perfect first day of school!
Breakfast is special on the first day… Alphabits
M for Megan
L for Lauren
And D for Douglas
Even Buloney got into the spelling action this morning:
After Breakfast I sent the bugs to shower and get dressed… While they got ready the “new school supply Fairy” paid them a visit… well apparently there is no room in he world for the school supply fairy – because Lauren informed me she knows I get them all their school supplies lol.
The highlight was new backpacks this year… everyone got their favorite:
Lauren = Hannah Montana
Megan = Camp Rock
Douglas = Ben 10
Here are the bugs discovering what’s inside
It is a tradition to walk to school on the first day… so here we go!
Notice Daddy in the background… he has the door to the “bus” open for a surprise trip!
Here are the bugs loaded on the bus… buddies and all!
We drove up to a local apple orchard – Los Rios Rancho for a First Day Field Trip!

The bugs took a workshop (that we just happened to luck out and discover!) on Animal adaptations and their senses. After Douglas showed the teachers his super speed (he is a super hero you know) the bugs got to listen, touch, and learn all about local animals and their adaptations. The perfect classroom!
I could not have asked for a better day! I know we will have lots of learning going on this year… our first adventure is the Amazon Rain Forest… stay tuned for more adventures with the GBA – I promise to be a better blogger!
