William had his first day of grade five today. He has the teacher we expected, she is very good and he likes her. He came home quite excited about things that were happening so overall it was a great day. We took him out after school for new shoes and even that didn't dampen his spirits. He's moved up to size six shoes and he now is more comfortable running. He now admits that his shoes weren't comfortable which is why he kicks them off in the movie theatres (this has led to lengthy hunts during the end credits).
