Yesterday was Henry's first full day of school for this year. He went in on Tuesday with Meg, but that was a comparatively brief introduction to the new teacher and class. That went pretty well so we had decent expectations for the first day. Henry also told me he was "looking forward to it." (my words, his confirmation) I didn't here much directly from Henry about yesterday, but he told Meg a bunch.

He was dropped off with no problems (always a good sign). He told us that "some kids read books. The teacher told me a story about herself and then woke up." We're not sure what that meant, but like most of Henry's stories you have to fill in the details yourself and do a lot of guessing as to the true meaning. He also told us, "Wyatt used the swings too much" and expressed that he missed his buddy Ryan especially when outside during playtime. He told us some details about the Legos the classroom has and told us that "they sang 'The Wheels on the Bus', but I didn't help them; the teacher let me pick which part to do."

252 small dollars turned up one proof dollar (2003S).

9,800 quarters rounded up two silver quarters (1937, 1964), one proof quarter (2005S OR), nineteen Canadians, one US dime and one Bermuda 25¢. This batch pushed me over the 2 million mark!

8,950 dimes yielded five silver Rosies (1948, 1953, 1959D, 1960D, 1964), nineteen Canadians, one Bermuda 10¢ and one Mexican 10¢.

3,600 nickels got me one Buffalo (1936), two War Times (2 x 1943P), nine Canadians (6 Ni), one US dime, one US penny, one Bermuda 5¢ and one semi-key Jefferson, the 1949S.
