Here he is with his "First day of Kindergarten" sign. If you can't read it, I wrote, "When I grow up I want to be a" and then he wrote in "Superhero".
The night before, he informed me that Gracie's mommy had tied balloons to her chair on her first day of Kindergarten. Awesome. I didn't have balloons. However, I DID have a random punching ball leftover from a pack of 2 I had purchased when I only needed one. I wrote on it and tied it to his chair and he was thrilled. Doesn't take much with this kid :).
So cut the way they held hands and walked out to the playground together.
Parents were invited into the classroom for a quick talk about some "business items". The kids found their tables and dove right in to the items set out for them.
I can't believe November is almost over now and he's been a Kindergartener for almost 3 months. He loves school and he's doing great. He comes home excited about everything they are doing and learning and he's brought home a gold star for behavior each week. I'm so incredibly proud of him and the amazing person he is. I volunteer once a month for 3 hours and I just love being in his classroom with him and seeing how he is in there. He is such a good listener and hard worker. He is kind and polite. He is incredibly eager to volunteer an answer (even when he doesn't know the right one :) or to be the example. He's just a really awesome little boy and as I tell him all the time, I am so so lucky that I get to be his mommy!
