So Kindergarten happened today..and I held it together pretty well. I did cry a little as I drove out of the parking lot. Harrison in the back asking repeatedly for Owen didn’t help either. I was excited for him, though, because he is just so social so I knew he would love it.
Last week was busy with orientation for parents, and then Friday was Meet the Teacher. He was so excited to meet his teacher and find his spot at the front of the room. There were a lot of questions – what do you think the playground will be like? What kind of rules do you think we will have? We read so many books about kindergarten and I found him asleep with all of his books. And Harrison, well, he was right at home in the classroom. He found a spot to sit and was ready to stay.
When I picked him up this afternoon, he was sooo excited. They had chased a gingerbread man all through the school – the office, library, art room, spanish room, etc, and then back to their room for gingerbread cookies. He had such a fun day meeting new friends.
