I remember walking down the streets of NYC with Daniel in the stroller. Old women would stop to admire my baby, and they would often said things like "Enjoy", "It goes by so fast", and "Before you know it, he will be starting kindergarten". At that point, kindergarten seemed like a millions years away.
Well, the much anticipated day has arrived. Daniel started kindergarten today! I know that it is just kindergarten and is really only the beginning, but the experience was a little emotional (mainly for me).
|Daniel requested a breakfast of champions- mickey mouse (yes- that is what it is suppose look like) pancakes with fruit and whipped cream. Not sure where his shirt is?|
|He asked that I get a shot of his new backpack|
|Outside his school.|
I asked a friend to watch the younger two so I could focus on Daniel.
Staring at his new classroom before walking in.
D is usually a pretty outgoing and confident little guy. This morning he wanted to hold my hand most of the time and was very quiet.
|His teacher asked that parents stay for 20-30 minutes. We were able to walk around and become familiar with the classroom. Daniel also met a few friends.|
|And 2.5 hours later he is home!|
|You can tell from his face that he had a GREAT day. And I was so happy to hear that his good friend Isaac rides the bus with him.|
|And someone was very happy to see him.|
This little boy is growing up. I am so proud of him.
