And We're Off!

We got the first day of Kindergarten under our belts! Way cool, for all of us! My boy will be gone in the mornings all week long! It's a relief as well as a worry. I hope I've done my job so far, that he's acting like a decent human being out there in the world!

He was VERY cooperative this morning, getting ready. This was unusual. He is usually as slow as molasses! He got ready and packed his back pack!

The bus picks up in our neighborhood, just a short walk out our back gate..... he is still the King of Dinking Around, though.

On the way there, "Look Mom! A chewed up tennis ball!"
"Yes, son, keep walking!"

He already knows some of the kids that take the bus in the morning with him, he was excited to sit by them.

He just hopped right on, and that was that!

He had a great first day. He says the bus is more fun than school though. Silly. He made some friends in class already and "built with blocks and gears". And the teacher has some sign language that they'll all use when they need to go to the bathroom. Cannon says he got that taken care of right away.
And they have a drinking fountain right in their classroom! What a luxury! And he caught a grasshopper at recess.

Can you imagine a more perfect way to begin your official school career?

Way to go, Cannon Boy! Off we go!

I love all of his five-year-old details...the drinking fountain, the blocks and gears, the grasshopper at recess. SO cool and SO important!! That's the stuff that he'll remember for a long time. Yay for kindergarten, and yay for a brave kid! Way to go, Cannon!!

Wahoo Cannon! He also told me the bus was the most fun! Ah, so much like our B! Wait until it's the end of Kinder and he can hardly wait to eat lunch at school! It's the little things.......

I had such a love/hate relationship with the first day of kindergarten. It is so fun to see them start their school journey.
