Today my sweet R started kindergarten. Well, okay, technically his first day of regular class is on Friday, as our school district eases everyone into the new routine by bringing 1/3 of the students to the classroom for a day this week, and then Friday "the gang's all here" so to speak.
So today R was able to test the waters with a small group of new friends and declared that his day was "fantastic!" "Day" being really just a few hours in the afternoon; R will attend PM kindergarten and be able to forgo the early morning rush out the door for one more year.
In the midst of driving SPH to work (flat tire, our second this summer!), picking up one last thing for school at Target, attaching his requested patches on his backpack, assembling all his school supplies, taking the obligatory picture, and actually taking him to and from school, I realized I had completely forgotten to prepare dinner. Guess I was distracted with the big day, so it was veggie burgers to the rescue.
So, without further adieu, some obligatory "First Day of School" pictures:
R designed his own backpack:
Outside his new classroom:
Sentimental mommy that I am, I didn't even have a hint of a tear. Maybe that'll come on Friday?
Either way, I hope your back to school or back to whatever "school year" routine you share goes well...
This tired mom is headed to an early bedtime,
