i was the first one up this morning & was in the living room watching the news when isaac got up. he came out & hopped up on the couch. then 5 minutes later said, "mom, did you forget it's my first day of kindergarten today?" guess someone was eager to get the day started!
we made a big breakfast to fill up his hollow legs, then headed to the worst named school in history, louis WIENER elementary.
dennis, lauryn, & i dropped him off with no tears shed by anyone. i guess we'd been preparing for this all summer so we were all more excited than sad. although he didn't know anyone in his class, he does know a few other kids in other kinder classes & 1st grade.
isaac's teacher is ms. lingatong. she is super nice, energetic, & organized.
doesn't he look so grown-up carrying a backpack like this? i like the blue/green color combo of his bp ~ makes it easy to spot!
isaac got the morning slot for school from 9:00-11:40. after leaving him with his teacher, we headed to the multi-purpose room for the "boo hoo" breakfast for parents of kindergartners. there lauryn enjoyed a chocolate doughnut! dennis then headed to work while lauryn & i went home. then dennis came back to get us so we could all take isaac out for a happy meal to celebrate his first "official" day of school. his legs were hollow again & needed fillin'.
my guys looked so nice today so i had to take a picture to share with you.
all in all, it was a very successful first day of kindergarten! just think, we could have had to deal with a child who was scared witless, crying like crazy, or we could have had to deal with a child who got in trouble on the very first day ~ like our friend's son who got in trouble for saying "butthole" across the room, then told everyone that his dad wears his mom's make-up!
