The most important event this week is that Christopher started Kindergarten. Yeah!! I wouldn’t be an official blog mom if I didn’t at least show you one picture. The whole experience was great. He was excited to go to school, he was excited to go on the bus. He even woke up early without a fight…LOL! I knew ahead of time I was going to follow the bus to see what the route was and how long he was actually on the bus before it arrived at school.
The bus came that morning and he got on and waved goodbye. Done. No looking back, no tears on his part. I got in the car to follow him and then I cried. I knew I would. It is so bittersweet to come the next chapter in our lives, the school years. As a parent you want them to learn and grow and explore new things. But you also want to keep them little forever.
The school did a great job of organizing the whole arrival process. A teacher came and took the Kindergarteners off of the bus first and lined them up outside their classroom. He was the RED room so he was to look for the red balloons outside the door. The good thing is that there is a door from outside the building right into the Kindergarten classroom. We watched him line up and got to see him go inside the classroom and sit at his table. I could not have asked for a better experience.
I think the only downside to the morning was that is was raining. I had to try and hold Anthony, hold the umbrella, takes pictures and try to video. Needless to say, there weren’t too many pictures…LOL!
Yes, Anthony needed to wear his backpack to walk Christopher out to the bus stop :0)
The harder adjustment is going to be on Anthony. He is so used to being with Christopher all day that I think he is going to have to learn to play alone. He will at least get more one on one mommy time. Well, until he starts nursery school next week. I guess I will be crying again.
Now, hopefully we can resume our regularly scheduled life.....
