Are you kidding me?
Where did the time go that I am now the Mama of a Kindergartener?
How is it that Jakob is so grown up already?
Slow Down! Both of you, please, just slow down.
I think of how much he already knows, and what he will be learning this year, and I am amazed and excited for him. This is a big time for him. And I hope to make it as enjoyable experience as possible. These are the years that will set the bar for his enjoyment of school for possibly the rest of his education career. This is HUGE. I am so lucky that he was looking forward to school, strutted his stuff walking in, and that he was sad that I had to leave. It showed me that he was confident and independent but still needed me a little. Thank you for that Jakob!
Here is my very excited little man on his first day….
Oh….and since I love to commemorate every occasion with cookies….I made these for Jakob to take to his class for snack time….
At then end of the day he was happy to start school, was excited to meet new friends (even though he couldn’t remember ANY of their names), and is looking forward to going back tomorrow.
The only thing missing on this day is Jason. Jakob really misses him and was sad that Daddy couldn’t be here. But the good news is since we are moving mid-school year, Jakob will have another “first day of kindergarten” and Jason can take him that day. ALWAYS look for the silver lining.
