First Day of Kindergarten

Tate started kindergarten this week and it was a little difficult. I know it will get better but he was very nervous as we went into the room and basically wouldn't let us leave. We finally convinved him he would be okay and he let us go. Shortly after we got home the school called and wanted us to know that he was doing fine and we had nothing to worry about. I was so relieved! When I picked him up he seemed happy but had told the teacher he would not be returning the next day. He finally told me he had a pretty good time and would go back but only if he could ride the bus and buy his lunch. Well, he won't be riding the bus for a few weeks and he changed his mind about buying lunch but returned today. He cried a little when I left him but I am sure he was fine afterwards. He has a hard time with transitioning from mom to class, he did this in preschool. His teacher was so nice and talked to me alot after school yesterday and said he had fun and participated in everything they did. I know it will just take some time and he will love it...I hope!

The night before.....

Lunch made- check
Backpack filled- check
Forms filled out- check
Bathed and in bed by 8- check
Kleenex in mommy's purse- check

I think we are ready for tomorrow. He keeps asking me to tell him what it is going to be like and I do my best but the truth is I just don't know. I keep getting a lump in my throat when I think about dropping him off in that room full of strangers but I know God will take care of him. Here's hoping for a great Kindergarten year!

Today is Tate's 6th birthday! I can't believe he is already 6 and starting Kindergarten next week. How time flies! We celebrated his birthday last week with a party at Locomotion Inflatable play. He had a blast with his friends and it was a great end of summer celebration.
