We packed the backpack, laid out the new school clothes, washed and showered to get him ready for the big day BUT none of that prepared his mama for him entering kindergarten. As I walked my son into his classroom it hit me emotionally that this was it. He was here in elementary school now and forever in public school for the next 12 years. Was I ready to let him go? Whether I was ready or not, it was here and the smell of crayola crayons and freshly sharpened pencils only solidified the fact that my son was now a kindergartner.

He was so excited (a little nervous too) to start the school year. We talked about the bus, his friends, and how the next day would be, trying to iron out any nervousness he had the night before. When morning came he was ready and enthusiastic to head to school.  We took a few snapshots before leaving although Taylor thought this part utterly boring and stated "why do we have to take pictures mom?"

Welcome to kindergarten buddy!

I am so proud of you and look forward to hearing all your fun stories about your adventures in Kindergarten.

Favorite parts of his first day: The smelly stickers, riding on the bus, recess, the math toys and reading the David books and having a great first day.

Sounds like it was a successful way to start his school year!
