The day before the first day of Kindergarten

My 5-year-old said to me this morning, "Mom, guess what tomorrow is".

"It's the first day of Kindergarten."

"Yep."

"Are you excited?"

He hesitated. Every other time we've talked about it, he's been really excited, but this time he seemed nervous... "Are you nervous?"

"A little."

I reminded him that I got to stay with him on the first day, and that his teacher (who came over last week and brought him a balloon) is really nice. His worried look left and he ran off to play with his brother.

I'm excited for him. It's going to be weird to have him gone every morning, but hopefully it will be a good experience for all of us. I'm a little worried about the 2-year-old, because he kind of seems lost when his brother is gone. It will be fun to walk to the school to pick up his brother though.

I was at the school today, getting ready for Back To School Night (yes, I've made those fabulous posters agian this year) and I saw your boy's face on the bulletin board! He looks so cute! Make sure you stop and take a look at it tomorrow - it's in the hallway right outside his room (by the lunchroom).

I can't wait for school to start! I love it, and we have been doubly blessed with fabulous teachers this year.

If your baby gets bored, Little Miss can come over to play.
