I'm obviously playing catch-up with my posts, but I really never wanted to post about Noah's first days of kindergarten. It was a ridiculously hard time for our entire family, so when I reflect back on that time, my stomach is in a bit of a knot...and then I praise the Lord that we have all grown so much from that first day. Day 1 actually wasn't the problem...
We started our day with the traditional "important day" pancakes.
We took the famous posed picture on the front steps.
We all walked into the school together...
...notice the look on his face!
We got a picture with his sweet and pretty teacher.
We found his desk.
And then David and I left our son with a complete stranger for 7 hours. No tears on Noah's part...I was a COMPLETE mess. They have a Boohoo Breakfast for the parents. I did not participate. I wanted to boohoo in private.
Then, I picked this sweet boy up from school! We made it...
...and then Day 2 happened. I don't like thinking about Day 2 or 3 or 23 for that matter. Noah had a hard time separating from me and there were A LOT of tears shed. I'm pleased to say Noah has made great progress and is a professional kindergarten at this point. I'm so proud of him and I'm proud of myself too. Don't ask me how I'm going to handle dropping two of them off next year!
