Today was Conner’s first day of Kindergarten. Well, his official first day, but not really. It consisted of he and I going to his classroom along with all the other kids and parents. They found their desk, did an art project, had a treat, got to know their teacher and classroom, and then went on a tour of the school with the principal while the parents stayed in the classroom and got the low-down on Kindergarten.
Conner goes back later this week for testing, and then starts attending school for real next week. It’s kind of a bummer, because Conner is SO excited for school. He has been counting down for 3 weeks now, so obviously he would rather just keep going all this week. He told Dave and I that he wished he go to Kindergarten all his life because he just loves it!
Ready or not – so begins our life in the public school system . . . . .
Conner excitedly drawing his self-portrait. He found his desk and pencil box and so far his favorite item is the pencil/crayon sharpener. I think he spent more time sharpening his (brand new) crayons than actually coloring with them!
