First Day of Kindergarten

    Newer Older

    Yesterday was Cooper's first day of's hard to believe how quickly they grow up.

    The drop-off went well. His teacher let all of the parents stay for the first 20-30 minutes while she met everyone and let the kids warm up. Given that we had all 3 kids and Cooper kept telling us how boring this school was, there wasn't any time to get sentimental about the event. The teacher even read "The Kissing Hand", which could have been a tear-jerker.

    Before we know it, he'll be asking for keys to the car...

      Time flies indeed. I wish I have a way to slow it down to enjoy the kids a bit more at this age.

      What a great way to remember the first day of Kindergarten. My older boy starts kindergarten next month, the younger one just started preschool this past Monday. They grow up so quickly.

      Thanks everyone. His expression isn't the best, but at least it will be a nice reminder of his first day.

      Caden will be starting kindergarten next year, but we still have one more to go after that ;)

      It's such a cliché, but so have to stop and enjoy the time now because it goes by in such a flash.

      Exciting times! It fun and nerve-racking to see them growing up so quickly.
