Kindergarten Here We Come

It's official, we're parents of a kindergartner! Jack's first day was yesterday and he had a great time.

He was excited to meet his teacher, hang his back pack in his locker and see his friends.

Jack was so brave. Nathan and I drove him to school, took a couple of pictures in front of the school's sign and took Jack to his classroom. Jack got to hang his back pack in his locker, put his lunch in the "green bin" and head outside to see his friends. At first, not recognizing anyone, Jack was a little nervous to run and play. I spotted a boy that Jack had played hockey with this past winter and pointed him out to Jack. He was off and running!

Nathan and I stood there for a second and watched Jack play, I then proceeded to cry, cry cry. I really did think I would be fine, but I have to say, it's a bit emotional.

Jack's second day was great. He was excited to go to music class and do some art projects. Today was his first time going to "kids club". It's an after school program that the kids go to until their parents pick them up. He was able to play with his friends and explore the school a little.

Our little boy is growing up very quickly. We're excited to hear about all the things he's going to learn and we know he'll have lots of fun!
