Kenny’s first day at school

By reeset / On / In Family

A milestone for Kenny (seems we are having a few at the house lately) — it was his first day at kindergarten.  He’s been so, so, so excited about today.  Last week we went in and met his teacher and his teacher got to see first hand how much hard work Kenny has been doing with Alyce.  His teacher, Ms. Young, had him count as high as he could (and stopped him at 50), tested him with his colors, shapes, letters, sounds, writing his name and some simple words.  He did great.  To be honest, I didn’t even realize how much work he and Alyce had done together.  I was really impressed. 

Anyway, today, we took him to school (and we will be picking him back up in about an hour) and he was bouncing off the walls.  I really hope he has a good time today.  He loves to learn, to read, to be with other kids — I just hope that he stays excited for school.

So pictures — I do have pictures.  Here’s a few we took before we went to school (he wanted a picture of his backpack as well):

And then we took some pictures at the school:

He’s getting so grown up.  I have a hard time putting into words how proud I was of him today.  So grown up.
