First Day of Kindergarten
We awoke about 6:15 with showers and began the morning ritual. Cavett asked for biscuits, so Dad obliged and even cut them in the shape of apples. Everything went smoothly and a big thanks goes out to aunt Amber for coming over to watch Kendrick.
As it turns out, after I waited 30 minutes in the car rider line, I picked him up and this was what I gathered from our conversation and his day.
#1- He didn't get to play 4 square or hop-scotch.
#2- He learned about the rules today. There will be lots of rules at the beginning and a few in the middle and less at the end.
#3- Music was the favorite and he got to write his name on the really cool, new-fangled digital "overhead projector."
#4- He made one friend, but can't remember his name.
#5- He couldn't find the snack I sent him in his backpack.
Still a good day with a great report on behavior. Let's hope this keeps up. I know the teachers have to establish rules and bounderies, but I'm ready to dig into the learning. Bring on the homework! I know, I know.... I'll be dreading it later on.
