Well today was THE day for our oldest Danny.
He started Kindergarten!
All morning and even some of the night before, I could tell he was nervous and not wanting to go, but seeing all the fun things like SNACKS go into his back pack, cheered him up a little. 🙂
This sweet little key chain came in the mail just in time for a fun first day of school surprise!
(Thank you GG!! He LOVED it!!)
Of course little brother had to get in on the picture action too! 🙂
The best thing though, (and what made going to school ok) was his cousins got to go with!! 🙂
I loved that they got to experience their first days of school together! This family lives about two days drive down country on the Ethiopia/Kenya boarder and are here visiting for a few weeks while restocking and letting the kids enjoy school.
Danny’s teacher’s name is Miss Long, and she is SO sweet! I couldn’t have asked for a better kindergarten teacher for Danny (besides you Tanya!! 🙂 ).
This is his little cubby to stash stuff in.
He was SUPER excited that he was at the shark table!! 🙂
and of course a picture of him with Elsa in their classroom.
Doesn’t this just make you wish you were 5 again and you could actually fit up the ladder to go play in the club house!? 🙂
But… all too soon it was time for me to leave my sweet boy!
This is where I lost it! I turned around one last time to see him standing in the doorway trying so hard to be brave and not cry! I just wanted to run back and take him in my arms and go home!!
Today was the first day of him growing up!
SO proud of you Daniel!!!
