1st Day of Kindergarten, wow time flies

Well the day came. I have seriously been stressing about this for about 2 years, I know a little crazy. But I knew it was a big deal and I just wanted to make sure he was ready and would be ok. Yeah, totally LOVED it.

 We tried really hard to get him to bed early, but I think he was just a little too excited so he was up pretty late. But when Adam woke him he came right out for breakfast and was ready to go! We had pancakes, got dressed and ready.  Of course his sister's were not quite so happy to be woken up early. We took some pictures be fore we left. He was so excited!

  I know I'm a little biased, but they are just so cute!
 On the way I asked Ethan if he was nervous, he said yes because of all the new friends that were there.
We got to school and walked up to the cone and I told him where to go and he went, didn't even look back to see if I was still there, really Ethan? Your in kindergarten, your suppose to still need me!!


 He went right in, got his backpack hung up and found his desk and went to work.


 I love this picture, he looks so grown up
 As soon as we got in Ava started yelling at everyone and screaming and throwing things, she was not happy. She wouldn't even give Ethan a hug. Malia of course did. She seemed a little worried that we were leaving him but she got over it quickly when we got home and she realized that she can play with any toy she wants to!
Before I left, I went over to talk to him and tell him bye.  I told him I was leaving but that I would be back in 3 hours to pick him up. I THOUGHT he would say, no mom don't go, but all he said is, ok mom bye. What the heck? No sad face, no worried face, no "please stay mom", I got nothing. Then I told him to give me a hug and kiss, and he said, ugh mom. Seriously child? In  kindergarten? You've got to give me to AT least 3rd grade before getting embarrassed of me! But I guess I should be glad that he went in so well and was totally ok. Such a big boy!

Do you see how I'm saying bye and he just turns around, like get out of here mom? What is up with that?

This is when I picked him up. He was so excited! As we walked to the car, he said, mom that was so much fun, I want to go the next day too. He talked about school all throughout the day and every time he said, that place was so much fun mom. I'm so glad he loved it, little sad that he was totally fine with me leaving. But I guess he's growing up faster than I thought, ugh, still can't believe my baby boy is in school!

Well, just think of it this way. You've been leaving him since he went into nursery, so he's had lots of practice!

I'm glad the first day went well- here's to many more good days!!

I love hearing from a mom's perspective about the first day of school : ) I can't believe he is in kindergarten! I still remember sitting in the lounge at school when you were pregnant talking about what you were going to name him...I'm glad he is coming to Cottonwood so we will see you this year : )

Carter just said, "hey, that's Efan!" Loved seeing you guys in Vegas. Crazy that he is old enough to start kindergarten. He looks so handsome!
