Happy Tuesday. Well, my baby is starting kindergarten today. I. Can't. Believe. It.
Wasn't he just in diapers? Weren't we just in playgroups?? I've been scrapping about it a lot. Therapy? Maybe. Does it help? Not, really. The good thing is that he's only going half day. And he is just so excited. He has several friends in his class that were in preschool with him. Plus, he's an old pro at this school thing. I'm looking forward to being a volunteer in his room one afternoon a week. I can finally put my teaching skills to use. :) His teacher seems wonderful and his room looks great. So, we'll have to see how we do at drop off time. I'm meeting my friend, Donna, after she drops off her twins at their first day. We are going to comiserate at Starbucks. I volunteered to go back and help the teacher with dismissal, so I get to head back earlier than normal.
So, here is one of the pages I created about the kindergarten thing. I was so excited to be asked to be a Guest Designer over at the Design Experiment. It's a really fun challenge blog - be sure to check it out. Their prompt this week is to interview someone. Here's the page I made after I interviewed Ryan about starting kindergarten.
Journaling: Your thoughts on starting kindergarten (interviewed 8-18-08)
You hope your teacher has long blonde hair. You hope that there are Legos in your classroom. You want to learn about pigs and you want to learn how to write words that you don't already know. Something you're worried about is that they won't have a snack that you like. You want your new friends to know that you like to be silly with your friends. Most importantly, you are excited for your new adventure! I pray hat all your kindergarten dreams come true.
Thanks for stopping by and wish me luck. I'm not sure I'm ready to be the mom of a
'school aged' kid.
