Our big KINDERGARTNER!!!!!
I still (a week into school) can't believe this time has come! My Oliver is in Kindergarten. My Oliver is in Elementary School! Where did the time go? When did he grow up? Why did it happen so fast? Sigh. It has been a hard realization for me, but he is loving every minute of it! The first day of school he was a little nervous, but came running out with the biggest smile on his face and threw his arms around me and gave me the biggest hug! It was like he was thanking me for letting him go to Kindergarten! (As if I really had a choice!) (Well technically Kindergarten is optional in Utah so I guess I did!) Every day since he has the same huge grin and I get the same big hug! I'm loving that! Oliver's favorite part of Kindergarten is recess (no surprise there)! And his second favorite thing so far is when he got to draw a picture of him and his teacher on the white board in the front of the classroom! So far I really like his teacher, Mrs. Bowman. She is very good at communicating with the parents via a weekly email, and has already asked for some volunteers in the classroom this coming Thursday. I did get a little teary on the first day of school when he walked away, but have been doing fine since then! I think it's going to be a great year! We started a few traditions, a blessing from Roberto the night before school starts and rootbeer floats after school on the first day!
