1st Day of Kindergarten

Boogs started kindergarten this week. He seems to be adjusting well. He was very nervous on the first day of school. When he arrived at his classroom, he walked right in and went to the lockers to find the one with his name on it. Unfortunately, his teacher had spelled both his first and last name incorrectly on his locker, name tag and desk plate. Boogs went to his spot and found a connect the dot worksheet on his desk. He immediately started working on it. He got so involved with it that he barely paid attention when his dad and I left the room. After school, he got in the car and said, "Momma, that was not that long of a day. It is still sunny outside. I thought I had to go to school until bedtime." I guess that was one of the things that was making him so nervous, thinking he would not have time for anything else in a day except school. He said he had a good day, "But, we did not really get to the hard stuff, yet. That is what freaks me out!"
Getting Daddy to fix his hair "just right".

Before school, we read the book The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn. It is about a
little scared raccoon going to school for the first time
and how his mom gave him a kiss to think of her throughout
the day. So I made Boogs a "Kissing Hand" lunch.
Lunchbox full of love. Turns out his teacher
read The Kissing Hand to the class today.

Ready to go to school.
