Kindergarten Open House

Today was Riley's Open House for kindergarten! He was so excited and could not wait to meet his teachers! We had some paperwork that needed to get done before visiting his classroom and he was not very happy about waiting. We had to sign-up for the PTA, get his rest mat, put money on his lunch card, get all his bus info and then finally we made out way down the halls to his classroom. He got to meet some classmates and of course his teachers. We met his music teacher also. I was definitely overwhelmed by the whole process.

Our neighborhood is the first stop for the bus....6:46am...needless to say Riley will not be on it in the AM but he will ride home! We will be doing carpool for drop off! I am not sure how many kids will be at the bus stop!

I told Riley that I might be sad on Monday when he goes to school and he told me, "It's ok Mommy, I will be back." Where did the last five years go....I thought I was looking forward to some free time and now I am not so sure!

Grant will start pre-school in September and he will be going for three days! I think it is all finally starting to sink in that I will have a few hours with no children...again not sure how feel about that!

The next few weeks are going to be an adjustment for our family! It will be interesting to see how Grant adjusts to not having his big brother around so much during the week.

I'm praying for you on Monday. Cole's first day was hard for me, but it didn't phase him at all. Riley will love it. I can't wait to hear. How many kids are in his class? Did they all come to the meet and greet at once?

I'll be praying too! It is tougher on the Moms. The first 5 years we have played, read, taught, prayed... you name we've done it with them. Then you put them on the bus and they are fine. However, they are only fine because of the great job you have done! Just think my oldest is going into 5th Grade. YIKES! Time files, so enjoy every minute of it. WELL DONE Mom!!!
