First Day of School for Ryan

Well, here's my Kindergartner. He had a great first day! I was so proud of him. He turned into such a BIG boy today.

All the kids meet in the gym first, at 8:05. They find where their class is and then each class gets in a line. The principle comes in and says a few words and then prays with them before they are dismissed to their classrooms.

At 2:30 I went to pick him up, but instead of going in to get him, he comes out to me now. When the teacher outside sees my car in line at the curb, she lets the others inside know, and they send him out. This is what the "big kids" do.

Tomorrow, Kevin starts Pre-K. I really can't believe it. I'll be sure to bring the camera again!

So is Ryan going to a private school? I'm guessing since you said the principal prayed. :) Tell him we are SOOOO proud of him (and Kevin, too!!!) and give all three big Aunt Carrie smooches. :)
Ellie's first preschool day was Wednesday and she cried at the end because while they were drawing self-portraits, she realized she didn't know how to draw toes.

What a big boy! Before you know it, he'll be in line carrying a suitcase to study overseas or maybe go on a missions trip! They grow up so fast! Enjoy every day of their childhood. It's all so precious. PopPop
