The First Day of Kindergarten!
Today, I hope you had fun. Today, I hope you made a friend that is as funny as you and that you crack each other up all year long. Today, I hope you learn that you love school. Today, I missed you.
Drop off went smoothly. This year, since your brother has already gone to that school for three years, we were greeted by a lot of friendly faces which made the first day less scary. We had quite a bit of time for you to play before the bell rang and right before you went in Daddy found you a “good luck” praying mantis. We were able to come into class and say goodbye to you there. You did great. You seemed a bit quiet taking it all in, but there were no tears from you. I teared up, but you being so brave made me brave, too.
Liam, you are funny, sweet, sensitive, loving, quiet, loud, inquisitive, peaceful, affectionate, and kind. I have loved having you all to myself these last 5 1/2 years, but I know you are about to get the tools you will need to continue down life’s path. We are beyond proud and lucky to have you to call our son!
