First Day Highlights

No name on the board, YEA! Teacher read two books one about a raccoon who was afraid to leave his mom so she kissed the palm of his hand for him to remember her while at school and then another book about fear of kindergarten. One little boy and one little girl got their names on the board, OOPS!

She got in the wrong stall at the bathroom once and the toilet paper was too far away and she had to go "wike dis" (demonstrating the pants around the knees walk). They played outside but they only had slides, swing that she didn't get on because she couldn't touch the ground and monkey bars on which her grammie told her she didn't need to be. She didn't eat all of her lunch but she said she had enough.

Someone said something about her "Toad Suck Daze 2009" tshirt (festival tee) but she couldn't remember who or what they said. I asked if what they said at the time made her feel good or bad, and she said good, so I guess it wasn't something bad.

The sprinkle donut was definitely a celebration donut. But she did say she didn't need to go back today. Oh well, I told her she had at least another 20 years to go, heh.

Wow...I am shocked she told you all of that aren't you? Usually, when you ask what they did during the day...they say "nothing". lol

Praising Him that she felt safe and secure. I am so proud of her....and you too Mom!

That book is called the Kissing hand and it is great... it is one of our faves. because of that book we have a hand kissing tradition before school.

Glad to hear the first day was a hit. Now, what are you going to do about the next 20 years? good luck!

Oh bless her sweet heart! After Landon's first day of kindergarten (12 years ago..yikes!), he announced that he didn't ever have to go back because he already knew his ABC's!! LOL

So proud of G and her mommy!
