Today is Zachary's First Day of School!
He really wanted to wear his new Transformers t-shirt (which we could only find in one size too big) and check out those awesome Iron Man shoes. He saw them on tv and made sure we went to Stride Rite when we went school shopping.
His school is connected to our little subdivision, so we only have about a 5 minute walk and don't have to cross any main streets. It was so cute that as we were headed out another little girl was walking along with her parents. Zachary turned to her and said, "It looks like we are going to the same school!" Zachary always tells Geno "We are best buds. And best buds stick together no matter what!"
The best buds headed to school.
Putting all of his supplies into the group pile:
He found his cubby. He is #14. I remember Uncle Mark being #14 and his daddy's football number was #14!
The first week will be spent getting used to the school rules and the class procedures. They start off the morning in circle singing "Rise and Shine."
Hunter really wanted to go to school today, too, but maybe next year a couple of days a week. As soon as we walked out of the school, he turned around in his stroller, put his arms up and said, "Hold me, PaPa!" I guess he will be happy to have PaPa all to himself for a few hours each day :o)
This was my 5th time to take a child to his First Day of Kindergarten and Geno's 3rd. He was so concerned that things would be okay for Zachary.
(There might even have been a few tears.)
He will be just fine, PaPa...
