(Pre-requisite to story: anyone remember last year? Cherub 2 waited everyday for a week. No kindergarten bus. It is not like we live in the woods or something either.)
First Day of Kindergarten from Cherub 3
8:10am: Posing with cherubs 1&2. I am ALL ready. I can't' wait to get on that bus after lunch! Backpack on, ready to go! (Just three hours to go.)
11:25am: I am sooooo excited! The time has come! I can go on the bus! Mom & I played eye-spy while waiting. It is fun.
20 minutes later: Still smiley, posing with Nana & Pops for pictures. Bus soon...
40 minutes later: Sick of waiting, cherub 3 plops himself in the middle of the road.
50 minutes later: Daddy, where is the busssssss? Why isn't it comingggggg?
51 minutes later: In the car, zoom to school, wave bye to Mom & Dad! Mom & Dad spend 20 minutes in the office trying to work out the kinks.
Despite the bus follies, cherub 3 LOVED his first day of school yesterday. Let's pray for the bus to pick us up today!
Favorite things about his first day of school:
1)Recess (it was really fun)
2)Gym (they have their OWN hockey stuff, even though I didn't use it yet)
First Day of Kindergarten from Mom
He started school this morning,
And he seemed so very small.
As I walked there beside him
In the Kindergarten hall...
And I must share my little boy
With friends and work and play;
He's not a baby anymore-
He's in Kindergarten today.
