First Day of Kindergarten

Today opened a new chapter in Goliath's life as he ventured off to school for the first time.
He was excited! He didn't seem nervous or anxious at all. The whole family went together to drop him off, and for once the little brothers were seen more than they were heard.

Goliath worked hard yesterday on a drawing for his new teacher. He colored a firetruck for her, then folded it up and put it in an envelope with her name carefully written on the outside. He carried it in his new backpack and gave it to Ms. L first thing. She properly admired his talent and welcomed him to kindergarten!

He took his seat at his little desk and went to work on a raccoon picture. He barely glanced up and mumbled "I love you, too" when we left. He came home with a backpack full of papers and an hour's worth of stories--who he played with, what books they read, and best of all: he wants to go back tomorrow.

Soooo happy for you that his day went well. The pictures are so great! What a big boy! I'm glad his teacher is what you prayed for. I wish him well. You seemed to handle it well too mommy. Good job!
