A Bittersweet Evening…

Yes, as I sit and type this Johnathan is getting tucked in for sweet dreams leading to his first day of Kindergarten. I can’t believe that it is already here. Tomorrow he will take the lunch we packed together and the book bag filled with blankets and other necessities of a K grader, load the bus for Overdale Elementary.

It will be the first time he rides a bus of any kind. Johnathan is super excited to see what lay ahead on this next step in the journey called school.

He carefully picked out his blue buttoned down shirt and khaki shorts and laid them on the end of the loveseat so as to make easy access on the dash to the bathroom in the morning. He also completed the “assignments” his teacher Ms. Dorer gave him at the open house on Friday.

They mostly consisted of reading to him and him drawing things like his “favorite thing to do” but he enjoyed them. We carefully packed them in to the back pack as we explained that he will be doing a lot of that kind of work in school. He is wide eyed and ready to absorb all that is kindergarten.So good night sweet prince. We are so proud of you, even if we wish you could stay who you are right now forever.
