1st Day of Kindergarten!

Banks officially became a Kindergartener today!!! We got to “Meet our Teacher” on Tuesday night and drop off all our school supplies {notice how Mary Reese “decorated” them}! Banks was really excited to find out the 4 of his friends from Pre-K were in his new class.
Here is the big Kindergartener getting ready to leave for his first day of school {notice the new “big boy” backpack, lunchbox and size 1 extra-wide tennis shoes}:

Jody, Mary Reese and I walked him in since it was the first day. As soon as we got to Ms. Lowery’s room, he knew to put his backpack and lunchbox in his “locker”:

Then he found him a seat across from Shakiah {I think he was ready for us to leave so he could get on with his first day}:

I kind of got a little teary-eyed walking into the school, but it quickly went away when I saw all the chaos! I think it also helped that no one else was crying and that it really was his second year at the school!

The Kindergarteners only go to school until noon on the first 2 days! Here he is waiting for me to pick him up:He survived the first day {I am not sure I will survive the carpool line…it was bad today and only the 4 Kindergarten classes were involved. I think a good book or magazine will be a must before I jump in line}!

Yea Banks! I know you are an awesome kindergartener. I wish you were in my class to teach some of my kids how to hang up their bookbag and sit down in their seat! Maybe you can come one day to teach them.
