The boys survived their first week of school. I was nervous the last month with Austin because he just wasn't interested in Kindergarten at all. He finally got excited for school last Monday when we were packing his "book pack." He now calls it a book bag. ;) Oh, he's learning so quickly. He didn't give me any trouble taking him to school and you can see by the smiles he was ok. A Mom took pictures of the kids individually that morning in the class and Austin is sitting at his table writing and he looks scared out of his mind; he looked like he could explode into tears at any moment. I'll treasure that pic. I know he has cried a bit in class but not everyday and except for some whining Ms. Kristine says he's doing well. He's definitely interested in school though and doesn't give me any grief about going in the mornings. He comes home singing his number songs, practices his writing on a white board and will ask what letter a word starts with. So if you can't tell, I'm estactic that we've had such a great intro to Kindergarten!
Tommy is also doing well. I've been impressed with his handwriting and how it's improved seemingly. Although maybe I am just comparing his to Austin's?.? Tomorrow I have his first Sacraments meeting. He makes his 1st Reconciliation, Holy Communion, and Confirmation this year. Very big year for young Thomas.
My class is great! I have 15 firecrackers and so far so good. I haven't had any trouble getting to school in the mornings either. ;) Yay!
Hope all of you that have young one's back in school have made a smooth transition into the new year. Fun times!
