Today was Ben's first day of kindergarten. (It was basically an orientation for all the parents and a chance for the kids to meet each other and the teacher.) Ben told me last night when I was putting him to bed that he didn't know if he would be able to sleep because he was so excited to start kindergarten. He was dancing around the house all morning, counting down the minutes until we left. When I took his picture this morning, he asked me if I could take one of his backpack because "it's so cool!" Emma was having a hard time watching Ben get ready to go. She kept asking if she could go to kindergarten and Jake and I let her know only two more years until it's her turn. Thank goodness she doesn't have a real concept of time because the answer "two years" seemed to console her. The last picture is of Ben sitting with his class. His teacher, Mrs. Armknecht (arm-connect), asked "Who is excited for kindergarten?" It took a couple seconds for anyone to raise their hand but then eventually all hands were raised. I think Ben's teacher is wonderful and have heard only good things about her. I'm excited for him... my big boy!
