Kindergarten Gets Two Thumbs Up!!!

Jackson had his first day of kindergarten today and he loved it! When I dropped him off this morning he looked so handsome! Both Jeremy and I took him to his classroom, got him settled in, gave him hugs and kisses, and said goodbye. He looked a little apprehensive as we were leaving, and I made it all the way outside his classroom before the tears started falling. I only cried for a minute though! I was pretty proud of both of us for doing so good!

When I got Jackson at the daycare this afternoon he practically tackled me with a hug. 

Me: “Did you have a good day at kindergarten?”

Jackson: “No, I had a GREAT day!”

There were only six kids in his room today because of their staggered start dates, and they got to do a scavenger hunt around the school to help them explore everything. Jackson especially loved playing on the playground, eating pizza in the cafeteria and he said that Mrs. Smith was really nice.

I’m so glad that Jackson had a wonderful day. I’ve never had a day pass more slowly than today, with me watching the clock waiting until time to go get him. He’s super excited about going back on Thursday, and I guess I can’t ask for any more than that!

Enjoy the pics from his first day of kindergarten!

Jackson with Mrs. Smith

Jackson told me that he wants to pray for Mrs. Smith, for her to stay safe, that she helps him learn a lot this year, that they have lots of fun, and that she stays just as nice as she was today.

I’m pretty sure I’ll be praying for the same things!!!
