I have known this day was coming, but nothing can fully prepare you for the day your first child goes to Kindergarten. It's unbelievable, really. It seems like we just brought him home from the hospital. How have 5 years gone by? How did he turn into this big boy? His own little person? I'm filled with memories today, with happiness, sadness, excitement, anxiety, all wrapped into one. I can't wait to go pick him up and hear how his day was. I wonder how he'll ever find his classroom tomorrow when we drop him off in the carpool line instead of walking him in (it's WAY in the back of the school). But I know he'll be fine. My dad says he'll have them all organized by the end of the day, and he's probably right. Most of all, I know it's going to be different! He'll learn so much, and he's so ready for that!
So, here he was this morning on the way out to the car. And just outside his classroom getting ready to go in.

They put their lunch boxes in the bin as they go into the room (notice Molly right behind him).

I call this "Cheek suck-in" which is what he does when he's nervous. So sweet.
And Miss Molly is just loving having the house all to herself! She's been running all around, getting into everything and being extra silly.
I couldn't help myself! She said "Mama, take my picture!" and as soon as I pressed down the shutter, she stuck her finger in her nose.
And on that note . . . Only 2 more hours til I find out how the first day in Kindergarten went!

3 people had nice things to say:

Great pics of the day! You are right about those feelings of 'where did the time go'-- with the first child entering Kindergarten- I just experienced the strange feeling of having the LAST child enter Kinder-- Now I have an empty nest all day long til 3:10! :)

I can't wait to read many more blog entries about Matthew's school adventures! Enjoy your alone time with Molly-- It won't be long before she has her first day too!
