We had a teacher meet and greet day for the boys’ kindergarten year and I’m confident they’re ready for school to start. They showed me “I got this Mom” with their actions when we arrived to the school. Immediately they were talking to other students, excited to see a few familiar faces and chatting with new kids sitting next to them.
It’s the first year the boys will be in different rooms and I think they’ll be just fine – the classes are on the same schedule and they’ll be just across the hall from each other. Now the test is whether I can keep two sets of names and details straight. Time to dust off my brain!
We arrived and I set up each kid in their room and then just stood back and let them do their thing. I went back and forth between each class and neither seemed to notice nor care when I wasn’t in their room.
It should be a smooth transition.
Graham gets to be in the “Pink” room.
And Miles gets to be in the “Green” room.
Alice even got in on a bit of the fun, sitting in her familiar waiting chair looking at books and we walked down the hall to say hello to the teacher the boys had for the previous two years. We had a few moments together to talk about how much everyone has grown.
Here’s Miles in front of his cubby – a new home for his stuff for the next year – the kindergarteners get to have their cubbies on the top row!
We have a few weeks to go until the first day of school which is a GOOD thing because they start twenty minutes earlier than last year so we’ll need to start practicing our get up routine before the week of school.
