First day highlights...

Well, Peter's first day of Kindergarten is in the books.
Here are a few of the highlights from his first day:

He was excited because he had a Tootsie Roll in his backpack that the teacher said he could have when he got home. That was the very first thing he told me when he got off the bus.

He got to play at the Lego table but was a little disappointed that it had Duplo blocks instead of real Legos. "Duplo blocks are for little kids!" he told me.

A little girl cried and then threw up. I'm not quite sure whether she was crying so much she threw up or whether her stomach hurt so she was crying and then threw up. Either way, that's not exactly the best way to start Kindergarten.

A little boy basically cried whenever he didn't get his way and was disruptive to the class. Not sure yet whether he was upset about his first day or whether he was just a spoiled brat. I guess time will tell.

And this little boy's behavior may change when he realizes he's going to get some bananas taken away and not get to pick a prize from the prize chest at the end of the week. Apparently punishment in Kindergarten is serious stuff!

Peter said he made a friend at the Lego table but he can't remember his name because it's too long.

I can't wait to find out this kid's name. It's probably Tom.

Before bath time tonight, Peter told me that the two best things about Kindergarten were riding the bus and lunchtime.

I was hoping he would say his favorite things were learning to read really long words and writing cursive but I guess we'll save that for tomorrow.

Oh well. At least he didn't throw up.

Although as I was tucking him in, he said his stomach felt like he swallowed a tooth. Then he said he was nervous that he couldn't find his class.

Tomorrow may be his day...

What a day!!

Poor little guy...he was too excited to be nervous today...I hope he can get through tomorrow with 'Tom' ok. May call for a little 'celebration' after school...???

My second oldest starts Wednesday, I'm hopeful for him, we explored the school today and I think he'll be fine, but it's so hard to watch them reach this age of being able to do something without me.

Praying he does not get sick.

Adorable insight.

Love that he liked lunch time and the bus ride best.

Sounds like Peter had a great first day! If the new friends name isn't Tom it's probably Sam.

Mari said...

You've captured his first day really well. You need to make sure you save this with the picture. I love it!

Wow, what a day he had. I love your comment about the kid with the long name probably being named Tom. :) And how awful to throw up on the first day of school. That would be memorable, of course, but not in a good way!

Hope day two is a good one, too. :)

I am so glad he had a good first day! Now that the first day is over it will get easier from here!

And momma survived too -- that's a plus! (unless you threw up...did you??)

How sweet. Grant comes hopping off that bus every day excited to tell me "first day of art" "first day of music.." etc. He is so cute.

I can't wait to hear the boys name, too. It may be two syllables like Andy, though, give him some credit.

He look so grown up there. I am so glad he liked it. The legos would have been where Eli would be the whole time.

Lisa said...

Yay for Peter! I'm glad both you & Peter survived the first day - it sounds like it was a good one ;)

Rebekah said...

sounds like a typical school day- That poor girl will be teased when she is a senior that she puked on the first day of school.

Gracie starts pre-school Wednesday. I know she will like it, but I'm a bit nervous as to what her reaction will be when I have to 'leave' her there.

Steph said...

Sounds like you and Peter both had a great first day! Good for both of you. I love this milestone...

Jaina said...

Aww, sounds like fun. (minus the throwing up girl and the bratty boy) I hope his second day is just as wonderful!
