Awesome! Cool! Only 178 more to go!

Well I think she had a good day.

She came running off the bus this afternoon and gave me a big hug. Then she said, "Kindergarten was awesome! It was like preschool - only better!"

And then she proceeded to talk my ear off for the next ten minutes. I couldn't even keep up. Something about a new friend, walking to the bathroom in a line, reading "The Kissing Hand", practicing writing her name, eating lunch and playing in the gym.

And she said she wants to go back. Which is a good thing because not only does she get to. She has to.

When Peter got off the bus on Tuesday afternoon he said, "First grade is cool! The teacher brought Rice Krispie Treats and watermelon! And in first grade we have PE before lunch!"

Food and playtime. He gets it honest.

Glad they are enjoying school.
Oh to be a kid again and get lunch and play time (pe). Maybe I should talk to my boss about getting some pe time in here. LOl, Can you see me answering 911 out of breath from a game of tag or something.

She sounds just like Ethan! I couldn't get him to stop talking about school when I picked him up! Now if the enthusiasm will only keep up all year long!

Glad to hear your kiddos enjoyed their first day of school. Three of our kids go to school tomorrow. They will be there all day, and we will be left with our two youngest at home. It is going to be SO much quieter around here. Can't wait! :)
