Our 'baby' Mike (he does NOT want to be called 'Mikey' at school) starts kindergarten today! I cannot believe it, wasn't it just yesterday he was riding in a sling, firmly attached to his mom? He was very excited, woke up about a million times last night and was all dressed and ready to go when I arrived at 6:15 am. All the boys were chipper and headed out with backpacks weighing about 40 lbs (you have to provide a LOT of school supplies nowadays). Mom and I peeked in Mike's classroom window after they all went in, and he was carefully observing his classmates, then doing what they did :-) He is a little concerned that his desk is ALL GIRLS, but I think he'll be fine.
The Gang all ready to head out (for some reason Mike insisted on wearing the Power Rangers mask for pictures)
Trudging up the hill to school.
It's all fun and games until you have to get in line for class -- the line of kindergartners was DEAD SERIOUS, so funny!
