Forgive the obnoxious post, he's my baby boy.









This is the most excited Kindergartener I've ever met. He got up, got dressed and told me he didn't want breakfast because he "sure can't be late for the first day of Kindergarten!" (He did eat breakfast by the way) We waited for the school bus, which didn't come, and finally took him to school in the car...he wasn't very happy about that, but its ok, we had planned to meet him at the school anyways, there was no way I was putting him on the bus and waving goodbye.
Once we got to school he couldn't wait to get out on the playground and ran off with some big boys to play kickball. I'm not sure he was supposed to do that, I think he was supposed to stay on the kindergarten playground, oh well. After a few minutes he came up to me and saidm "Mom, when are you leaving?" Make sure and read that with the proper inflection imagined. That was not a concerned "Mom when are you leaving because I don't want you to leave me alone in this strange place with all these new people", that was a "Mom, when are you leaving, 'cuz your crampin' my style" kind of question. When it was time to line up, he was first in line and very patient waiting for all the other kids to get there. Happy 1st Day to Gabe.

somehow I'm not surprised at Gabe's reaction to school! He will have loads of fun. He is so ready to start learning! I remember how badly he felt at not being able to do preschool here.

He really does LOVE it. Sorry about not putting out the note about the new blog. I wasn't sure when I was going to get it going again. But now seems as good a time as any.
