"Maybe We'll Go on a Field Trip to Space!"

I'm not quite sure what's up with this goofy smile, but this boy is one EXCITED kid! Kindergarten starts on Wednesday morning and he can hardly wait. Tonight we took him to meet his teacher, whom he barely had the time of day for. He really took his time exploring the classroom and seeing all they had to offer. His favorite thing was, of course, a science book. He told his teacher he LOVES science and she told him that her mommy is a real scientist and likes to give her fun ideas for science. Gabe told us the other afternoon during his special Mommy/Daddy/Gabe lunch that he really hoped he got a teacher who loves science as much as he does, so hopefully this is a good match. This is the first school I've dealt with that didn't ask for a description of my child's interests, so we may have just gotten lucky. His teacher also took the opportunity to introduce him to the "Treasure Box"... I think he has his eye on a glow-in-the-dark dinosaur, so hopefully he'll be good enough to earn a trip to the treasure box.

I'm so glad to hear Gabe's teacher and him seem to be a good match. Hope we're so lucky. I'm sure he'll LOVE school. I'll bet his teacher will earn the time of day in no time at all.
