Yesterday was the first day of kindergarten. We had a very good first day. I came home so tired! Let's hope that each day from here on out gets easier. The hardest part is going over all of the routines. All the kids want to do is play. The biggest time consuming activity is showing them how to use the cafeteria. They have never been there before. We also had to go over recess rules. The kids got an early "extra" recess. Today we practice a fire drill as class before the first "official" school one happens.
The kids all made a picture of the first day of kindergarten to take home. I remember when Tim made his. He made a hand print and dictated what he liked about kindergarten.
Speaking of Tim, he LOVES fifth grade. He has raved about it (and his teacher) every day. Driving home from school on Friday and said that he gets the best teachers every year. One year he'd like one that he doesn't like too much so he won't have "heartache" (his words) and cry on the last day.
I expect that I would be very exhausted by the end of the week.
Oh, Dexter is doing well. He is so excited when we get home he almost can't contain his excitement. He has moved shoes though. He doesn't chew them, he just moves them into the living room. :)
