First Day of School

The kids had their first day of school yesterday. I never thought that this day would come, I can't believe they are in Kindergarten. Josh has been telling me he just wants to stay with me and that he will miss me if he goes to school. He has been very nervous about starting school and has been informing us for the last few months that he is not going.

Yesterday morning he came out of his room all dressed and ready to go, and he was very excited. By the time we got to school he wanted to walk in by himself so he could "show Jane where their class is". After he got into his classroom he left Kgordee and I for dead, he didn't even notice that we were there for a few minutes making sure they were settled.

Jane was great, she found one of her friends from preschool and let the teacher know that she wanted to sit by her. Bless their teachers heart she moved kids around so that Jane could sit with her friend.

Josh and Jane both had a hard time coming out of class, Josh because he thought he left his monster sweater in the room and Jane because she was frumpy she couldn't take the bus home. We found Josh's sweater and went home, though neither of the twins were very excited to talk about school. When we asked them about it both said they liked their class, teacher and the kids but they didn't seem very impressed.

Today the kids had a little more enthusiasm for school so we will take that as a good sign.
