1st Day of School
Cobb had his first day of Kindergarten yesterday at Norton Elementary. What a big boy. He was excited, I was nervous. He "knew" all there was to know, I still had questions. He was brave & thrilled to be there, and I cried as we walked down the hall away from the classroom. Yes, I admit it. My little boy did MUCH better than I did. He had a great day. He told me that it's okay to miss him, and I told him I was excited for him.
We drove over to Stacey & Jeff's house to drop off Charly & Ridge. Then Rob, Cobb, and I made our way over to Norton. Here he is ready to go with his new backpack!

Picking him up was my favorite part of the day.
As we walked home, he told me all about school, what parts were funny, what was hard (lunch), and what song he learned in music. He was very chatty! I asked him if his teacher was fun. He said, "well, she's fun, but not very fun." This is probably good because it means she is fun, but maybe consistent in discipline as well. I like this. When we got home we had fresh baked cookies & milk to celebrate.
This morning he was up and ready to go for the 2nd day. He was excited to go back. And the walk to school took us only 10 minutes. The only problem was that I didn't bring my license so I couldn't walk him down to his class. Charly & Ridge were disappointed b/c they wanted to see Cobb's big Kindergarten class. So we sang, "Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love ya, tomorrow! Your only a day away!"
Gotta go pick up my big boy!!! So very proud of my Kinderman.
