My little boy went to Kindergarten today!
Well, it is official, Will is a kindergartner. I cannot believe it, where has the time gone? Last night, I listened to him cry himself to sleep because he did not want to go. He was afraid that "they" would not like him and that "the letters and numbers were going to be harder in Kindergarten". This morning, he was upside down in his bed with his head under the covers and he said that he was going to stay in bed until 3:30. After much prodding, we finally got him dressed and suddenly he was not scared anymore. He walked into school and the classroom, and did not even cry when we left him! I cannot believe how brave he was. I am so proud of him.
Last night, I made this little sucker cover to hide in his lunch box. He wanted me to make a paper airplane, but I did not think that that would be such a great idea for the first day of school! This morning, he wanted to know what his surprise was. I wouldn't show it to him, but I told him that I had made him a card. He looked up at me with a huge smile and said, "you are the sweetest Mommy in the world!" He absolutely loves getting handmade cards from me. I used Sweet Centers, a new stamp set from the Holiday mini catalog (available September 1st). If you have not received a copy of it from me in the mail, let me know and I will get one to ya! It is such a wonderful feeling to brighten someone's day with a simple project created by you. I can't wait to pick him up and hear what he has to say about his first day of school!
