Colton the Kindergartner

We made it! Colton started Kindergarten today. The morning went well. He was excited but also a little nervous. He almost cried when I went to leave but was such a big boy and held it in.By the time I left he was doing a puzzle at the table and was fine. I, on the other hand, was a wuss. Yes- I exited his classroom and cried like a baby. Uh huh, in the hallway. (He didn't see the tears.) My stomach was in knots all day. This letting go stuff is for the birds!
Thankfully, when I got there to pick him up this afternoon, I got a huge hug and the first three things he said with a smile on his face were:
1. "Mamaaaaa- finally!"
2. "I have sure been missing you!"
3. "I had a grrrreat day!!"
When I asked him what his favorite part of the day was he said "all of it!" His teacher's name is Mrs. Miller-easy to remember-and she is very sweet. He likes her a lot. What a big guy we have. I cannot believe that he is old enough to be in school. Time flies!
Ahhhhh, now I can take a deep breath and try to enjoy it! Oh wait....Cooper starts preschool tomorrow!
Anyway, check out this handsome kindergartner!
