First Day of Kindergarten

Mitchell and Chris and I went to the first day of Kindergarten, today. The parents were invited to the "orientation session." The teacher gave a an overview for the parents, going over procedures, and then read a story to the kids, "The Kissing Hand," about a baby racoon's separation anxiety before his first day of school. Then, the kids did a small project, drawing a picture of someone they love, and tracing a picture of their hands and putting on a heart sticker.

All done, Mitchell wanted to do "recess," but we said he would have to wait until tomorrow.

Happy Knitting,

Ben goes to his first day of kindergarten on Monday. I will admit that I am sad about it. I wish I could keep him little just a bit longer.
