First Day

I still can't quite believe he is old enough, but today was Zack's first day of kindergarten. He got right on the bus this morning and never looked back. I couldn't wait for the work day to end so I could see how the first day went. He is in after school care at the school and I found him on the playground. He didn't want to leave and he introduced me to his new best friend, Jack. Jack was on the bus with him in the morning and they sat in the same seat. They are also in the same classroom and in after school care together. Zack told me he loves his new best friend, Jack.

He was also excited about rest time. He was forced to take a two hour nap at his preschool and there is only a half hour rest time at kindergarten. He said, Mrs. D walked by me during rest time and saw my eyes were open and she didn't even care! He couldn't believe that he didn't have to keep his eyes closed for two hours and try to sleep.

He is wearing a yellow tag with his name, teacher's name, and bus parking spot. He claims he doesn't need to wear it tomorrow because Jack will help him get to class. Jack is also in kindergarten, so I'm not too sure about his abilities. Hopefully I can at least talk him into sticking it on his backpack.

So, the first day was a complete success. I hope he continues to make friends and love school. I'm so proud of you Zackers!!
