Garrets first day

so garrets first day went really well, i think :) he is a funny guy. it was hard getting him to talk about it. i think he needed to process it b/c as the day went on and all day today he has been bringing up other things about his first day. i think he really likes his teacher Mrs. Ayers. She seems like a great teacher the little bit that i have gotten to talk to her. Garret goes back on Thursday and then his 5th birthday is on friday so he is going to have a busy week. we are really proud of him. i think school is going to be great for him. he wasnt sad at all to stay. i think he was a little shy but excited. so here are some pictures of him seeing what the backpack fairy brought and of him all dressed up for his first day.

Wow! What a big boy! I loved the filled backpack...what goodies! And I'm so glad that he enjoyed his first day!

One fun game that you could play with him to try to get him to share about his day is the Hi/Low game. He shares one high point from his day, and one low point from his day...It gets the conversation started! And the kids seem to love it and look forward to it every night at dinner, or so I'm told:)

You are a great Mommy- And you did a good job preparing him for Kindergarten! Can you believe that he will be 5 on Friday?!? Whoa- Time flies!

Love ya!
