Bradley's 1st Day of Kindergarten

You knew it was bound to happen sooner or later. And after a severe scolding from Elizabeth (ya right, she doesn't know how to scold), here is the first of two 'first day of school' entries - Emmy's is coming up tomorrow. Stay tuned.

Bradley was supposed to bring a towel to lay on for "quiet time". Right. Who do they think they are? Quiet time? As in, lay down for 15 minutes or so and rest?

Anyway, they were so specific with the other things he had to buy (green folders, black composition book, Crayola products, Elmer's glue, etc.), I decided to go all out for his towel and surprised him the night before. He was ecstatic. I'm sure you can't tell from the look on his face.

We bought if from a lady in Great Britain. It makes it feel authentic.

They all began kindergarten this year. Three of the six houses have kindergartners in them! They look like they could be siblings: all that blond hair.

Goodbye, my baby.
I'll miss you.

Just not enough to homeschool you. :)

Love the pic of the bus and Bradley waving! I would have sent David on the bus if it didn't take 55 minutes!!! I can get him there in less than 10!

I can't believe he is in Kindergarten. They grow up too fast.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. Now, a favor. Please send those same pictures to me via email so I can save them and put them on our computers to see his smiling face over and over again.. lv

I forgot to say how very clever you were with your Harry Potter surprise. However, bet you took a little nap on it first :>)

Looks like he is ready to go! I can't believe all the kids are in kindergarten that we had in Joy School. They grew up so fast! Way to go Bradley looking good!

I wish I was a cool mom like you. I just don't think of these things (awesome towel!).

I Want to Hear From You!
