First Day of Kindergarten

Oh, so Kaden has been in Kindergarten for 2 weeks now. Yes, they started SUPER early this year (Aug. 10th) in an effort to have a longer Christmas break (can I start counting the days already). The first days were rough. Very rough, on all of us (well, all but Marin who is thriving in her new found role of "only child at home"). Today many others started kindergarten, so I decided I was finally up for posting these pictures.

Perhaps part of the difficulty starting kindergarten was because we've had such a wonderful summer. We've gotten to do so many small, but fun things as evidenced by the 200+ photos I'm trying to squeeze into a Shutterfly album without much luck. We've soaked up this summer, and starting a new routine is hard.

Kaden is going to all day every day kindergarten. It was a choice. I'm still questioning it. He's gone from 8am-4:15pm every day. It's long and he's tired. He loves lunch and recess and I think he's growing to enjoy almost everything else about his daily routine too.

This is not possible. NOT POSSIBLE!

Hang in there, Allecia! Wendy told me about your rough start. I can't imagine how tough that would be - on you, worried about him, and all day I'm sure you're thinking of it. But it sounds like you are adjusting and I hope it gets better soon. Keep us posted.
