Kindergarten Life

We're already 3 months into the school year and Ethan is truly loving Kindergarten!  His teacher, Mrs. Barnett, is wonderful as well.  He's learning to read already and can spell many words.  According to Mrs. Barnett, he excels at math (got that from Nick!) and is a natural leader.  He goes to school every afternoon from 12:30-3:40 and never fails to bring home a 5 inch piles of papers to show what they've been working on.  He earns "paws" for good behavior during the day and then can cash those paws in for rewards such as getting to sit in the teacher's chair for the day or taking his shoes off all does the trick!  He's already cashed in about 20!

Excited for his first day!

Nick and I got to spend the first few minutes in his classroom on his first day.  We learned where he'd be sitting, where to hang his backpack and met some of his new friends.  My heart swelled up as we left but I know he's more than ready to start school, so it wasn't terribly sad, just bittersweet.

  1. Thanks for posting all the great pictures. The one of Alec shows him really changing, first day of school. Ethan is such a little man, so handsome.
