First Day of Kindergarten

 Well, the day we knew was coming came.  Snug started kindergarten.  Hard to believe.
 He was very excited to go, and it was hard to stand still and get pictures.  He just wanted to BE there.
 I printed this "First Day of Kindergarten" paper from a post I saw here.  I actually was routed from that post to "How Does She?" and then got the free printable.  I can print one for each grade, each year.  I thought it was a nice way to keep track of exactly which first day of school was pictured.
He did NOT want to wear the new outfit that I had picked out for him.  He said it looked like he was going to church and he was going to kindergarten.  Ok then.  He chose an ensemble of hand-me-downs that I approved and he was ready to go.  I was pretty teary, but walked behind a very confident him so he didn't even realize.

His favorite part of the day?  Recess.  Followed closely by lunch.  He got his new lunchbox from a good friend for his birthday.  He loves it.
