Tanner started Kindergarten Wednesday, September 1st! I still can't believe he's old enough to be in Kindergarten! When did he get so big and how did it happen so quickly?
I started a tradition when Tanner went off to Mother's Day Out for the first time... I decorated the kitchen with party supplies and baked chocolate chip scones for him. Since then, every time he starts up at a new school or begins a new school year I do the same thing! This year he ate his scones on the beautiful red "Today you are special" plate Tobey gave me as a gift. Each time the plate is used by the "special someone" the date and occasion is permanently written on the back of the plate. Today was Tanner's day!
I drove Tanner to school on his first day but he rode the bus home all by himself. His school day is from 8:00AM-2:30PM.
The bus picks him up in front of our villa at 6:45AM (yes, that's not a typo, 6:45AM!) and drops him off in the same place at 3:30PM. Is it just me or is that not an incredibly long day for a 5 year old?
Tanner was instructed to wear a red shirt for his first day. He chose to wear his Bahrain Rugby Team jersey, if you ask me (and I know you did) he looked adorable! ;)
Tanner was very excited to see his classroom and find his name on the bulletin board outside the door. He said " Mommy LOOK! It's MY name!!!"
Tanner is in Ms. Minehan and Ms. Crosby's class and had a WONDERFUL first day!
