Ronan started Kindergarten yesterday! He was up bright and early to get ready and catch the school bus. I had told him all the exciting things that he would learn this year and he was so excited to start school!
All five of us walked down the long driveway to wait for the bus.
Ronan and Mommy
He told me after school that he specifically chose the seat by the blinking stop sign. Click on the picture to enlarge it to see his smiling face.
After school we went out to lunch, and Ronan got to pick the restaurant - he chose Applebee's. On the way to the restaurant he said, "I didn't learn how to read yet"; I told him that it would take more than one day at Kindergarten. We asked him about his first day and this is what I got from our conversation:
1) He followed all the children from the bus to the playground and played until the bell rang (he was supposed to meet his teacher in the cafeteria)
2) A mean girl pushed him down the slide
3) He forgot where he put down his backpack but a teacher helped him find it by the swings
4) Three or four adult interventions later, he finally found his teacher and his classroom
Despite getting lost and being pushed on the playground, he is excited to go back!
