The excitement is building. McKade and I went school supply shopping while Mike and Rogan stayed home to install a water softener. (This may make our dishwasher more functional, so yeah…no more hand washing dishes!!)
Anyway, there we were at the store, list in hand, and I started experiencing more and more emotion. I felt excited, scared, worried, insecure, anxious…so many emotions. My first born baby is going to school…without me…for an entire day!! Full day kindergarten for McKade will be a great thing, I know it. There are no doubts about his ability to handle it. And I can too. It’s just that every time I picture him standing there at the bus stop and enjoying a short ride to school, I then picture him stepping off the bus with no familiar faces and starting a life so very independent from Mom and Dad.
We have an ice cream social to attend on Monday night, and I suspect this event will put my his mind at ease. It will be an opportunity to get a feel for the layout of the school, see his classroom, meet some friends, and meet his teacher. I am so excited about this!!
Meanwhile, we found some fun school supplies, and of course his notebooks are covered in Spiderman!! I can’t wait for my little boy to discover the joys of school. He will soon be reading and discovering other worlds within the pages of his books. I am eager to watch him grow and develop into an even more amazing young man. This is such a special time for him and I will do all I can to support and encourage his academic endeavors!!
