So the first day of sending my oldest off to kindergarten turned out to be less traumatic than I thought. If you follow me on twitter or facebook, you already know I was the only Kindergarten momma not crying.
I kinda felt bad about that one.
I think it is because I knew he was SO ready to go combined with the fact we are doing 2 day private school and 3 days of homeschooling-- I knew I would be here with him all day today :)
Now if he had turned around with tears in his eyes as I was leaving THAT would have been a different story all together!
Yesterday, he woke up to the CHEESIEST set up--
HA hA hA ha ha! You would have thought I would have been more crafty! But no. I knew it was all kinds of crazy, but I also know in the universe that is kids, it would seem cool. So cool in fact he asked if I could just add the word "home" for today being the first day of homeschooling...it's still up ;) Someday SOON I hope to have a big chalkboard here, but for now it was cardstock and streamers. And one lonely balloon.
Sprinkle rimmed milk glasses were a HIT! Might have to do that weekly now
and off he went!
Brother had to get in on the action too :)
He also looks like his shorts are pulled up to his arm pits! Note to self--don't be THAT kid.
He marched right in and wheeled that Boba Fett backpack so proud! Little brother wanted to walk beside him the whole way
Today was our first day of homeschooling. Had to make a little math motivation
He LOVES math, but isn't used to 2 lessons a day. He agrees, the "smarty pants" help make math better :D Plus, you can use them to count and sort for the 3 year old! I just took an empty cocoa container (we have been saving ALL KINDS of empty bottles and boxes for crafts so it was nice to actually use one!) some Pebbles paper and October Afternoon stickers. Easy peasy. They thought it was genius--SO EASY to please a 5 and 3 year old :)
And to top off our day--happy May Arts mail, including these lovelies...
Why am I already thinking of Christmas?! But seriously, how pretty do those look with Crate Paper's Peppermint line in the back? I am loving the snowy pom pom looking one. Makes me want to start on a December Daily right now! A little early though, yes?
Happy Tuesday to you!
