For years, probably since Noah could articulate a sentence, he has impatiently asked, "When am I old enough to go to that school?!" That day has seemed far off for so long that it's hard to believe that day was TODAY.
But here we are, on the first day of kindergarten for our big boy. The day started off with Noah's breakfast request: poached eggs, toast and strawberries. He excitedly declared, "It's a beautiful day to start kindergarten!"
I think the best part before leaving for Noah was finally getting to wear his first pair of Nikes. He's sure those new shoes are going to make him extra fast on the playground.
We snapped the traditional before school picture.
We noticed that our sweet neighbor Tia was doing the same thing so she came over and joined Noah.
So tiny, but I love it, even if it is like that for only a few days. And thankfully that other boy is Bentley, a sweet boy in our ward who was also Noah's t-ball buddy last spring. I have a feeling that things will change, but hurray for a smallish class size!
Finally 12:06 rolled around and it was time to pick up our big boy. He was all smiles and is ready to go back tomorrow.
