David's 1st Day of School

Today was David's first day of kindergarten! I can't believe my big boy is in school. He was so excited and could hardly wait. I can't wait to hear all about his day!

We met his teachers last week and loved them. We loved his schedule and think that he's going to absolutely love every minute! We will miss him soooo much. We did all sorts of special things last week for "David's Week of Fun" before he officially became a student. We went to the DE Natural History Museum, we went to Longwood Gardens with our Mimi, we went to Chick-Fil-A, we met our friends the Jacksons for one final trip to the pool, we had a sleepover, we went to Friendly's for breakfast, and we played lots of David's favorite games and made special treats. It was a special week that we will always remember.

Dave stayed home today to see him off and we got to walk down to our bus stop together. The bus is great because it's only kindergarteners and goes right to his school. He was so cute getting on the bus. I of course, started crying at that point and have been crying off and on all day. We went to the park and the museum so that we would'nt be so sad today. :) Owen is going to be so lonely...he said to me when we got back to the house, "I miss David at school." David is truly his best buddy.

I pray that David learns and continues his love for learning and makes lots of new friends and is a diligent student all of his school years. It seems like just yesterday he was my happy baby boy and now he is growing up right before our eyes. He brings so much joy and sunshine and laughter and fun to our family and he is always full of encouragement to everyone around him. We love him so much and could not imagine our life without him. Happy first day of school our Davey!!! We love you!
