First Day of Kindergarten


Today was Jaxson's first day of kindergarten. He said that he was not excited to go, but I think that he secretly was and didn't want to let on. I could see him smiling to himself as we pulled in to the school parking lot in the rear view mirror. All went well till the bus ride home. You see, I wasn't planning on him riding the bus until next week. When I dropped him at school they told me that he could ride the bus home today. So my very nice neighbor wrote his bus number on his hand and tried to explain to him where to get off. I saw the bus drive down the street. I waited a few minutes. I saw neighbor kids come home. I waited a few more minutes. Jaxson has a slow streak in him and so I waited a few more minutes. Then I saw my neighbor round the corner. She had come to ask me if Jaxson had made it home. Then I started feeling a little panicky. A mini search party was launched. Two very sweet neighbors jumped in their cars to chase after the bus. Luckily, Jaxson was still on the bus. The bus driver had tried to ask Jaxson where he lived. Apparently, when under pressure, he can't remember his address. On a normal day he can. Anyway, the kindly bus driver drove him back by his bus stop so that tomorrow he would know where to get off. And then dear, sweet Randi (the helpful neighbor) brought him home in her van. Anywho, I thought Jaxson looked all grown up and very handsome in this picture taken in front of the school.

I can't believe Jaxson is in kindergarten. They grow up way too fast!
