The One with the First Days of School

Talan started kindergarten last week in Mrs. Gilliam's class. He was so excited to go the first day and hasn't looked back since.  As Steve was about to take him that first morning, he started to get in the truck, but then ran back and gave Tatum a huge hug.  He said, "I"m gonna miss you today, Tatum!"  That's when I got a little teary-eyed.

I usually drive him to school in the morning, but he did ask to go on the bus one day.  He really liked it, but he hasn't gone on it again.  We strategically plan it so he gets to school at the same time as Lana so they can walk in together.  He also eats at the cafeteria on most days, but sometimes I will pack him a special lunch. 

I have to say I really like having a kid in school.  It's exciting to see the work he brings home and to hear about his day.  And, he goes to bed sooooo easy now cause he is exhausted.

Tatum also had her first day of preschool at Busy Bees.  Her teachers are Lani and Natalie and she goes twice a week for two hours.  This was a long time coming...she has been wanting to go to preschool for the past two years, ever since Talan has been going.  She was so happy to go and didn't look back either!
