Here is my excited little Kindergartener, Piper, on her very first day of Kindergarten! She was so proud of her new Disney Princess lunchbox. I had forgotten to ask Mrs. Clonch about lunches when we had the "meet the teacher", so Piper got to pick out a lunchbox and take her lunch to school. I did not want to send her to school not knowing about lunch. I am sure the school would have fed her lunch, but I wanted to be sure my little big girl would get lunch.Piper did not want me to take her picture at school. So here she is "posing" for the picture that I took against her will. All the students had a picture of Clifford, the Big Red Dog, to color. At the bottom of the paper it said, My First Day of School. When Piper brought it home at the end of the day, she said they had read the story of Clifford and his first day of school.
This picture was on the outside of Piper's classroom. When I left her that morning, I saw another mom taking her child's picture by it. I wished I would have thought to take Piper's picture with it before I left her, but I got a picture of it without her instead. It has her teacher's name and classroom number on it. As I was putting it on my blog, I noticed the star beside the guy's shoulder has Piper's name on it. I thought that was pretty neat that I captured that in the picture unbeknownst to me!
Finn, Finn, Finn...why does he have to be so difficult sometimes? Another picture with one of his "great"expressions. He was sitting in his chair to color.
Mrs. Findley is finding out what a sweet little boy Finn is. When Jeremy went to pick him up after school the first day, Mrs. Findley told Jeremy that another student, named Kate, was picked up before Finn. Finn said so matter of fact, "I love her." Mrs. Findley said, "I really like her too, Finn." Finn said, "She's pretty. I love her." I just laughed when Jeremy told me. I could hear Finn saying it so matter of fact. Jeremy shared this story with some friends of ours, Arthur and Holly Brant. Their little boy is in Finn's class. They said their son, also said Kate is pretty. I took Finn to school today. I saw Kate. She IS pretty. Finn knows how to pick them!
For dinner, on Finn's first day of school, we ate at Chick-Fil-A. Mrs. Findley and her family just happened to be eating there for dinner too. Mrs. Findley shared another sweet story about Finn with us. She said at recess she has a bottle of water to squirt in the student's mouths when they get thirsty. She said Finn came to her for a drink of water. He got a drink and then told her "If you were in pre-k and I was your teacher, I would squirt the water in your mouth for you." Mrs. Findley thought that was so sweet. I would have to agree!
