He was all jazzed and ready to go and I think he enjoyed his first day. He's actually a repeat kindergartner and I think the only glitch in the day was when he wondered why his best friend from last year is in the first grade now and he's not. He was assured that he can play with Mario at recess and we're keeping it positive and focusing more on things like him being a leader in the class and already knowing some of the stuff they'll learn rather than telling him he's repeating a grade. I think it's going to really help him to be ahead when he does start first grade, rather than struggle through several grades and always being just a little behind his classmates. Our big focus this year is reading. Every night before bed and during the day, too!
I have a job interview tomorrow so think happy thoughts for me!
