Left Home a Boy, Came Home a Little Man

Today was Carter's 1st day of Kindergarten at Waterford Elementary School. He was excited but treated the whole thing like it was no big deal. He was ready for kindergarten as if he had been doing it for some time. Carter is in the afternoon class 11:30-2:30 and knows several children. The kindergarten theme is animals. Could Carter ask for more? I do not think the teacher knows what she is in for when it comes to Carter's animal knowledge. Let's just say his fun reading is an animal encyclopedia. The classroom tables are named for animals, his table is the giraffes. According to Carter it was fun and he is ready to go back. The biggest deal of the day was that he could have chocolate milk at snack (something mom does not do at home).

Carter left home this morning my little boy and then came home today a little man (no hugs at the bus stop, only when we get home is what I was told).

How did Luke handle it? Just look at the picture...Not so well. When the bus came, Luke walked onto the bus with all the children. I had to hop on the bus and gently persuade him to join me and say goodbye to Carter. Okay, I really bribed Luke with snacks and a movie. He begrudgingly came with me.
