09/09/09...

In our house, it will forever be known as Donovan's first day of Kindergarten! I wish I could say that the day went along smoothly, but I'd be telling a big lie! Things happened but in the end, it all worked out.

Mr. D started the day off with mommy's french toast and watermelon slices...yummy!

He took a healthy lunch of peanut butter on wheat (he doesn't like jelly), grapes, a granola bar, and a capri sun...all of his favorites.

I underestimated the amount of time it would take to get myself and 2 kids out of the house and we ended up rushing like mad dogs to get him to school on time, but we made it. Tomorrow, I'll be certain to get up earlier!
The camera was at the ready though....had to get some shots no matter how little time we had! LOL!

He's such a cool little dude. He suddenly decided not to carry his book bag with one strap on each shoulder, but with both straps on one shoulder...too cute!
His grandmom picked out the outfit...love it!

I can always tell when he's feeling "nervous and a little shy" because he puts on this face...

Our other "hiccup" for the day...the school did not make me aware that school uniforms were the standard attire! Donovan was the ONLY kid in his class without a uniform! Talk about someone being pissed! Yeah, that was me! My mother in law and I spent a lot of money on school clothes only to find out that we didn't have to. Not very happy about the lack of communication and I certainly hope that this doesn't set the tone for how things are going to go during his time at this school!
I swear Donovan's height never ceases to amaze me! I look at him as my baby, uhh I mean my big boy, but when I see him next to kids his age, he looks ginormous! (I blurred the eyes of the 2 kids closest to the camera)

Despite the nervousness, Mr. D had a great day and is looking forward to returning to Mrs. N's class tomorrow!
Just check out the after school smile...


When I asked him about his day he said he colored, played, went to the computer lab, at lunch in a place that had 2 basketball courts (aka the gym), and the teacher read 2 stories to the class.

He even felt up to striking a few poses for me...

So, all in all it was a good day, my baby is happy, so I'm happy. After school we went to Dairy Queen for ice cream since he was such a good boy in school. I ran to the mall and picked up a few uniforms so we're already for tomorrow.

What a cutie-pie!! And I can relate . . . my daughter's first day of kindergarten a couple days ago didn't go so smoothly either (but all was well by the second day).
