Well, the day has come and gone. My big boy now has three whole days of kindergarten under his belt and he loved every single second. He can't wait to go back tomorrow! I'm glad that he likes it so much, but secretly I wish he would say, "I really miss you mommy." I'm so glad he wasn't clinging to us or crying. That would have been awful. Nope, he was great. A little nervous - evident by the very very tight grip he had on my hand walking through the halls of Painted Stone on the first day. But he quickly found his spot, put his book bag away and sat down at his little table and started coloring his first ever school assignment. We gave him hugs and kisses and walked out of his classroom. Y'all, as soon as I turned my back, the waterworks started. Thankfully, Jacob didn't see me. His teacher did though, and she ran out in the hall and gave me a big ole hug. Sigh. I managed to go to work for a few hours that day, but I have to say, I've never watched the clock as much as I did that day. I was so ready to see 2:20 pm roll around. He was SO excited!!!! Daddy was with me, which is super cool that we got to experience this together. We met some of our friends at the Pie Kitchen and had a celebratory ice cream cone. Jacob was talking a mile a minute. It was one of those "let's freeze this moment in time" experiences. And, even though I'm sad, my heart is happy. Jacob was excited to go get his bubby and tell him all about his first day. We are blessed indeed.
