To be honest -- Keller was VERY nervous about starting kindergarten. We've been prepping for about 3 months -- Talking about making new friends. Recess. A cool teacher. Well -- I kept him as busy as possible the day before school started to get his mind off it. Day of morning he was chit-chatty -- a sign he genuinely was excited. Chad & I drove him to school, walked in, dropped off his stuff, played on the playground & took him into his class. One by one the teacher called the kids to the rug & off the parents went. Keller was a trooper. When we picked him up he said school was great & he was excited to go back for Day 2.

The question I keep getting: Did I cry? Not day off. It's been on my mind A LOT. I will miss eating lunch with the little dude. I'll miss him running errands with me. But -- I am genuinely excited for him to begin this cool journey. Go Mr. Kindergartener!

Keller is so grown up! It's crazy how fast it goes and there is just no slowing down that train!
Glad that day #1 went well.
