I’m happy to report that Damien LOVES going to Kindergarten! He’s excited to get up in the morning and doesn’t want to leave when we pick him up. I asked this morning if he likes his teacher and he said she’s “great”! I know it’s only been three days, but it makes me so very happy. <3
And because she’s so darn cute, here’s a recent picture of Katrina!
On Thursday we went to the elementary school’s open house to meet Damien’s Kindergarten teacher and see his classroom. Since the school is located in Hampton, it already has a bad reputation, but I did feel comfortable with his teacher so I’m trying to be optimistic. After all the milestones we’ve been through, this one is the hardest for me. I know he’ll do well academically. He’s so bright and curious. It just feels like the first step towards growing up and I’m scared.
Thank you Rob and Robin for the backpack! And I also need to thank his Great Grandma Smith and Great Grammy Whitehill for the money they sent. We can’t think of anything he needs at the moment, but we’ll find something good to do with it.
In other news–Robbie, Naomi, and Sarah came over for dinner tonight. I think it’s been about 7 years since Scott and Robbie have seen each other so it was really awesome. Damien seems uncertain about Sarah, but they’re SO cute when they interact together.
