1st day of kindergarten

Walker had his 1st day of kindergarten on Monday! he was so excited, he got up dressed himself, brushed his hair, brushed his teeth, and got his back pack all ready! He had all this done before 7:00(school starts at 8:45.) So he had a while to just hang out and wait! He was extremely excited. He went to is class just great, and played on the playground. I just kind of stood their and watched him for a minute, and then realized he didn't need me. How sad is that? But I was glad he did so well. However, when I picked him up, and asked about his day he said, "it was stupid, and boring."And that he didn't want to go back. 

 DAY 2- When Walker said he didn't want to go back to school, he meant every word. He got up this morning and informed he was done w/ that stupid school.(those are his words) He threw the BIGGEST fit this morning as we were getting ready.I had to physically get him dressed, comb his hair, brush his teeth, and put him in the car. It took every ounce of Patience in my body to not want to beat him!  What happened to my big boy? We said prayers and  I asked Heavenly father to help Walker have a good day, and to help him be happy.Fortunately, he came home and said school was better today. THANK GOODNESS ! Bring on day 3!

Don't you worry Kim, they all go through that at some point. Coby was a little less happy when he came home today so I'm sure tomorrow he will give me a bit of trouble. Hang in there. I think he is just trying to make you thankful he is gone for those hours in the day.

First day of Kindergartens are the worst for the parents. The kids are excited, ready to go and we come home a blubbering mess. I'm sure Walker will start loving it.

ha ha ha ! that is funny. But that sucks too, there is nothing worse (ok there is) than your kids NOT wanting to go to school. It makes a hard week.
I hope day 3 and on go well!

That is so sad and cute all at the same time. He sure looks like a little stud in his picture!
