first day at school

Today is my boy’s first day at school. He has been so excited about starting school for so long there were times when I thought the day would never come. It has. This year he has two days a week in the kinder class at the local primary school.

Yesterday I finished making him some grey school shorts and last night I stayed up into the wee hours sewing a dinosaur backpack for this special day.

Despite being excited there were shy and nervous moments too.1. a little shy

But mostly excitement...2. excited too

…so much so that he was dancing for joy.3. dancing for joy

He is going to kick butt at school (not literally!)4. gunna kick butt

Off he goes on his way…5. on my way

…maybe not. All that excitement can make you feel exhausted you know?6. maybe not ... exhausted already
