Keller is officially a kindergartner! We got up early and had a special breakfast of french toast...although the kids were pretty tired. I'm sure tomorrow will be even worse. We got all of our Back to School pictures (OK, really this was just for mom) taken and headed off to school on time. We dropped Harper off in her new classroom with Ms. Esther. She is very excited to have her own lunch box to carry. And then, we headed off to kindergarten. I was in tears last night as I put Keller to bed so I already told him I would be crying happy tears. However, I made it out the room before I started crying. Meanwhile, Keller went in, found his spot, asked if we were done with pictures and started coloring. The kid did awesome! I only stalked him once, and peeked in on his music class. One of my teacher friends also stalked him and gave him a wave (no, I did not put her up to this!).  At the end of the day, we celebrated the first day with ice cream at Austin Scoops.

Meet the Teacher

On Friday, we went to Meet the Teacher for Keller. He ended up with no CDC friends in class so we're starting off fresh...which is a little nerve racking. There is one little girl that was part-time at the CDC that he knows, and another little boy that is a friend of one of his friends. We went and he put away all of his supplies and explored his classroom. He met his teacher, Mrs. McKaskle. He was nervous and very shy. On the way home, I asked him what he thought, and he said it was bigger than he thought.

I know he'll be fine, but this momma is nervous!

Drawing Pictures

Keller was busy drawing pictures this morning for his friends.
