Well we did it! We made it through the first day of kindergarten!!!! It was hard, and I even got to hang out the whole day! Darn you first day of kindergarten you sure pull on a mama's heartstrings. 

Getting ready to head out. My camera is busted so all these pictures are from my phone, sorry. :(

Kota Bear was not ready for Mr.Hunter to leave, and needed a "pack pack' just like him. 

They are just to adorable! 

One last quick picture with mama at nana's house before we left. 

At Mr. Hunter's school the first 3 days of kindergarten the 2 classes of students and switch back and forth between the teachers that way they can see who fits better in which class. They spent the day doing different activities at different centers a guess what, this mama got to work a center! Oh yes folks, in true helicopter mom fashion I not only got to stay the first day of kindergarten but i get to stay and help the next two days also. For the record i was asked to help. I didn't beg them to let me help, or bribe them, nor did I beat someone up and steal their name tag just so i could stay....although that last one did cross my mind.
Helicopter mom's unite! :)
The official drop off wasn't horrible. I could not however speak to my friend, who's little boy is in Mr.Hunters class, for fear of having a complete meltdown. Mr. Hunter only had one little teary part but he was very quick to turn it around and have fun with his friends. 

Mr.Hunter's favorite part of the day was lunch, which was also what he was most nervous about. They all looked so cute hauling their trays to the table, half of them couldn't even see over the lunch counter. Completely adorable. 

Mr. Hunter was also pumped he got to have 3 recesses, PE, music class, and a snack and he gets that every day. It was a very LONG day but it was a good one. I still can't believe that he is old enough for this but i am so proud that he is handling it so much better than his mama! 

Now next week Junebug goes to preschool, i will have 2 kids in school! I really want to puke now. So be prepared for another weepy post about this mama not being ready to let her kids grow up!! :)

i'm back!!

Sorry for the blogging break. It has been a crazy summer, packing to move to our new house :), swimming lessons, fishing, and even a trip to the er, but more on all that later. Right now I need to talk about the fact that this sweet faced first born child of mine goes to kindergarten tomorrow. Kindergarten. All day, with out a nap, 8:05am until 3:45pm, ALL DAY.  I kinda want to puke. I know he will be in amazing hands and i even get
 to volunteer in his class a couple days a week so it won't be to horrible. However he is still going to kindergarten. How in the world did that happen? 

This evening we had our first ever "night before school starts party" (thanks amanda for the idea!! :)). So Mr. Hunter picked the menu: pigs in a blanket, mac-n-cheese, and peas. Is that not the most 5 year old boy meal that you have ever heard! We even had a special cake that said " Colton is a T-Bird!". He is very excited to be a thunderbird just like this daddy and uncles were. At supper he told me he would go to kindergarten for 5 days, and then he would go to high school and play football......ummmm no little 

So before bed tonight I snapped a couple of pictures of my 5 year old kindergarten boy. 

Opening up his back to school surprise. 

He got special magic confetti to help him sleep and a new lovie.

His clothes are all laid out, and back pack is ready, so I guess we are really doing this.....I guess...because it would be kidnapping if I just kept driving and didn't drop him off......or is it still kidnapping if it's your own child....
Tomorrow I guess I will either blog about kindergarten or.... if it actually is kidnapping. :)
Please say a little prayer for us, it is going to be an emotional day!!!
