Cade's First Day of Kindergarten

Today was the day that Cade has been waiting three long years for. The day that he finally started school at YISS. His first day of Kindergarten!

Of course, he tends to be pretty casual about things. To talk to him, you would never know just how excited he was for today. In some moments, he even appeared a bit shy, but no one was fooled. It was clear by the big goofy grin on his face that he was excited!

His orientation was on Friday afternoon, so he got to visit his classroom, meet his teacher (again), and find his seat and school supplies.

He played it off like it wasn't a big deal to him, but he kept talking about sitting at the "orange" table all weekend. And he was certain that Saturday would be the day to go to school. And then Sunday would be the day to go to school.

Finally, Monday rolled around. And he slept in until almost 8:00! It was a good thing he didn't have to be at school until 8:30 for the Boo Hoo Breakfast.

One way that I could tell just how excited this boy was for school to start was his willingness to have these pictures taken. This kid is not a fan of being in front of the camera, but he was ready and willing when I asked them if we could take pictures on...ahem...Saturday.

(which means they're not actually walking to the school bus, though they could be!)

Cade is the only male staff kid in his grade level...still. There are four girls and Cade, so he happily sat with the girls to have his pancakes and bacon at breakfast.

And then we went down to the courtyard and took a few pictures before they were off to their first day of school!

It was a short one--a half day made shorter by the breakfast and prolonged parent drop off--but he still had plenty of stories to tell upon his return!

He was feeling a bit shy about getting any more pictures at school, so I let him get by with just this one outside his classroom. For now.

We didn't time things very well to get Kennedy's pictures in her classroom on the first day of school, so her teacher was at lunch when we went up. We'll have to try again tomorrow. (And I should really stop giving away my secrets!) But, I figured that Cade deserved a post of his own for his momentous occasion. So proud of this kid today!
