Benjamin's 1st Day of School!

Benjamin started Kindergarten this year! The way Greenville has the Kindergartners start, to ease them into the idea of a classroom setting, is to have half the students go to school on Tuesday and the other half go on Wednesday. Then, Thursday (and from there on), the whole class goes together. Benjamin was part of the group that started today, Wednesday.

He seemed a bit nervous about the whole idea, but we reassured him that he would have fun. I was feeling a bit guilty, like I was abandoning him. But, the end of the day made me feel better to find out how much fun he had! It certainly is something to get used to, since school schedules are something we haven't had to deal with since Daddy & Mommy were in college (we won't mention how long ago that was!!).

Finishing up breakfast before heading to school:

At his locker, with Daddy:

At his table, in his chair:

It was kind of funny, we had to dodge around another parent who was taking pictures of her daughter's first day of school. She apologized once, as we stood waiting for our turn at the lockers, but I told her I completely understood!

Wow, look at him standing there in front of his school! He looks so grown up! :)

Lockers in kindergarten... I remember being so amazed to have a locker when I started sixth grade! :)

I was hoping you'd post photos from his first day of school. They were fun to see! :)

You know, I got so wrapped up in Benjamin's first day of school, I completely forgot I wanted to post something in my "Grove" blog about us living here for a full year already!
