First day, big day
Oh, my! I cannot believe today was Kelwyn's first day of Kindergarten. He was so excited he woke up in the middle of the night (asked for a cup of milk and went back to sleep with his Grammy) and could hardly eat breakfast. Of course he picked out his favorite green corduroy overalls and big fur winter boots to wear. He bravely marched up to the classroom with his lunch box, and Slater and I trailing behind. He will only be going 2 mornings a week, but it is a big step for him, and us. This is the first year for Kelwyn's new school, Azalea Mountain, and a lot of love and work has been put in our local Waldorf community to prepare for it over the years. The classroom was beautiful, warm and inviting and full of wooden, simple toys. He took off his boots and found his cubby to place his things. Miss Kate, our teacher chose an owl for his picture after her visit to our home a few weeks ago. It was precious and I think he loved it too. (hard to see in phone camera picture, but it is really cute) I am looking forward to a wonderful year with lots of fun festivals, pot lucks and nature day/field trips. I also need to plan our activities and homeschooling for the rest of the week. I am a bit behind on this task due to several very busy and hectic weeks. I want to try and get outside as much as possible and enjoy the beautiful fall season ahead.
