Ready or Not, Kindergarten here comes Hudson!

The year is finally here...Hudson officially started school!  You would think that I would have been ready since he got to stay at home an extra year with an August birthday, but I still find it hard to believe.  It is amazing (and sad!) to me how fast time has gone by.  With two years of Pre-K under his belt at our church, he was ready, whether this mamma was ready or not!  Thursday, August 22nd we headed to our new neighborhood school to Meet the Teacher.  It was very strange being on the other side.  I have a lot of experience being the teacher, but not much being the mom!  Thankfully, his teacher, Mrs. Bray is everything we prayed for!!  She is absolutely wonderful and he loves her!  Here they are at Meet the Teacher.

 Monday, August 26th, we got up early for his first day of Kindergarten!  School starts at 7:30, so he has an early wake up time of 6:30 this year.  It has definitely been an adjustment and my little sleeper has been going to bed at 7:00 without batting an eye.  Bless his heart!  He let me torture him with a few pictures before heading out the door.  :)
 Here he is at his table before we said good-bye.  He didn't shed one tear.  (Wish I could say the same, but they started streaming when I walked out the door!)
I am writing this on Friday night, so he has been in school for one week!  He did GREAT all week!!  He loves his teacher, loves that a friend on his soccer team is also in Kindergarten and he sees him at recess, he loves art and music class, and loves that his teacher has rewarded him several times during the week for making good choices.  I couldn't be more proud of how well he did his first week!!!  I hope his love for school stays strong all through the year and through his life!  :)
