Benji has been enjoying kindergarten so much. He absolutely loves it and is excited to go every morning he gets to. He always comes home with a big smile on his face.
Yesterday he was especially excited because he got a “golden ticket” at school.
I DID give him a very big hug and he was so proud of himself. I’m so proud of him too.
I’ll admit though, I’m not super proud of the first art project he came home with.
Ben told me it’s “me in a bathing suit.” I’m not sure when Ben has ever worn a brown full-body bathing suit, but hey, good try. I’m just gonna call this a testament to how little I pull out the paints at home. (Truthfully I’m sure it’s been well over a year.)
Regardless of his lack of skill with a paintbrush, I’m happy he’s enjoying school so much. His favorite parts so far are riding the school bus and lunchtime, but I know he’s making friends and he always has lots of stories to share.
He also came home with his first school picture proofs, and I’m not gonna lie, I teared up. He looks so grown up and so much like a baby at the same time. I’m so happy that the crappy school photographers managed to capture the chubbiness of his cheeks.
