First Day of Kindergarten!

Yesterday was the big day! Ken is officially in Kindergarten!
I wanted to get this post up yesterday but was emotionally and physically drained.
Needless to say, it was just a really long day! lol!

I have a bookmark and a flap card to share, but before I post those later tonight, I wanted to get these photos up from the first day of Kindergarten.

You will see that his best bud, Spud, has decided to keep him company on this very special day.

Ken and his dear friend just found out they are going to be in the same Kindergarten class!

New backpack and outfit from Obaachan and Ojiichan!

Walking together with our neighbors to school!

Meeting Mrs. M. for the very first time!

The proud parents!

Hope everyone had a terrific summer and a wonderful first day back to school!

How exciting that Ken gets to go to school with a friend. He looks so happy, I'm sure it was an emotional day though. See you soon.
