Another Example of Time Going Fast

When I started this blog way back in 2006 my first real post was all about Dylan starting Kindergarten. This year he is in 4th grade. How did that happen?

And now it is Zoe's turn to start Kindergarten.
Today is the kids first day back to school.
This morning we all put on our new back-to-school outfits, the kiddos strapped on the new backpacks, Zoe and I grabbed our lunches {Dyl prefers the cafeteria}, and we are off for the first day of the 2010-2011 school year.

Dave is doing his daddy duty of going to daycare with Zoe to watch her get on the bus and then following it to school so he can escort her to class and snap pictures for me.  {That's the downfall of being a teacher, you always miss those school events as you are busy making them happen for your students!} 

Out of the three of us, Zoe is most definitely the most excited.  According to her, she has been waiting years to go to school and can't believe she can finally go.  She is most definitely ready for Kindergarten and will give the teacher a run for her money I'm sure.  She is eager to learn and I have no doubt within the first month will be reading on her own as she is sooo close after begging me to help her read all summer.

Dylan is not quite as enthusiastic as his little sister, but he is looking forward to being with his friends again. I can't believe he is at that stage already! He's most definitely not happy about getting up in the morning and getting dressed though since according to him he is more of a pj guy and spent many days in them this summer.  I think he just may be a little more excited than he is letting on though as he was up bright and early ready to get headed to school.

Me?  I'm as ready as I'm going to be I suppose. I think every teacher wishes they had a little more time at the beginning of the year to do this or that or maybe it is just me and my OCD.  But I'm pretty ready.  I'm definitely looking forward to starting a new year which I'm sure will be full of surprises.  I can't wait to meet my new students who I will share the year with and watch them grow to become middle school students.  Of course, starting the school year also means you are one day closer to summer vacation too, right???

So off to school we go.
It's going to be a good year.
I can feel it!!
