I'm in Kindergarten

Today was the day...Cameron is off at Kindergarten and I sit here trying to figure out what I want to do. Luckily, I don't go back to work to till the 10th so I have a lot of free time on my hands. Last night Cameron made his lunch and put it in his new Dark Knight lunch bag...1/2 peanut butter & jelly sandwich, 1 black apple (red delicious), 8 mini Oreos, 16 mini Pringles, chocolate milk and water ("mom, I need water just in case I get thirsty"). Then we laid his new Dark Knight backpack--do you see a theme--out along with his school uniform (at first I was not happy about this...but they sure all look cute dressed the same).

"Look Mom, I'm smart like you!"

This morning after Coco Puffs and a small argument about doing his hair we headed out to wait for the bus...and wait...and wait...and wait! Just a few kinks--school starts at 8:51 and the bus arrived at 8:50. My mom is glad I don't work this week so I can work out all the kinks for her.

A huge bus for 3 kids!!!!

Okay, yes I'm one of those geeky moms who followed her kid to school and then snapped a picture. We might have laws that say no texting while driving or you must use a hands free device but there are NO laws about picturing taking.
Cameron went right in hung up his backpack and found his seat.

Just before I left he asked me how long he had to be there...I told him 6 hours. He gave me that look like I was torturing him, "6 hours mom, that is too long!"

The best part of the day is I left without melting down!!!!!

I love it that you got on the bus to get a picture. I wish I would have done that when the boys were in kindergarten because now they would just die. How cute!!
