Today was our first “official” day of Kindergarten. Carson has been begging to start school since his birthday in May. We’ve been doing “school” for a while but I ordered some new fun stuff for Kindergarten and he’s really excited. I was going to wait until August but it’s been so hot lately we’ve stayed indoors more than usual. I figured starting a few weeks early wouldn’t be a big deal.
We went to Chick-fil-A for breakfast because that is what Carson wanted to do. We all went out to eat and spent some time together before Daddy flew to Baltimore for 2 days. We stayed and played for a while and then came home and I put Calen down for a nap.
I knew better than to pull everything out and try to do school in the morning. I thought I had enough things to keep Camron occupied but I was wrong. I quickly realized that school in the morning was not going to work 🙂 After a few meltdowns and a few talks we made it through our first day.
The rest of the week went really well. Carson really enjoys doing “school.” His favorite thing right now is math and bible time. He is doing really well with Handwriting and he loves to play phonics games. We really love to read but sometimes I put it off and then forget. We always read at bedtime but I want more reading throughout the day. We have made it a point every morning to set a timer for 20 minutes and go curl up in bed and read. I hope that he always loves to learn.
