No nap today!

The innocence of a fresh kindergartener:

"I can't believe it!!! I'm going to school!!" Sam burst out with this several times as the hours drew near for him to board the bus.

As we are waiting (all 5 of us) at the bus stop, Caleb says, "Oh yeah, I need to give you hugs and kisses before you leave!"
Sam responds with, "Not now. Wait till the bus gets here."

"Mama, you can just stay here. I can handle it." Sam said to me as we were eating breakfast and I was telling him how we'd walk with him to the bus stop.

"I don't need a treat after lunch. My snack at school will be my treat."

"Look, I drew a picture of my first day of Kindergarten at school. See, I'm holding an ice cube!"
"Oh!" I say. "What did you do with ice today?"

I was too excited for him to cry. His excitement was contagious. He had such a great time, and today he kept saying that he was so excited to go back.
