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?"
