First Day of Kindergarten!

Benjamin missed yesterday because of the eclipse, so he started kindergarten today. He and Dave made his lunch last night, and he and I walked to school while Dave dropped Phoebe off and met us at Sanchez. Benjamin was both excited and nervous on the playground, but he lined up and made it into his classroom to put his lunch in the laundry basket marked “Mrs. Rothman” and adorned with a picture of a ladybug. He hung his backpack on his hook and disappeared from our view.

Just before leaving our house to walk to Alicia Sanchez International Elementary School.
Here he is on the playground getting ready for his first day of kindergarten.
He’s hidden by his friend Alejandro (with the red backpack; they were in preschool together), but he’s headed into the classroom with the other new kindergartners!

After school we learned that he’d had a good day. Congratulations, little boy! You’re truly getting big.
