What?? Kindergarten?? Seriously?? Yes, it's true. The Doodlebug has started Kindergarten. He loves his teacher, Mrs. Lopez. He's apparently very entertaining for any teacher he comes in contact with. He's making friends, eating his lunch (even bought his lunch one day), following the rules - he's doing great!!

They do a gingerbread unit to start off the year so he had a homework assignment before school ever started. As a family, we were supposed to decorate a gingerbread man. We had a bunch of popsicle sticks around the house because the Doodlebug had been creating things with them throughout the summer so we used those. He did the coloring and I did the gluing. Chad took care of everything about the neck.

Here he is before we left for school on his first day.

And here he is walking into his classroom.
Did I cry? You betcha!!! But then again, so did his father......

Summer Fun Days

The bugs went to Summer Fun Days at the school the Doodlebug has been going to since he was 18 months old. It was back in July (yes, I'm a little tardy) - 3 days a week for 2 weeks. It was a nice little mommy break. This was the first time the Ladybug had ever been in a school setting. Actually, it was the first time she had been away from any family. The first few days....well, she was not a fan. But the second week she had fun!! She would go to her teacher without any tears. She played all day and even laid down for her nap without any tears. She will be attending this school starting in the fall so this was a good rehearsal...she'll be fine. Here are a few pictures (the second one cracks me up). Check out the Ladybug with her backpack and lunch kit.

The Doodlebug has only a few more days left before he is officially a kindergartner. Lord help me......
