Yesterday was the first day of school for both William and Kaela. William is going into the first grade and Kaela is going into Kindergarten! They will both be in school all day and are very excited. William was a little bummed that his two best friends aren't in his class this year, but was very positive about being able to see them on the playground. He also has (from what we have heard from many people) a wonderful teacher, Mrs. Gillow, so we are very excited to see how much he grows and learns this year.
Kaela is beyond excited about being in Kindergarten! She has the same teacher that William had last year, so she is familiar with her and is very happy to have Mrs. Shannon. We are excited to see all of the things Kaela learns this year and to meet all of the new friends she's going to make. The kids happen to be right across the hall from each other too, which makes it easy for drop off and they get a chance to see each other every once in awhile.
Our Elementary school and the staff have been amazing getting Kaela everything she needs to help make her independent and able to be comfortable. We are so happy to have such a great school, group of teachers and staff that care so much. It sounds like she's already made some friends and I'm sure will be making lots more as time goes on. We are really excited to watch them both grow this year, although Wesley is missing them a lot and wishing they were here to play with :)
Wesley and Mommy are trying to keep busy and enjoy some one on one time together. He's getting so big and is so much fun to be around.
Here are some pictures of the kids on the first day of school.
