In the car on the way I asked him "Are you nervous buddy? Or just excited?"
His answer: "I don't know what nervous means, but I am really excited!"
Me: "Nervous is when you feel a little scared, because you don't know exactly what something will be like."
Him: "Ya, I don't feel that at all. Just excited!"
His cute teacher is Miss Riggs
At meet the teacher he filled out this darling All About Me paper
Luckily, he had recovered from his on-the-way-to-meet-the-teacher injury a few days before:
And a story from two weeks into the school year:
We were all talking at the dinner table when Eli announced "I need to share a word with all of you." That got everyone's attention. "Today at school on the playground I saw something like a really rough crowd. I looked in the middle of everyone, and somebody pushed a girl on the ground. So I went and helped her up." He was feeling pretty confident that he was choosing the right. We were all very proud!
Eli is off to a great start in Kindergarten!
