So Kindergarten.
Don't worry, Kindergarten isn't full of belts, this is just the only picture I had on my phone from the last week... parenting photo fail...but it WAS taken while back to school shopping, so it counts.

Guys, he is doing AMAZING.  Like, using all capitol letters really doesn't fully express how A-M-A-Z-I-N-G it is going.  I want to knock on some wood (just did actually) because I know we are only three days in, but he is just absolutely dissolving every fear we had.  There have been NO TEARS.  As far as I can see, there has been no fear.  And while I know he must have been nervous, it never showed.  He was confident and brave and just marched right into each new thing like the big boy he is.

His teacher told me that on the first day when she said they were going to Music class and that they would stay with the music teacher that Henry said something along the lines of "Um, excuse me, but I am suppose to stay with you and I think I will just stick with that plan."  She told him that she knew he would love it and that he was going to do great.  When he came back to her room after music she said he looked at her and said "You know what Ms. Turner?? I CAN do this!"

God love his sweet heart, these things don't come easily for him, but I swear nobody would know it.  He is completely embracing this change and is doing so so great.

Well done, sweet boy, well done.



  1. Lucy had Mrs. Turner and we LOVE LOVED her! Glad the first few days have been so great! :)

  2. I'm so glad it's going smoothly for him. Hope the rest of the year continues on this path!
