Our First Day of School

Today my two little guys went off to their first day of school. They were both so excited about it too, Monty moving up into a new classroom for Kindergarten and little E into a bit of pre-school. Elliot thought he was the coolest kid in town and couldn't wait to go to school. When I picked him up at the end of his day (he goes from 9-12, 3 days a week), he said, "We stand in straight lines!" Monty turned  5 in June but I think he's ready to start learning reading, writing and math at a Kindergarten level. The younger 2 attend a Montessori school and I felt that M would gain so much by studying these subjects now and having opportunity to develop leadership skills and have "big kid" responsibilities (as an example, last year he had a speaking part in the Christmas production which was awesome for his confidence). Anyway, my plan is to move him to Parker's school next year as a new 6 year old and have him take Kindergarten again there with a new group of kids. It's a classical school and quite a bit more difficult, so I think it will be an appropriate move for him at that age. So that's the plan with my little Ro.

I found this adorable printable and had each boy take a picture on their first day to remember this momentous occasion. Not sure if you can read it as well as I'd like but oh well, cute nonetheless.
