First Day of Kindergarten

And so the story left untold, is the not greatest story of all. Welcome to the Savannah Lakes Elementary School. Jacob is five and a half years old and head and shoulders taller than any Kindergartener I know. It's plain to see that Jacob took to his first day with ease and delight. It's hard not to love a school with an open-air library filled with interactive tools, stuffed African animals and positive banners and flags waving you on! We walked steadily towards the "Aquatics" wing of the school. Quite fitting, I must say, being that he is a little Aquarian! Our water baby walks the halls with great white sharks and sea turtles and swims up to room 502 where he was promptly welcomed into a new class. Seems like they had been waiting for him for years. It was a great feeling of calm coupled with fantastic feelings of security. This is where he is meant to be.... AND, no one made fun of his 'hobo-style' lunch bandana! They all thought it was really cool, in fact, that Jacob's lunch hankie had a neatly wrapped package that made a perfect red placemat. I'm sure they all were AMAZED at how simple and reusable this little invention is...whatever mom. I'm taking that one while I can get away with it.
