Kindergarten Snapshots

October 5, 2011

Because Scott’s kindergarten teacher is capital A to the Awesome… She texts or emails me a picture of him doing his classroom thing every week. I used to pretend that Scott is her favorite and that she only does this for me, but then I realized that on group pics I wasn’t the only email address in the “to” box. It’s cool though, I am sure he is in the top 16.

Week 1 ("Sooo, I guess kindergarten is ok....")

Week 2

Week 3

Week 4

Week 5 (first field trip!)

PS After about two weeks of school, Mrs. Mayfield called and said that Scott was having a hard time and getting teary eyed through out the day. Super mom and dad had NO IDEA. He only talked about how much he loved school. We started giving him a daily love note to put in his pocket and when he starts missing us or feeling sad, he can put his hand in his pocket and know we love him and we will see him soon. It has worked like a charm! All that to say, the pictures in which he has his hand in his pocket break my heart and make me proud at the same time. New experiences are hard…. He is brave and strong and got through it.

    I remember Scott’s mom doing the same thing! Broke my heart. Wish I would have thought of the love note. You’re a great Mom, Cori. I’m proud of you.
