Statements by Keller: Kindergarten Edition
This week has been a busy week in the Gage house. Our son, Keller started Kindergarten! I must confess that it is really hard to process the fact that we have a kindergartner in our house. Of course he has been ready to go since May! In fact, there were times that he wanted to skip the summer altogether, so that he could start school.
So of course, I had to post a blog about his first statement in the classroom. He was really excited about meeting his teacher and new friends. My wife and I, along with all the other parents were helping getting the kids settled into their seats. The final bell started ringing...and before the teacher could say anything to the parents, this little voice chimes and says:
"Okay Moms and Dads! That was the bell to start school, and now it's time to say good bye to your little ones."
He then began to way good bye to us and all the other parents in the class room.
So clearly, our child has made his mark on Garden Elementary. The rest of the week consisted of our child being reminded that he was indeed the student and not the teacher, and that he needed to as he would say, "worry about Keller and let them worry about themselves."
Week 1 down...how many more to go?
