Back to School Time

Oh, where does the time go?

A week from today, my twins will start Kindergarten. (Sniff, sniff.)

Okay, tearful moment over.

This is very exciting, for the boys and for me. They will be in separate classes for the first time, and I am interested to see how they do apart. When my husband first told them they would be in different classrooms, they objected, but quickly let the issue go. I guess they are like their daddy in that way; if it hasn't happened yet, don't worry about it.

But I know they've been thinking about it because Twin B sat down on my lap yesterday and started asking me lots of questions about where would he be, where would Twin A be, would they be in the same building, would they see each other, etc. I explained they would be in different rooms with different teachers, but would still see each other during recess, at lunch, and at home every day. This seemed to satisfy him and he let it go. Then we started practicing tying our shoe laces.

They will meet their teacher on Monday, and we'll find out how the whole Kindergarten processes work; drop-off, pick-up, lunches, buses, school activities, etc.

It's a big step for the little guys, and I'm very excited. We have school supplies, school clothes, and we're ready to go.

I'll keep you posted on how Meet the Teacher goes.

UNBELIEVABLE that the boys are five years old and going to kindergarten. I'm sniffing more than you! I know they will have a wonderful year. Hugs and kisses.
