My baby boy is all grown up! Ok, maybe that's a bit of an exaggeration. But, he is old enough for kindergarten! We've been anticipating starting at his school since we moved back to Nashville when Alexander was around 18 months old. Before we put an offer on our house, we toured Glendale Elementary school to get a feel for the neighborhood and the school within it. Alexander has been so excited about starting at a new school.
His teacher this year is Ms. Lash. I'm excited to get to know her and wonder how we'll do that since we drop Alexander off and pick him up without seeing the teacher. It's going to be an adjustment (for me!!).
Here's Alexander relaxing in his classroom at Sneak-a-Peek, the day before the first day of school.
And here he is on the first day of school! I kept the tears in, don't worry! Doesn't he look handsome in his school 'uniform'? They have to wear a shirt with a collar with navy, khaki, or black bottoms. I had to do some last minute shopping because cargo shorts aren't allowed. We only had one pair of non-cargo shorts!!
I took a few pictures before this but they all came out foggy because the camera was cold and it was HOT outside, even at 7:45am!Did I mention that it was hot? And sunny?

Welcome to Miss Lash's class! Spanish immersion!!
The first (half) day was a success. Alexander wrote and sent us a post card, drew a picture of a rainbow, and made a friend named Max. He likes his teacher and thinks that it will be a great year.
