School's In Session!

Carter started Transitional Kindergarten this week (the first year of a two-year Kindergarten program for kids who are not yet five years old). He was fine but I was a bundle of anxiety and nerves. He is going to a big elementary school with so many kids (during the overlap there are 32 kids in his class!) I can't imagine how his teacher handles this but she does! Carter's teacher is Mrs. Reddick and he loved her right from the start! What a relief. She is very sweet and kind and after his first day of school he told me that his favorite things were Mrs. Reddick and that they had a fun slide on the playground! Yesterday he came home chatting about building blocks, playing with teddy bears, and reading books. So far it has been a success and he is really happy so whew! Archie is NOT happy about Carter being in school all day. He cried when I told him he couldn't go until he was 4 years old. His response: "Look! 1, 2, 3, 4. See?! Now I am 4!"
Even though he is growing up, his cuteness factor seems to exponentially grow right along with him.

New Mario Brothers backpack!

His first assignment was to decorate this puppet to look like himself to share with his class.

Archie HAS to wear Carter's backpack after pickup.

After I picked Carter up on Friday we decided to head over to Disneyland to celebrate the end of a great first week! We met my friend Joanna and her little boy Mateo and explored the happiest place on earth. It was SO EMPTY! After a crazy crowded summer we could not believe how short the lines were--nothing over 15 minutes. It was wonderful! Archie rode his very first rollercoaster ever--the ToonTown one--and loved it! But the highlight for my kids was meeting Thor and Captain America. Archie looked at Captain America and said, "You are my favorite!"

Jungle Cruise with Mateo!

Waiting in line for the roller coaster!

Proof that the night was a success!
