And I Quote

... Henry, The Official Kindergartner




1. I didn’t learn how to read.
2. Some poor kid cried the whole time.
3. I want to buy my lunch on pizza day.
4. I didn’t get to go to the principal’s office (this is actually a reward for several consecutive days of good behavior – not a punishment – this really confused me until I looked it up on the teacher’s website).
5. I only made one friend today but maybe I will make another one tomorrow.
6. I used the bathroom many, many times.
7. There is a boy in our class who can’t eat peanut butter or he will die.
8. Can I go back to school tonight or do I have to wait until tomorrow?
9. I got a smiley face (sticker) because I was good.
10. I didn’t eat all of my lunch because I was talking to my friends.

Well isn't that just the sweetest thing? Such a big little guy you have there Adrienne!

My Sean starts first grade tomorrow. I'll be interested to hear what he has to say about his first full day of school ever!

nice header :o) I'm glad he had a lot to say about school. Was he totally exhausted that night? How did John do since big brother wasn't around?

Yay Henry! Sounds like it was a darn good first day!

Joy said...

I love those words on school...and just so honest! ;) I hope that the second day goes as well as the first!

How cute. I used to teach kindergarten and all those things sound very familiar. Seems like he had a great time.

Man! He didn't learn to read on the first day? What is this world coming to? The bathroom remark cracked me up. Sometimes you just gotta go alot. Sounds like the perfect first day. And he wants to go back. Even better!

Love your new header. Ah, fall time!
