Maybe I should be, but I'm really not. Seth starts Kindergarten on Monday. We've gone and met his teacher, seen the school, and done all of the obligatory back to school things. He has his big backpack (KU thankyouverymuch), school clothes, new shoes and is so super excited he can hardly stand it.
Everywhere I look Moms are freaking out that their children are starting Kindergarten. Sure, it is a bit surreal for me since I remember my first day of Kindergarten...but I am not freaking out.
I'll tell you why.
In Utah, Kindergarten is only 2 1/2 hours a day. Yep, 2 1/2 hours. This is like free preschool. Now, I don't want all day Kindergarten, I don't think that 5 year olds are ready for that yet, but REALLY??? 2 1/2 hours?!?! He went to preschool for longer than that.
So, I am not freaking out. I wish he'd be gone a little longer actually. This is going to be good for both of us, we need time apart.
He is going to do great, have fun and learn so much. He can't wait and really, neither can I!
