Thane's First Day of Kindergarten

Thane started Kindergarten on September 8th. He had been worried about switching schools because somehow he thought it would mean everything would change, even his family. Dave went to two activities at school with him the week before he started, so he was comfortable with someone coming and staying, but I was worried that our leaving would stress him out so I made him a schedule of his day that he could refer to. It showed that I was going to pick him up, and had a photo of him and I smiling. It seemed to help, he referred to it for a little while, and then was thrilled when I picked him up at noon.

Taking his waffle on the road to finish on the way to school, and checking out his schedule for the day.

At the end of the day, he was rewarded with this certificate.
