........is officially a KINDERGARTNER!!!!
Yesterday, we went to our local ZOO for our city's day of celebration, "Smooth Sailing Into Kindergarten", in honor of all the little kiddos heading to "BIG BOY/GIRL" School!! The guests of honor, and their families, are treated to a fun day of musical entertainment, arts & crafts, lunch, admission to the zoo and a great opportunity to get to meet other children who may be heading to the same school this September. A great day to celebrate all that they have learned in preparation of kindergarten. After all, learning the ABC's, identifying shapes, colors and numbers AND being able to write your whole name is REALLY.HARD.WORK. Another wonderful milestone definitely worth celebrating!
Here are a few pics of the day! Unfortunately, Landon was unable to accompany us as he had a date with his OT!!
(Elijah running around to the music! Oh the energy this boy has, if I only had a 1/4 of it!! lol:)
(Big brother Mason, giving Elijah a pep talk and letting him know that he will be there to show him the ropes!)
(Mason introducing Elijah to a couple of his friends....it's always nice to know the upper.class.men!)
(And finally, some pizza for lunch, to help refuel all that ENERGY!!)
I must confess, we did not stay as long as I had anticipated!! Elijah was sure to point out that seeing it was HIS day, he got to call all the shots for the day. So off we went, back home, to play the Wii!!!
Gotta love this kid!!!
And this little munchkin was waiting to hear all about Elijah's big day!
And by the look on his face, I would have to say, that he was quite IMPRESSED!!
Elijah is so "SUPER" excited about heading to kindergarten this fall. I just hope his energy level drops a bit. Lord knows, I can't keep up with him, and by the looks of it..............neither can Landon!!
