Kindergarten, a milestone in the making.
I think it's been quite an easy transition for Malcolm. This week he's only been attending school 1-2 hours a day. They don't call it gradual entry for nothing. Actually, we have his daycare to thank. The routine that he's established there has certainly made the world of difference. The irony of it all is that his school day is only from 9-3 whereas his days at daycare were 8:30-4. He's so relieved that there's no more nap during the day. He's certainly tired by the end of the school day, he's asleep as soon as he hits the pillow. In fact, he fell asleep on the way to his first soccer practice this evening. It's certainly going to be a busy month, kindergarten, soccer, swimming and even skating lessons. There's some concern that he's overscheduled, but Roger thinks that keeping him busy will ultimately be better for him. I know he needs exposure to all these different things. We can't even imagine when Melody starts all her activities, whoa it's going to be even busier! The picture above is a little triptych that Roger created to mark his first day of kindergarten. He's growing up fast!
