Yep, it’s that time of year again. Thank goodness!
Here’s a few pics of getting ready for the first day of school. Tegan is back at Keystone Montessori and Tory is now in Kindergarten!
I picked Tory up on Wednesday and his teacher, Miss Sylvie, asked him to tell me what he did today. Typical kid, he’s says something like, ‘What? I don’t know.’ Turns out he read his first two books. They’re Bob Books, Mat and Sam. Pretty simple of course, but Miss Sylvie was pretty excited, saying he picked them up and started reading, bam bam bam without having to sound out the letters. Apparently when they get it, it comes like a flood. He’s been reading a few others since then.
My mom used to take a picture of us kids on the front steps of our house on the first day of school each year – so it’s only right that we get one of Tory on his first day of preschool. He’s been so excited to go, it’s fun to see the day finally come.
His friend Sophia is going to the same school too so he’s got a buddy to lean on. There are many new friends there to make too though and I’m glad that he’ll be able to branch out a little from his current circle.
