>First Day of Kindergarten…

>Recently I came across this photo again of me on my first day of kindergarten.  I guess I was lucky as a child for two reasons, the first being I always seemed to be in the right place at the right time to get my photo taken and then put into the local newspaper.  The second mum was an AWESOME mum and went down to the local paper and bought prints of those photos…so back at her house in Haliburton I have a baby book filled with true black and white photos that were at one point in newspapers!  Hmmmmm where was I?

Yes, Kindergarten… although I don’t really remember much of my kindergarten years… I do remember some things… I went to two schools, since I moved after Christmas.  Here is the photo of ME on my FIRST day!!  It was September 1984- 26 years ago!!!

I’ve been thinking a lot about kindergarten, what that means because TODAY my nephew is going for his VERY first day… On the weekend I was skyping with him and he was so excited then! 
Part of me can’t believe how ‘big’ he’s gotten… it seems like it was yesterday that I was going to meet him for the first time in the hospital!  But now he’s a grown up school kid! 
From these photos I took this summer… you can totally tell!!

In May when I visited you had just gone to your ‘visit’ to Kindergarten and were so excited about the crayons, paper, letters and numbers you received there!
 I hope this excitement continues for MANY years to come!!

Samuel hope your day was amazing!  I can’t wait to hear about it via SKYPE! 🙂

..this was your reaction to my kiss!! (hmmmm I guess you are a ‘big’ boy now!)
(thanks to my Bro- Jamie for taking the previous awesome shots of me and Samuel!)
I love the fact that you love making funny faces in front of the camera, as much if not MORE than I do!! I guess we have that in common!!
Sending you lots of love from Winnipeg.. have a great first day!!
