i finally got organised and booked Monte into kindy. today was his first day:
(as well as what he wore, we'll never forget that Monte was also going through a phase of putting his hands down the back of his pants when he began kindy! awesome.)
with his support crew:
being a home schooling family we have to do everything together. this is often awkward and the opposite of easy. and honestly i was dreading piling the troops out of the car to take Monte into kindy today (i mean, who does that??) but then i see this picture, and am really grateful that he had His Team with him to share his first day.
Jada and Ty both went to this kindy so they had a great time showing him around (and reminiscing!)
remember this kid?? the excrutiatingly shy one who wore sunglasses to family christmas so no one would "see" him? well, he ROCKED it today. in fact, he's been rocking it so much for the last 6 months that it is sometimes hard to remember just how shy he used to be (how shy? painfully, frustratingly.)
and so, my advice to mums with shy babes? consider their age and patience may just be your best cure :)
