first day of kindergarten

 On Wednesday, September 5th, Finley started Kindergarten at Buena Vista Elementary (a Spanish Immersion school).  

 Mama had fun helping him pick out a new backpack & lunch bag.  Cedar was excited about his new lunch bag too!  He didn't get to start Preschool this week, but he was more than ready!

 Dad was pretty jealous that Finley got to go to school - Kenton loves school!  ;)

 One more pos from the little brother so no one feels left out.  :P

 I skipped out on a staff meeting at work so that I could take Finn to school.  We met up with Griffin at Memaw & Papa's house & walked over together.  These lucky cousins get to be in the same class!

 Waiting for his teacher to open his classroom!

 Don't they look like big kids?

 I was dragging my feet the week before, dreading the start of school...mostly because it meant I was back to work, but partially because it was a little sad for this Mama to see her oldest baby getting so old!  :)  When did he get old enough for elementary school?!

 Griffin & Finley got to sit at the same table...for about a week.  :P  But his teacher said she was able to move them to different tables because she knew she could trust them.  That makes Mama (& Auntie) so proud!  Way to go, Griff & Finn!

All five of the cousins that attend Buena Vista this year.
Sadie (4th), Finley (Kinder), Griffin (Kinder), Cohen (1st), & Ronan (3rd)

I think school for these five is going to be so much fun!  Can't wait to hear them all speaking spanish to each other.  :)

I can't believe that Finn is old enough to go to REAL SCHOOL! When did all my friends' kids get so OLD!

Wow, those boys are growing up fast! They look great. That school sounds like a ton of fun, wish I could go.
