Dear Zackery – Happy Day Before Kindergarten

I can’t believe you are getting so big. In less than 2 weeks you will be 5. Five, yes FIVE! In less than 24 hours you will be at your very first day of Kindergarten. Big boy school, not just preschool. This is real school, with classrooms and a library, a computer lab and a lunchroom. Wow, I just can’t believe it’s here. I know you are excited. I’m excited for you. I’m so proud of you and all that you have already learned. I can’t wait to see what you learn next.

I’m also a bit sad. I’m sure it’s normal. I’m sure I’ll have some tears in my eyes tomorrow. I’m also sure I’ll have a big huge smile! 🙂

I think we’re all set for tomorrow. We’ve already dropped off your school supplies, you have a brand new Cars 2 backpack, and we have everything you need for a hearty breakfast, a nutritious lunch and a yummy snack tomorrow. You’ve met your teacher, seen the classroom and been on the playground. I’m not sure how else I can prepare you (except of course with a million hugs and kisses – which I’ll try to do without causing a scene).

I love you so much little buddy. Mommy and Daddy (and Brayden) are all so proud of you. You are officially a Kindergartner now. Have fun and go learn!

  1. Awww – good luck on your first day too mom 😉

  2. Just because I’m a GRANDmother and not a mom, I are there next to you. My younger granddaughter turned five last Thursday. She’s all puffed up and ready for SK. I want to cry. How did time roar past us? Why didn’t I hear it roar? It’s going to race past no matter how we listen for it’s sound. I look forward to hearing about Zachery’s engagement in the new school year. He’ll be more FINE than mom, but you know that, right?

    • I completely know that he’ll be more fine than me. 🙂 He’ll go roaring into that classroom like he’s been there all year. He told me he’s most excited to meet new friends, and play with legos. Gotta love him!
