Phoenix's First Day of Kindergarten

The day that Phoenix has been waiting for so long finally arrived.  His first day of Kindergarten.  He has been waiting to go for almost 10 months.  

Were there any tears shed?  Certainly not from Phoenix.  He was disappointed when I told him that I was walking him into school, and he let go of my hand before we entered the school doors.  My heart broke a little, but I knew it would be like this.  Phoenix is ready to grow up and be "super way stronger", he doesn't usually like be "little".  He thought that he would grow a few inches last night (because he has to be a big boy to go to Kindergarten), and around 10 pm he was still awake and I went in to his room to ask him why.  "I haven't grown bigger yet!" was his reply.  I assured him that if he went to sleep he would grow (and he wakes up with growing pains 3-4 times a week so it wasn't a lie).  He really did look taller today.  Until I picked him up in the carpool line...then he looked unbelievable small (which is how I want him to stay...for a little longer).

Audrey was overjoyed not be going to school.  She kissed him goodbye, and held my hand (swinging) as we walked out.  

When he got home I asked him about his day.  He got to play on the computers, and there was an itsy bitsy spider song on there that was "super funny", he ate lunch in the cafeteria, and he burped during lunch, but he said "excuse me" and his teach said "good job!", he went pee two times, and he farted once while he was going pee in the bathroom, he said his letters and what sounds they make, he went down a baby blue slide, and he made two friends (neither of which he learned the name).  I have to laugh at his run down of his first day.  I missed him, the day dragged on, and when I asked him if he missed me he said "Yes!  Actually, no!"  My little buggy is growing up...
