Last Days of Kindergarten 2017

James is done with Kindergarten! He's so little and basically perfect right now that I would totally stop time if I could (except that Miranda is a threenager so I definitely wouldn't stop time). The Kindergarten Move-Up Ceremony was Monday, and they split the class into two to minimize the craziness, so we really only saw half the class "moving up." They mostly sang a bunch of really funny pop song covers but with new lyrics about entering first grade.

Afterward, we went back to the classroom to give Mr. J a gift from the class. It included a big art project from the kids and gift cards to every conceivable thing in our town.

Tuesday, we had some early summer relaxing with his friends Kyle and Nicholas.

Thursday was the real last day- a half day. We out him on the bus in the morning, and picked him in the afternoon to leave for Cape Cod.

I asked him about his Kindergarten classes, to get a sense of what his little life was like. The things I knew were that he got on the bus every morning at 8:54 a.m., and school started 9:45. He also had a snack every day at 10:30 and his lunch at 1:30, followed by a brief recess. He got on the bus at 3:15, and after a long time waiting to get on the bus at the end of the day, he'd get home at 4:20-4:30 p.m.

He told me that: "Mondays is music in the morning, Tuesdays is art in the afternoon, Wednesday is gym in the morning, Thursday is computer class in the morning and library in the afternoon, Friday is gym in the morning, and on the bus you could sit in the back even if you aren't a 1st grader yet.

My favorite thing is gym because I get to run around a lot. Computer was my second favorite, my third favorite was art, and my last favorite was music."
