Magic Bus

Tuesday was a very historic day in the Wile household. Ethan rode the school bus for the first time to his first official day of kindergarten!!! We can hardly believe how fast these last six years have gone!
He was so excited to be one of the "big kids" and to be taking the bus to school! Although, he did have to double check that morning, that if the bus ride wasn't all it was cracked up to be, would I drive him to school the next morning? Well, that time never came because he loved the bus!
I have to admit that I am a little bit of a control freak. So, putting my baby on a bus and having no control over whether he gets to where he needs to be or not was not an easy thing for me! I was so used to drive him to preschool, walking him in and getting him settled in before I said good bye. I liked it that way much better!!! Although, I have to admit that not having to rush so much in the morning to get him to school is a nice perk of the bus ride!!!
We are very happy that everything that we have heard from Ethan about kindergarten has been very positive. He really seems to enjoy it and he likes his teacher Mrs. Shelley. I think that he is enjoying the independence of kindergarten and the change of scenery!
Overall, it has been a very positive experience and that has made it easier on Mom! It is hard to see him growing up but it is also very exciting at the same time. I am looking forward to this new chapter in his life and for the all the firsts yet to come!
