Last Thursday was Noah’s first day of kindergarten! Can you believe that??? He’s growing up fast!
Here are a few fun pictures from that morning.
And here are some pictures of Noah getting on the school bus. He was so excited! He has about a ten-minute bus ride to school; there’s only one other stop on the route.
I’m sure you’re curious why school is starting so early. Our neighborhood school is a year-round school. Noah will have a shorter summer but longer breaks in the fall and spring.
There are eight kindergarten classes in Noah’s school, and each class has around 23 kids. Yeah, that’s a lot of kindergarteners! Because Noah’s preschool is in the same neighborhood as the elementary school, quite of few of his friends are with him too – so exciting!
Another aspect that made the transition easier is that Noah was already familiar with the school. We play at the school’s playgrounds quite often, and we’ve been inside a number of times for book fairs, voting and various community events.
Here are a few photos of Noah in his classroom. We snapped these during an open house for the families. Yeah, it’s definitely a fun room!
And here’s a short video of Noah talking about his first day at school: what they did in the classroom, what they did at recess, what they had for lunch, his preschool buddies that are there, etc. He had a lot to say!

As a fun flashback, here are a few photos of Noah’s first day of preschool three years ago. Yeah, he’s sure grown since then!
Noah’s first day of kindergarten was definitely a success! Stay tuned to read more about his adventures this school year!
