So Lucas started kindergarten this week. How can my little Lucas be in kindergarten already? Didn't he just turn 3? I seriously can't believe how quickly he has grown up -- my high energy, creative, sweet and thoughtful boy was ready for the next step. We absolutely love our preschool (if anyone needs a recommendation in the Berkeley area, let me know!) and I cried my eyes out when he graduated. But when I asked Lucas how he felt about going to kindergarten, he said, "I'm ready!"
On day one of kindergarten, emotions went from super excited to shy to so ready. The transition went smoothly and no tears were shed from either Lucas or us (surprisingly). Maybe they will come later, maybe not. But I'm just so proud of my little guy! And I'm so grateful to our preschool/teachers who really prepared him in every way for this next big step.
