Meet the Principal/Transportation day!

Well, our transition to Kindergarten has begun! Today was Meet the Principal/Transportation day! Natalie has admitted to me that she is nervous, but I think after today she feels a little bit better. We arrived at 9am. Mr. Wheaton introduced himself and he showed the kids the first of many procedures they will be learning over the next few weeks. It was all about active listening today while he read them a book about starting Kindergarten. Afterward, we left to go take a bus ride. Before we got on the bus, Natalie gave Mr. Wheaton the picture she colored last night. I thought it was so sweet of her to do that! Natalie loved the bus ride. To think that 29 years ago I took the same exact bus ride with my Mom.
This is Natalie with Mr. Wheaton. He really is a WONDERFUL Principal for these little ones! I LOVE how this picture turned out, too! EXACTLY how I had envisioned it!
After our school fun, we went to the library and picked up Natalie's winning picture from the library. I "think" I posted that she had won FIRST PLACE in the coloring contest at the library. We got the call the day she had her tonsils out/tubes in. Here she is with her picture in the library
And here is just the picture
