First Day Excitement!

Hello, Happy Holiday! I am getting ready to get back to school this week so I thought I would post this school card. I love to see all the kindergartner kiddos coming through the door on the first day. They are all excited (and a little nervous) when the bus door opens and into the school they come. They are very happy to see a lot of the staff smiling and ready to help them find their way to their new class. Within 2 weeks they are pros though and need no help and want no help as they get off the buses.

Here are some wonderful challenges that fit my card

Seeing those books, busses, crayons, pencils, blackboard and teacher gives me fond memories of my own 30 years of teaching. You captured the gist of that first day. Could that teacher's smile be any bigger? I hope this school year brings you many smiles, yours and the children's. Thanks for sharing with us at The Perfect Sentiments Challenge.
