Welp, it was bound to happen, and it finally did. The boy started kindergarten today.
If you follow this blog, then you may know that this kid loves his sports. I even enter him in races whenever I get the chance. Like that time at Disney when he won his heat!
Anyway, he asked to have a “boy’s day” over the weekend. I had a ton to do around the house, but gladly put it aside to hang with the lil man. I just had to wake up extra early to get my run in first! 9+ sweaty miles.
After that I showered and we went to watch the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle movie. Luckily I had some free passes when I won my age group at a recent 5k…score! He really enjoyed the flick!
Then we went to the sporting goods store to get him some soccer shoes. But we got a little distracted with all the toys there…
And we ran into this guy…
We also grabbed a bite at one of our fave tex mex joints. And went to the park so he could play on the playground. By the time we got home, I was exhausted.
I was hoping to lay on the couch for a while, and so I asked the boy if he wanted to play a game on the computer (thinking that might distract him), but he said, “No. I’d rather hang out with you. It’s boy’s day after-all.”
I couldn’t resist that. I sucked it up and played “battle” with him until it was time to settle down to a movie of his choice.
The night before his first day of school, I also got a chance to relax with him on the patio in the same way we did 5 years ago…
Which brings us to this morning. The lil one was offer to lower education.
Before we left I gave him a hung and some last minute advice…
Like they say, time really does go fast. So crazy.
How bout you? Facebook feed overrun with first day of school pics? Want to join our tough guy crew? Anyone else see TMNT?
