Yesterday Steve gave all the kids father's blessings. He was able to use the priesthood to let them know his impressions as their father and from our Father in Heaven about things that will help them this year. It was particularly special this year.
One funny moment yesterday as I was reading to Seth and Steve said he thought Seth would just love reading once he sort of put everything together - Seth said, "Yeah, I think it will just take me 1 day of Kindergarten to learn to read. Maybe 2." We will see - maybe this was an amazing day!
This morning Steve got us some breakfast from Kolache Rolf's (kolaches are all over here - we had never heard of them before). I am letting the kids pick what to put in lunches this week so I packed what Seth asked for for all of them. The others will take turns the next few days. Seth was so excited and bouncy all this morning. Then we all walked together - I am so excited that we/they can always walk.
We went in the front doors. All the grades have their own hallway area with a big meeting space in the middle. As we got to the kindergarten hall Seth turned and said, "I know what to do now - you can go." Cracked me up. And he did - he has grown up around school and is so social and fun I think he is going to love school. I hope his fun personality comes out in class. We did walk him to class and give him a hug and he headed to his table to start.
