First up? Kindergarten round-up for my baby boy! I can't believe my little baby Henry is big enough to go to Kindergarten!!! I took half the day off so I could take Henry to his new school. Things started a little rough when they asked Henry to wear a scorpion (the school mascot) necklace with his name on it. He was not having it! But after some convincing from me, he reluctantly put it on. Now I am used to the way our school does Kindergarten round-up so I was not prepared for the teacher to actually TAKE the kids away while the parents sit and listen to the presentation. I thought for sure Henry would freak out and not want to go but as you can see from the picture below, he grabbed the teacher's hand and didn't even look back! There was not one tear… well from Henry. There was plenty from me! My baby left me without even a glance back in my direction. Now of course this is a good thing but I was still sad my baby was growing up.
Henry is in the bright green shirt.
He was so involved, he didn't even see me come in!
My big boy playing with pattern blocks :)
The next big group of pics is from the end of March when it was getting warm out and all the kids wanted to do was play outside :)

I snuck a picture while he was listening to rules the first day.
Finally found Henry a Baymax :)
Spencer and I had to get the car serviced on day while Henry was in class. We had to wait at the dealership for over two hours… so not fun!
She ate a crap-ton of junk food that day.
Henry got a new Buzz kite.
Spencer and I had a Starbucks date. It was nice having some time with just Spencer but she and I missed Henry while he was in class.
