All About Kindergarten

Sam had an Authors’ Breakfast at school today.

He has a student teacher and this was her “project” for the class. The whole class wrote and illustrated books about Kindergarten.  They invited all the parents to come in this morning for muffins and the kids shared their books.

It was so cute!
Here’s Sam with his book. It was also PJ Day – for a fifty cent donation to the schools Relay for Life Team (ACS) the kids got to wear their PJ’s. He wanted to be sure the sticker and glow necklace were in the picture.

And yes, he is wearing Halloween PJ’s in April. It’s all we had – since he wore his PJ shorts for three days in a row as “real” shorts and I can’t get either kid to actually wear PJ’s to bed, he has to go with what we’ve got!

Proud Mom & Son (I also took the “just out of bed” look for PJ day)

Sorry if this is long, but I want to share Sam’s book. Since the blog is mostly for family, I figured the rest of you wouldn't mind!

His teacher kept it for now – it will be coming home in a few weeks. I tried taking pictures of each page, but Sam confiscated the camera so pardon the picture quality! I will “translate” it as well –for those not used to Kindergarten spelling!
