henrik's first day of kindergarten

On Wednesday my little Henrik started his first day of Kindergarten.  I can't believe that he is growing up so quickly.  We continued our tradition of making him a Schultuete for his first day of school.  This year to make his Schultuete I used wrapping paper and lined it with colorful butcher paper.  I filled it full of school supplies and treats, as well as the flying bird toy. henrik-kindergarten

I have to admit it was difficult for me to let him go to school.  Henrik is such a creative, happy, easy going kid and I love having him at home.  I wish I could just freeze time so that he'll always be my little innocent boy.  Henrik has really enjoyed his first couple of days of school, which has made the transition easier on both of us.
