Getting ready for Kindergarten!

Adam will start kindergarten in the fall.  Some days I'm really excoted about that fact.  Other days I'm kind of sad that my boys are growing up so fast.  The Edmonds School District had a little fair the other day where you could go and learn about all the different activities and programs that are available.  You could also go meet the principal at your school and pick up registration packets.  We decided to go check it out.  It was held at the new Lynnwood highschool.  Adam met and talked to a couple of members of the school board, he shook hands with the principal of his school, he talked to the office manager of his school and told her that his grandma works in a school office too, and we picked up the packet to get him registered for kindergarten.  Then we walked around to see what else there was. 
Both boys had fun at the music station.
The best time was had in the gym where they had a bunch of sports activities set up.   

And then we got to ride a school bus.  Adam thought that was pretty cool!  Jackson just wanted to walk up and down the aisles.  He wasn't too happy about having to stay in one seat once the bus started moving. 

 It was a fun way to spend the morning, and now Adam is even more excited about starting kindergarten!  We are hoping that Adam is able to go to kindergarten full time in the fall.  The current part time schedule is - full days Monday, Wednesday and every other Friday, or Tuesday, Thursday and every other Friday.  There is a lottery for full time kindergarten (and we have to pay for it), but we are hoping that Adam gets in.  He will turn 6 years old right after school started, and he is ready for school!
