Well, we survived the first week of Kindergarten! A bit weary, but we've made it through.
This face pretty much sums up our week.

If you had seen Nathan this morning, you'd have thought he was part Octopus. Clinging to me with every tentacle and ounce of strength he has. I'd manage to peel one hand off, then he'd wrap his other hand/arm around me or latch on to my shirt or trousers or keys.
And again, once he was a bit away from me, he was fine...through the door and lining up to sign in.
This afternoon, he told me quite a bit about his day. The teacher has some stuffed animals in the classroom that the kids get to cuddle with during their rest time. Nathan was in charge of passing them out today. He got to cuddle with the otter. He also got to hold the door open on the way to and from recess. He sounds so proud when he talks about being responsible for these things.
So, that's the full report on the first week of Kindergarten. Thanks for all your comments, suggestions and support. :)
