First Day of School: Cullen 4k

Cullen started the new school year with a transition to 4k and a new school.  He is attending Cathedral Catholic school (4k - 2nd grade).  It's a little school with small classes and welcoming community feel. The first day went fine for Cullen, but I was a bit sad (as I was across the ocean attending a work meeting in Copenhagen, Denmark).  Dirk gets 100% credit for all pictures and parental first week of school duties.  As Dirk describes it, the kids gathered in the gym on the first morning and when it was time to go to his classroom, Cullen followed his teacher and was 20 yards up the hallway before Dirk could even catch up to him.  So far, Cullen loves his teacher (Mrs. Sutton), library time, gym class, the ability to choose hot lunch or your own bag lunch (ask him about "beanie weenies" #not a fan), and going to a school with some of his older friends from the neighborhood.  He also doesn't mind wearing a uniform (white, red or navy polo and khaki or navy pants) and looks very handsome.

Today is your day.
You're off to Great Places!
You're off and away!” 

“You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself any direction you choose.”
