This is Will on the morning of his first day of Kindergarten with his Schultute. In Germany kids get a Schultute on the first day of school filled with school supplies and goodies. Next year, he'll get a Schultute from school; St. Mary's practices the tradition of the German Village immigrants who founded the congregation. This year Mommy was happy to supply the Schultute.
This is Will in the cafeteria with his class, listening to the lovely welcome and prayer assembly led by our new pastor, Father Franks, and getting psyched up for Kindergarten adventures.
This is Soren after we left Will at school. He cried as many tears as Mommy. Daddy was the only brave one- I think he was a little excited, actually.
