1st day of Kindergarten

Wednesday, August 20, 2008

Our first day of school went great! She was ready for school and had no trouble taking her seat. We tried not to be offended when she didn’t even want to give us a kiss goodbye. It was as if she was thinking, “Ok, you can go now. I’ve been waiting for this for a long time…I’m good. See you later.”
I thought of her through out the day and was sentimental, but (to my surprise) I wasn’t an emotional wreck. In fact, the house was incredibly peaceful and it was awesome! I enjoyed the quiet time with my other girls. It made me realize how bothered I get by the sibling rivalry…it drives me crazy. I was recharged by some time without it, for sure.
We chose for her to go to kindergarten at Sterling. It is a university-model school and I plan on explaining what that is sometime soon. But we are very excited about this year she has ahead. Since I am teaching her at home 2 days a week, I know I’ll be stretched this year as I learn how to do this.
One more thing...we all have to wake up dark-early.  I was asked, "Why is school starting in the middle of the night?"  I didn't expect our front-porch pictures to be in the dark...and the rain.

I can't believe it! Ainsley looks so grown up. I was tearing up just looking at the pictures...I'm gonna be a wreck when it's my turn next year.

Oh she is so cute! I notice the sagging backpack over her butt! Is that still the trend! Maybe I am not getting so old after all!
