Ashley vs. Kindergarten

Guess who had Kindergarten Round-Up this week?  Yup, that's right....Miss Ashley Belle!

Kindergarten!  I mean, come on...really?!?  Didn't I just give birth to her like 20 minutes ago????

She doesn't actually start until next August. Which she was quite disappointed about, because kindergarten looks awesome.  I thought it looked pretty awesome too.  In fact, I wanna go to school there.  They have a computer lab!  And hot lunch!  And smart boards, whatever those are!

Ashley got to go to a little "practice class" with the other kids, while the parents all stayed back in the gym. 

When they called Ashley's group to go, I was all ready to walk her to her teacher to hand her off, but before I could even stand up, Ashley was gone. I waved and called out an "Oh - okay - see ya!" at her backside before she completely disappeared.

She is ready for kindergarten.  But is kindergarten ready for her?

Only 6.5 more months til we find out.

My kids are starting kindergarten in August too! They cannot wait to go "to the big kid school"! Why do we all want to grow up so fast?

aww - she is a DOLL!!!! My baby is in pre-k, so I'm guessing we will be doing the "kindergarten round up" thing soon too! :( I HATE this "growing up" business.....why can't they just stay little?! BOO!!!!

love her shirt. and eyes. and smirky smile. And at least you will feel better that she has the confidence to take it by storm.

I don't think Kindergarten has any idea the awesomeness that is about to come their way!!!

Ashley will ROCK it out!!

Ooooh, that's going to be tough for Mama! This won't be as bad as when the boys go, because they're your babies, but the first one - tough! That's going to be a long 6.5 months!!

Awww. It's crazy how fast they grow up. My son is doing his second year of Kindergarten, so it was no big deal to us this year, but last year? I was a mess. I was both so excited for him and so nervous, and heartbroken that my baby was already starting kindergarten.

Yay! How exciting! I'm hoping to switch from teaching 2nd grade to teaching Kindergarten next year. And Smartboards are the coolest things ever. I use mine all the time at work. Ashley will love it.
