First Day of K (indergarten)

It was Ashley's first day of kindergarten today...

HOW is this possible?  She's still so little!  (Although she's got the pose down pat, I'll give her that.)

She had such a great day.  She made some friends, ate her lunch, tried to take a nap on her nap mat but "the boys were being too noisy, mommy, ugh!", liked her teacher, and skinned her knee on the playground during recess (but got a super cool bandaid so all was well).

Before we dropped her off this morning, Aidan said "I gonna miss you, Ash-ee." 

Me too, buddy.  Me too.

And yes, I cried.  (It's mandatory when you drop your first child off at kindergarten.)

I'm so glad she had a great first day!! Our students don't begin the year until the 29th. I sure hope I'm ready by then!! I'd love it if you checked out the pictures of my new classroom on my blog. Please tell me what you think. Thanks so much!!!

crying is indeed mandatory. I thought I'd be a mess last year, but it turns out my Big Kiss was crying harder than me. That. Sucked. Glad your kiddo had a good day, skinned knee and all.

I cried like a baby when I Hayden got on the bus for the first time for kindergarten.

Its only natural.

And she is gorgeous. :)

Oh man, I STILL cry every single time after every single break, not just summer. I'm fairly pathetic.

She is so cute, and yes, she looks little! But you HAVE to take a comparison shot on her last day so we can see how much she's grown over the school year!

She does have the pose down, doesn't she? I'm glad that the first day went so well. I hope ours goes as smoothly.

Danae said...

She looks like she feels very grown up. :) I think it's mandatory to cry each time you drop your child off for that first day of kindergarten.
