First Day of Kindergarden

My first baby is already ready for school, but am I? I walked her to the bus stop this morning, waited anxiously with her for the bus to arrive, then reluctantly encouraged her to get on the big yellow school bus. She slowly went up the stairs, the doors shut and the bus drove away. All day I was thinking of her and what activities she was doing. The day was really long. Then it approached 2:20pm, the time the bus drops her off. I gathered up the other girls and trotted off to the bus stop once again. As the bus approached my only thought was I hope McKenna remembered what stop to get off at. Then, I saw her little head pop up and walk down the isle. She had a huge smile on her face as she stepped off the bus. Her first day was success! As we walked home she told me all about the cafeteria(she loves to eat) and how she got to color pictures. I am so glad that the first day is over. Now, we look forward to the rest of the year! Here are a couple of pictures from this morning.

I have been anxious all day also, I am so glad to hear that McKenna's 1st day is over and that it was fun. She really is a brave, big girl to go to Kindergarten all by herself.

It's waaaaay harder on us mom's than it is the kids isn't it? I hope she had a great first day. (and you too!)
My girl who started Kindy Fri. wore that same shirt today! She would have worn it on the first day or school but it was too cold for shorts. :)
Happy Birthday to you Aislynn too!!
