We had a bit of a restless night in anticipation of the big day. Sarah woke up twice.... I think she was really anxious, but when the alarm went off early this am, she was all smiles and ready to get dressed to go meet her new classmates.
It was a beautiful morning with just a slight chill in the air, Sarah continued to smile as we walked through the parking lot, but once we reached the sidewalk and we told her it was time to go in, she got a little hesitant.
Our school will not allow the parents to take them to the classroom. We have to part ways curbside where the staff teams each Kindergarten student up with an 8th Grader who will walk them into their teacher. As soon as Sarah set eyes on the big girl with the braids, the smile reappeared and off she went without shedding a tear. We were SO PROUD OF HER!
Even though it is all day Kindergarten, the first week they are breaking them in with half days.
At noon she came out of the school as happy as could be......
(don't you just love the missing tooth smile)
She was just beaming and could not wait to tell me about her day!
First and foremost on her list was to tell me how comfy her new glittery shoes were...and that she didn't even get blisters...LOL!!!
Next she told me that her name tag had been falling off all morning, but she had to keep it on so other people would know who she was.
After those two very important facts, she said that they colored, ate snacks, and went outside to play.
It was an all around TERRIFIC FIRST DAY!
Right now, she is passed out on the couch, totally exhausted.
Time to wake her up or we could have another sleepless night:)
