First Day of Kindergarten

Today Princess J started Kindergarten at Waterford Elementary School. I was grateful to have the opportunity to ride with J.....h on the Bus and attend a half day of school with her. She was very excited. It is full day Kindergarten so she will leave the house at 7:30 in the morning and get home at 3:30 in the afternoon. That is a very long day for a five year old. I know J.....h will do wonderful in school but I still can't help worrying about the big change that is coming into my little girls life. Susanna will miss her playmate terribly and I will miss J.....h's help and company. I am so pleased at what a wonderful girl J.....h has grown up to be and I hope her teacher and friends can learn to love and appreciate her like we do.

Wow, I really can't believe how fast time has gone by. Jennah looks all grown up. I'm so glad that you got to go with her on the first day. Her outfit is so darling. Her teacher looks so young, I'm sure Jennah will love her. I teared up looking at the picture of the two of you. It is amazing, what a special time in our lives.

Scary stuff! Marcus starts full day kindergarten in a couple weeks. I'm excited and terrified at the same time. Looks like you survived though.

Ahh! This is so sweet! I love this post. That is great that you were able to go with her on her first day. What a big day for Jennah and mommy! Hopefully not too many tears! (Coming from mom!)

she's like a mini-you, Corinne. So beautiful. Hope this year is a lot of fun for her. Good luck with coping during her away time. It's a big change. I was so sad when Josh left. Still am when he's gone. It's just not the same. These little ones grow up way too fast...

Our girls are growing up! Pretty good taste in clothes (Bryn picked out that exact same shirt to wear today). Isn't it so weird to be sending them off?!?
