So, this was a big week over here in my household! My daughter, my only child, has started kindergarten. It’s been a huge transition because in our district, it’s all day kindergarten. It’s a very fun and exciting time for all of us, but I can’t help but feel a little sad that she’s growing up too quickly. I was telling Brent that I feel like we only get them for 5 short years, and then the schools get them for the rest. A little unfair and slightly exaggerated, I know, but I know it’s for her best.
She did really well this week and in fact by day 3 would run through the gate so that she could be the first one on the swings. She just learned how to swing on her own, and she’s so proud of herself! The only really hard day was yesterday when it dawned on her that this is an everyday thing. She cried and begged to come home with me. I held it together until she was out of site, then I cried. I know it will get easier, and I’m so thankful for her amazing teacher, who is so sweet and caring, just as I hoped she would be for my daughter.
Here are some pictures of her on her first day of school.
