My baby started kindergarten

OH MY...I can hardly believe my baby started kindergarten today. She did GREAT...mom cried on the way home. It's a crazy feeling when your little one goes to school for the first time. With Bradley I cried also dropping him off on his first day of first grade, but it was SO different.

She has been so excited about this day for so long...part of me is glad it is here so she doesn't have to ask..."How much longer till kindergarten". Last night she had a hard time falling asleep, she went to bed at 8:30 and came out at 9:05 and said she couldn't fall asleep. This morning she didn't want to get up until I said we have to get ready for school...then she all about jumped out of bed. She couldn't eat anything this morning...I think she was too nervous. All in all, we made it on time and leaving her and walking home was one of the hardest things I have done lately.

Ready to go...in her second 1st day outfit

Walking to school.

Walking....

Getting ready to go in.

Outside of the classroom...I don't think James gets what is going on

Becca and Mrs. Roth, putting her lunch on the board

Saying the pledge...with the wrong hand

Now with both...I swear she knows her right from her left.

Sitting in circle time...she was so engrossed we didn't even say goodbye

James...heading home without his BIG sister.

Don't get me wrong...I'm very excited about this next venture in her life...I just can't believe she is already going to school. Where does the time go? When she was born everyone said cherish this time...she will be off to school, college, married, having kids, etc. Boy were they right. If you have little ones...cherish them...they DO grow up too fast. I'm glad I still have 1 little one, that made the morning a bit easier. I'll be a basket case when he goes...ugh!!!

Oh my gosh! Becca is old enough for school! I can't believe how fast they grow up....

I had tears for you as I saw the pictures and read your comments. I haven't even had my baby yet and I dread sending her off to the first day of school. I just know I am going to be a complete mess.
