It seems like yesterday that I was sitting at my computer in tears over Boo’s first day of preschool. And now here I am, writing about the first day of KINDERGARTEN. My mind is blurry from crying so much and I just can’t concentrate on anything but how much I miss my little firecracker!
We started the school fun last night with a surprise visit from the Back to School Fairy. She brought a little diary so Boo could write all about her time in Kindergarten. I can’t wait to see what she writes!
It was my daughters idea to practice the right way and the wrong way to get up in the morning. I love to see her nervous energy used towards practicing routines :). After a special blessing from Daddy that she would be safe and enjoy this school year we headed to bed. I read a bunch of school themed books- including the classic The Night Before Kindergarten.
After a restless night of sleep (at least for me!) I woke up Boo and she was excited. I know when she is excited first thing in the morning because she wakes up just chattering away. This morning she was talking about how she woke up really early saying it had to at least have been 10:30 in the morning. And how she woke up when it was half light and half dark and laid in bed waiting for a dream to come, but one never did. She just cracks me up sometimes!
We had a special morning breakfast, some pictures on the front porch, had a few extra minutes to play with stuffed animals, and then we were off to school! The traffic may have been crazy, finding her teacher outside amidst a gazillion kids a bit of a challenge, but by far the hardest part of the day was saying goodbye. Yes, I was that mom that was sobbing all the way home. I go pick up my little dear in 20 minutes and I just can’t wait to hear about her day!
