I knew this day would come...

but I was not really prepared for it. My DD started school today! I can't believe she's old enough to go to school. She was so excited to go, until after we dropped off sister at a friends house. Then, she did not want to go to school. But, we got there, and she was just fine. Today was pretty easy because I got to stay with her. It was an orientation day. But next week... I'm not ready for her to grow up this fast! Thank goodness I don't have to put her on a school bus just yet! Then I know I would be balling!

Okay, here is one pic of her getting ready to leave. It's completely unedited... BTW, can't tell here, but my walls are cranberry, not purple... Anyhow, she had a bit of a fit about wearing a really cute purple dress to school, so we ended up with this skirt & shirt. She picks today to decide to care about what she is wearing! :-) Isn't that just the way kids are... deciding your plans are not their plans - I guess I need to remember that part of parenting is about teaching your kids to be independent!

This is her "mom please stop taking my picture" look. It's not the best pic, but it's the only one I got where she wasn't standing weird, pretending to look at me, looking at the ceiling, you know typical kid pictures...

Thanks so much for another great list! Your DD looks adorable for her first day of school! I remember what a hard day that was for me...they grow up so fast. My DD has been teaching kindergarten for 5 years and she says the children do just fine once the parents are gone, so she will probably handle it better than you!!
