She was very excited to start school at the "big school". Big school is not an exaggeration, there are 1800 students that go to her elementary school. That is grades PreK-4. There are 13 kindergarten classes. This is quite a change from what I grew up with. My graduating class had 189 students.
The day before school started we went for back to school pedicures, ate lunch out and went out for cupcakes. It was a fun time and the girls thought they were something special. That night we got everything ready for the next day and read "The Night Before Kindergarten."
The next morning went very smooth. I managed to hold the tears in until we left her. She didn't have any tears at all and started talking to her friends as soon as we got there.
Here she is ready to go (the clips in her hair are holding her bangs back as we grow them out).
Her second day was much better and she loves it now. I pray that she has a great year.
