The 25th was a trial run...her kindergarten assessment day.
She. LOVED. it.
And we got the complete play by play run down that evening. The whole schedule of events for the day. Including bathroom breaks.
On the 27th we went to find out her assigned class for the year. She got a brand new, super sweet, very excited to be teaching kindergarten, teacher. And her assistant teacher is a member at our pool. Perfect!
And on the 31st (which also happened to be Daniel's 7th birthday...almost too much for a Mama's heart on one day), she went for her first real day of kindergarten. Of course it rained like crazy that morning, making our usual walk impossible.
So Ian let the six of us out at carpool and I followed Natalie and Daniel down the hall as he took her hand and escorted her to class. She was super confident and barely stopped to give me a smile before waving (obviously my dismissal) and heading to her desk.
I managed to keep myself busy and couldn't wait to hear how her day went.
While she was pretty exhausted...and therefore not extremely talkative...her expressions convey just as much as 1000 words could have.
Kindergarten was a hit.
And this little one?
