First Day of Kindergarten!

Today, Mikayla went to her first day of Kindergarten.  When I woke her up at 6:45am (Ugh!), she said, “I get to go to school today!”

We started off the day with a yummy breakfast of blueberry muffins.IMG_0480 We took the traditional first day of school pictures.  I just love the pure excitement on her face. IMG_0481 IMG_0483 Since we were out of town and missed the Open House, Jeremy and I decided that for her first day, we would drive her to school and walk her in.  This is a picture of her outside of her school.IMG_0484 We were the first ones to her classroom and we met her teacher, Mrs. Brown.  She seems so nice and I am sure that Mikayla will really enjoy her. After Mikayla found her seat,  she sat right down and started doing her work.  She looks right at home doesn’t she?IMG_0486

The teacher was kind enough to offer and take a picture of Mikayla with us. IMG_0487 After she was settled in, she looked up at me and said, “It’s okay for you to go now.”  She wasn’t trying to shoo us out, but she was just letting me know that she was okay.  Her ability to adapt to new situations makes this new transition a lot easier on me.  I teared up a little bit when we were waiting outside school and then again when we were driving away.

I kept busy this morning by going to the gym, Walmart, the grocery store and the vet.   Gavin has occasionally asked, “Where is See-kah?”, but all in all, he has done okay.  I have done okay, too.  I miss her , but I have also enjoyed my one on one time with my little boy.  Now, I am just anxiously awaiting for the school bus to drop her off so I can hear about her day!
