1st Day Update

Hello again.

Well, the first day of kindergarten for Jayla went off without a hitch. She gets out of school at 2:10 and I was in the carpool line at 1:35pm, lol. I couldn't help it. I just couldn't wait to hear how her 1st day went.

Now, we live about 1.3 miles (give or take), from the school. This girl talked from the time she stepped up in the van until we got home. And to her, the most exciting part of her day was playing some game called Doggie Dog. I have NO clue what that is. And the fact that she has tried to explain it to me for the past 5 hours isn't shedding any light. Oh well, as long as she had a good time. And the other highlight of her day was having salad for lunch. She LOVES salad but the exciting part was having "Blue Trees" dressing on it :-).

Another exciting part of the day was the fact that Jayla got to be the very first line leader. That obviously puts one in the best of circles in the world of kindergartners :-).

I was pleased to hear that kindergartners still take naps. But I'm thinking that wasn't quite enough rest time for our little princess. She crashed and burned about 2 hours after getting home, lol. They must've worn my baby out today. I think she went into this day so excited that she finally came down from that high. Hopefully she won't be as worn out in the days to come.

Thanks to all of you for your sweet words of encouragement, as we go into this new chapter of childhood. It's gonna be a fun ride!

Anna Marie was the first "line leader" in her class too!

My little one told me that there was so much to tell me everyday that she just couldn't tell me it all - and that's saying a lot, because she gets her chatter box skills from me!
