Look out KINDERGARTEN...here she comes!

Hello everyone in blogland.

I am proud to announce that I did NOT cry this morning when we dropped Jayla off for her first day of Kindergarten :-). Oh my goodness you guys, she was bouncing off the walls this morning. She was a little unhappy about having to be awakened at 6:30am...but as soon as I reminded her that it was FINALLY Monday AND her first day of big school, she jumped out of bed. And quickly informed me that she'd be having her usual for breakfast (Kraft Macaroni & Cheese and milk...with a straw).

Jayla didn't even finish her breakfast of champions this morning, because she was so ready to "hit the road". After getting dressed in the outfit she's had picked out for 3 weeks :-), we got the hair done and she was ready for pictures. Isn't she cute?

We can't head off to school without giving grandma a big ole hug first :-). Today is also grandma's 84th birthday. So this is a special day for everyone.

Gotta have that "at the front door" picture every year :-). She sure makes Bermuda shorts look good, doesn't she? lol

"Mom, take one where you can see my Princess back pack!"

Let's not forget the one by THE tree. This one was kinda awkward to take. The grass was a little damp and little missy wasn't real happy about getting her new sneakers all "dewey" :-).

There is no way I can explain to you how crowded the school parking lot was this morning. There were people parked all along the street, in the parking lot and in the grass. We were able to get the ole van up over the curb and on the grass. Jayla asked daddy to carry her out of the van so her new sneakers wouldn't get dewey again :-).

Look how little she is. She's too small to be going to big school. But look at that big, proud grin...I know she'll be fine.

Jayla was glad to hear that her new teacher, Ms. Freeman LOVES morning hugs. Well, she got the right student in her class for that this year :-).

I can't wait to hear about Jayla's first day of school when I pick her up this afternoon. I hope the excitement she's feeling today stays with her throughout the school year.

I think I'm gonna forego the "Inspired to INSPIRE" today. I mean, I'm pretty inspired already by the fact that this morning wasn't as sad as I thought it would be.

Have a great day. And Be inspired...I am!!!

Does she really eat that for breakfast every day?
