Lilah's First Day

Today was Lilah's First Day of School!  She is officially a Kindergartner at St. Joe School.  On Monday night, we went to "Meet the Teacher" night and dropped off all of her supplies and had an ice cream treat.  Yesterday, we laid out her uniform and backpack and went to the store to pick out special donuts for breakfast.

Last night, she fell asleep around 8:30 which wasn't too bad for how excited she was.  BUT, I heard her up at 4:30 this morning and had to keep trying to get her back to sleep.  Once we were up and got her ready, we dropped her off this morning.  We all went in on the first day and took a few pictures.  She was able to stay in her classroom and color.  She didn't shed a single tear!  She hugged me extra tight, but then sat down and was ready to go!

We ran into our neighbor CJ this morning.  He told his mom that he didn't play with his friends at recess because he wanted to make her feel comfortable.  How sweet!

I was more anxious to pick up Lilah than I was to drop her off.  It seemed like the line took forever!  She had a GREAT day!  According to her, she like the mashed potatoes, made 5 friends, and didn't want the day to be over.  It brought tears to my eyes to see her.  She looked so grown up!  Tomorrow, Brian will just pull up, drop her off, and she will walk in herself.  How did it happen that I have three school aged children?  Don't blink!
