And so she's growing up.....

Today was the day and first and foremost....A BIG THANK YOU TO EVERYONE for all the wonderful comments and support! I made it through.....and it wasn't that bad (I only lost it a couple of times). Of course she had a ball and can't wait to go back tomorrow. =) She says Mrs. Jones was really funny and she made some new friends. Here's a couple of pictures I took this morning....she wasn't all that enthused but it had to be done.....the camera came out! =)



So anywho...thanks again everyone! It means a ton...and you're cheaper than a shrink! LOL!

Glad all went well..

Great shots of today. They will look FABulous in her scrapbook.

Life has a way of moving on whether we are ready or not - big or little, it is just a matter of perspective...

what a fun looking hallway for the kids! I fear the day when mine are off to school- my oldest begins pre-k this year and that will be hard enough.

Brenda-
Love these photographs...just love them!!

My sister is going thru the same thing today too..She was a mess this morning when she dropped Makenzie off! She said when they got in the classroom Drew hugged her and off he went...and then she said she lost it! :)

I can only imagine what it is going to be like, I will be turning to you for advice next year!! :) :) But in the mean time enjoy the quiet time!! :)

Thank you so much everyone for the awesome support! I'm doing fine...the first day was a bit hard but picking her up and her talking non-stop about school made it all better. =) I'm so surprised she hasn't come home and just crashed...she's like the energizer bunny...she keeps going and going and going.... =)
Hugs,
Bren

Kellie,
I didn't think it would be this emotional for me but it was. Now we are in week 2 and I'm fine...it's kinda nice with the time that I have. =)
