Our baby girl started kindergarten today. I kind of had mixed emotions about it. It's so hard for me to believe she'll be in school for the next 13 years. Well in my family's case... more like the next 40 years! ha ha! (My parents just got their doctorates this year.) Anyway, I just hope we've prepared her well, and that she's ready to take on this great big world. I was a little teary this morning, but after seeing her just adjust so quickly to her new surroundings and make friends right away, I knew she would do great.
She's going to a charter school and it's all-day kindergarten so I kept glancing at the clock throughout the day, wondering how she was doing. When she got home, she had this huge grin on her face, and she was eager to tell us all about it. She told us how she was comforting the kids in her class who were crying. So, clearly... she'll be just fine.
I on the other hand, need a day or two to grieve. Our baby girl is growing up, and it's hard to let her go.
