First Day of Kindergarten – Part One

Oh my goodness, we have a kindergartener! We are so excited about this next year and all the changes and challenges and general fun stuff coming for our family. We’re doing an alternate school plan, for lack of a better description, and it is such a great fit for our family. It’s a classical education done in the university style which means Marion goes to school two days and then we homeschool two days a week. The teacher sends out the lesson plan for us to follow at home which means I have less work to do (woohoo!) than traditional homeschooling and ensures that all the students are learning the same materials. Basically, we think it’s the best of both worlds! Enough pontification, on to the pictures!

We made a checklist of everything that needs to go into her backpack – Kinder is serious business!

What a big girl she has become.

Because when I think about sending her off to school, my mind still sees this little thing and thinks there is no way she’s big enough for kindergarten.

Walking out of morning assembly. I may or may not have been a teary mess at this point.

Eliza doesn’t start preschool until next week, so we went to Starbucks for a treat. Banana bread and apple juice for her

Cheeks and chins for me!

And she made it through her first day!

I adore this picture. They may not admit it, but they did miss each other 🙂

When I asked her how her day went, she said, “Mama, it was a great day! We had recess twice but we did a lot of work too.” Sounds like the year is off to a fantastic start!
