Yikes! Both my kids are in school, full time! Maisy has been a champ so far with Kindergarten. She is liking the whole big girl responsibility thing. (Getting up to an alarm clock, making her bed, getting dressed, packing her backpack.)

"When I grow up, I want to be a professional cheerleader."
Luckily there were no tears at drop off (me included!) Both girls were comfortable & confident. They walked right into their classes.
Truth be told, I was a basket case the night before. I cried and ended up waking up at 4am, unable to get back to sleep. I went on a run and then got the girls ready for school. I was only able to hold it together that morning because I hosted the "Yahoo Breakfast" for the PTA. Serving food, taking photos, meeting new parents-- it all kept me busy and smiling. (Do you like my emoji signs? I speak fluent emoji :) )
And before I knew it- the time had come to pick up Maisy! (Kinder gets our early the first 3 days of school.) We met some other Kinder friends and had lunch out. It was a great celebration of the first day. They were all really happy and Maisy loves her class.
I think it's going to be a good year.
