We did it!

It was an early morning here at our house. I went in to wake up Avery, and she was already a tad awake. Here is the Pre-Kindergarten-er, in all her glory! (she is so tired and excited that she can't even spit her words out...soooo funny)

I have to admit, it was a mad dash to get everything done before we walked out the door. She did manage to have some breakfast, but I did forget her vitamins and to brush her teeth. oops

Here's my precious Avery...

Daddy's girls...keep in mind that I didn't have time to shower, so I'm a little grungy!

Pulling out of the driveway...

Does she look excited to you? Um, yeah!

Here she is in front of her cubby where she keeps her school supplies and her backpack. I really didn't want to let her go here. After daddy took this, the tears started flowing...
This is what I saw as I kissed her goodbye...she walked off to read a book.
It was very emotional for me. I knew that I would be, but it was a tad harder than I thought. I don't know if it's just because of the fact that she's not usually out of my sight unless I'm working, or if it's because of the allergies, or what. All I know, was that I kept looking the clock, waiting for 11:10 to come when we could go and get her.
We picked her up, and she was outside with her class swinging. She ran up to me, and I couldn't get enough of her. I was just squeezing her up. (The teacher probably thinks I'm a nut)
After school, we went out to lunch at Z'kota (thanks Nana and Bapa). She told us all about school, her friends, and what she did. She said "School was so fun. Remember Mom, I get to go everyday." She even said to us, "Um, tomorrow...can we get there a little early? I don't want to miss anything." How sweet... (um NO...you can't go early! I need you with me until the last second! :))
Thank you God that I have another little girl to keep me occupied during those 3 hours each day, or I don't know what I'd do with myself. I'm sure it will get easier everyday. Her excitement about it just makes us so darn happy.

So sweet! You handled yourself like a champ! I'm glad she had such an awesome day!

That was such a cute video. She was obviously excited!

I had a hard time when we sent our daughter off to 4-k last year. I cried when we dropped her off. Sounds like you did pretty good though...and I'm sure that having her so excited about it really helps.

I'm so glad she loved it so much. They take it so much better than we do. :) The food makes it so much harder too. I kept waiting for "that" phone call. I know I will be today too!

We're doing great! I keep thinking - our youngest get us all to themselves which they've never had.

Oh Jennisa, I have so many of the same feelings as you are having! Our first day is Monday and I get to stay that day so Wednesday is her full day alone! I have cried so much these last few weeks and girl I feel your emotions as well. Hard to believe our little ones are growing so quickly, just like everybody says. I'll say a prayer for you today to stay strong and have confidence that she is going to be great! Enjoyig your post!!

Jennisa,
What a blessing that she loves school so much. I cried too when my last one went off but don't worry- it does get easier!
