Kindergarten???!?!?!?!!?!

Our oldest C started Kindergarten this week. I feel like I've been preparing for it for about a year, but it still came so fast! She is in a dual language program in our district which adds fuel to the fire for me because I'm so nervous for her! She has no idea that it's not normal though so nothing has phased her yet!

Dropping her off Monday was bittersweet, and I think we handled it better than I expected! She's so big and after only five days seems to have things figured out?! She knows where to go in the mornings and they've given her back to me every afternoon.....so.....I guess we're ok?

This first week flew by as well and I know the school year will too. It's going to be such a joy to watch her grow in her academics and see how far she's come at the end of the year.

Now for the thing no one tells you about when you're sending your first off for kindergarten....
You have a SCHEDULE now?! Like, no planning impromptu trips to visit family? No random ice cream dates for lunch? No spontaneous play dates?! The ringing of the school bell has me in a headlock! But I'm so excited to see her at the end of the day and hear all about her new class and friends!
