I suppose- it is almost November, which means I should get a post done about the first day of kindergarten! Hard to believe my firstborn, my baby, started kindergarten this year. Everyone tells you how the years fly by and I definitely believe it.
She was super excited for her first day of kindergarten- nervous but excited. She even fist pumped on the way to school, saying "I am going to school at Cedar Heights!"
Her good buddy Austin started his first day of kindergarten also! They are in classrooms next door to each other. Can you tell he was all business on his first day?
This sweet little line of kids is the usual routine for Addelyn's mornings. I drop her off and pick her up each day. Every morning, the kids can play on the playground first and line up when the whistle blows. I stick around each day to watch her go in (this little miss doesn't want me to leave til she is completely in the door- which I am fine with, I'll take these days while I can!)
Notice her lunch bag. She is super excited about bringing cold lunch every day. I started out being the one to push cold lunch. Overall, I'd rather pack her lunch because it is nice to know what she is eating and knowing she is getting some healthy food in her belly. Mom Confessional- there are some crazy mornings where I recently have found myself trying to get her talked into how good "Bosco sticks" sound (so I can skip lunch making!) (Note: Bosco sticks= not good.) She is set on cold lunch!
Addelyn has a wonderful teacher, Mrs. Beisner. She is super sweet and Addelyn really likes her. We are thankful for a great teacher to start off these school years. We are keeping Addelyn home on Wednesdays- it is a short day anyway- and this has been a great transition for her (and our family!) I don't necessarily home school on that day- it is really a day off for Addelyn. Most Wednesdays though she does do a little school work or an afternoon activity but in the big picture, I give her a free play day- her and Jace usually enjoy their time together- fighting, wrestling, playing babies, legos, etc. They really miss each other during the week!
After school, our good friend Aquayla came to visit after her big first day at CF High! We love Aquayla!
Last, I had to take a picture of her first ever library book checked out from the school library. This just makes me smile- okay, it makes me giggle. Wrestling! Gotta love it. Ohhh kindergarten. What a year so far!
