Kenzie's first day of school

Kenzie had her first day of Kindergarten on Wednesday. Wow... my baby is growing up.

I took pictures and asked a couple of the mommies there to take our pictures together. She was just precious. As she was waiting in line with the other kids for the bus, I began to tear up... OH for crying out loud! It's just Kindergarten! What's going to happen when she's going off to college!

Looking a bit nervous...

A little more relaxed...

Then in the evening, we began a new year of dance and gymnastics. She talks like she really doesn't want to do it, but then when she's there, she has the biggest grin on her face and looks like she really enjoys it. I took pics of her in her suit just prior to her starting class.

Is there an exorcist in the house?

This morning when I was walking her to the bus, she asked, "Are you going to cry again today?" I assured her I wouldn't. I kept my word. I guess it embarrassed her .

Kenzie looked absolutely adorable on her first day!
Bracelets and all!!

I love the picture of the 2 of you.
It does look like you could cry at the drop of a hat. I understand.
You have a brave smile on Momma.
Good Job!

She is such a cutie! I love the comment, "are you going to cry again." Oh the things are children will say. Thanks for sharing.

Don't be embarassed about crying. My sister used to hide behind bushes, watching if her oldest daughter (aged 5) had somebody to play with in her first year at a new school. My niece was the only Chinese kid there; and day after day, she had no company in the playground; just standing in a puddle, stamping her litte feet; or brushing off dust from leaves. My sister went straight to the teacher armed with her "evidence." The teacher then gave a big lecture to the other kids on how to welcome new uns and show friendship. LOL!!! Kenzie looks fine with her cool outfit.
