It's so quiet in here...

Because my Megan's now in Kindergarten. She's 5 1/2 and she's ready for action! We got up extra early this morning and took her to school. Here she is posing with her new backpack. Bryan had to head out early back to our hometown because his oldest aunt passed away and he was asked to be a pallbearer.
So, it's kind of a bittersweet day all around. Of course, Megan wasn't the least bit nervous or upset about going. All the kids piled into the gym and they called each class out one room at a time. She went right to her room, put her backpack in her closet, and went straight to her desk to color a picture. She's sitting by some good buddies from preschool, so I'm glad about that, but hope she doesn't get in trouble talking too much. I'm afraid that will be her vice. Anyway, Zoe and I attended the so-called "Boo-Hoo" breakfast in the cafeteria so we could meet the principal and ask any questions we had. After that, just some minor paperwork, and now she's on her own. It's hard to let go, but I haven't cried at all! I almost teared up when I had to leave her room, but of course she wasn't upset at all, so that made it easier I guess. I almost wish she'd miss me just a little though...

Sorry I'm so far behind on your blog. I'm behind everywhere!

When Maddie went to Kindergarten last year, I always thought I would cry. But I didn't. She was thrilled to go. I was a little afraid about that with her personality sometimes. Around here, the first day of school is a huge event. Most parents walk the kids into the school yard. Help the kids find their new teachers and room lines. But when Maddie's class went into the school and the door shut, all us parents just stood around staring at each other. "So now what do we do?" It was pretty funny. She had a great year and is counting down days until 1st grade starts!

It's been a big transition. She's been a tired puppy this week (her first full week). I hope we'll adjust better soon.
