Abby's First Day of Kindergarten
The day FINALLY arrived! She has been looking forward to this day for a year or more and the day finally arrived! Her teacher called her the day before school started and welcomed her to her class. Abby was almost starstruck and almost at a loss for words. All she could say was, "I'm so excited for school!" The next morning, our routine went smoothly- just like we planned it- then Paul walked her and the babies all the way to her classroom. When she came home, she couldn't wait to tell us everything. She told us about the book her teacher read about Splat the Cat and about singing songs. She told me, "I'm just trying to tell you the truth about everything that really happened at school" and she struggled to remember EVERY LITTLE DETAIL. She brought home a little welcome to school picture she had colored and on the back she had written, "1+1=2 2+2=4 4+4=8. They hadn't actually learned that, she just finished coloring early and wanted to "practice maths". She has two little friends from church in her same class (not that Abby has a hard time making friends... I think it's one of the things I admire about her the most) which is nice for us moms. She asked me, "Will I go to school until I'm a grown-up?" and I said, "Yes." She got so happy! That just can't last can it? I hope it does. I think I learn something new from her everyday.
