Is she in Kindergarten already?

I have heard that question more times than I can count this summer and I am a little sad to say, "Yes, she is." My baby girl started Kindergarten yesterday and I don't know who was more nervous, Arden or me. It was my first day, too. I am always so wound up the night before the first day; I can't sleep which isn't good because I have to have sleep. I always tell my class that I am just as nervous as they are. Teachers are like performers, and somedays we get a standing ovation and others, a few tomatoes thrown our way. If you are a Muppets fan, I need not explain that one! Mike went with us and stayed with Arden for a little bit longer than I got to because I had to go to my class and welcome them for their first day. It was a great day. She got to be with friends from Covenant and a few new ones. She doesn't go back until next week because of phasing but I can't wait until she is there full time. It is so nice to have her at school with me; she can keep me straight!

Showing off her new lunchbox and, of course, the HSM backpack!

I'm right there with ya girl! It's so hard to think they are starting Kindergarten! You realize how time flies when you have your own children. I've learned to cherish every minute of it!

Alison,
I can not believe Arden is ready for Kindergarten! She looked beautiful for her first day at school. Anslee loved her bag.
