Kitty's first day

Kitty's first day of school came a couple of weeks after Boo started.  She was a little more reserved, but she eased into her school routine well.  Oh, how she loves library and music time!
I love this little face.

First Day of Kindergarten

After a very, very long summer, Boo's first day of kindergarten finally arrived.

She was so very excited.

So excited.

We met her teacher and saw her classroom a few days before the first day of school.  Her teacher was a brand new hire, fresh out of college.  She seemed very good, very confident.

We were ready for school in plenty of time before we had to leave for school.  Plenty of time of pictures with big smiles.

Boo requested that we listen to the soundtrack from Mama Mia as we drove to school.  So we listened to "Slipping Through My Fingers."

School bag in hand, she leaves home in the early morning
Waving goodbye, with an absent minded smile...
Sometimes I wish that I could freeze the picture 
And save it from the funny tricks of time.
Slipping through my fingers...

We walked through the halls of her giant school and found our way to her classroom.  She sat down delightedly at her desk and was on her way.  Never a second look back, she was on her way.
