Back to school...

Kiara started Kindergarten on Wednesday. Our town is still 1/2 day. I can't believe she is in Kindergarten. She is growing up way too fast! Kiara had been so excited all summer about starting Kindergarten. On the first day, I could tell she was a little nervous. She was a little more clingy than I thought she would be. Her first day was only an hour and I was there for 30 minutes in her classroom. It was a nice way to ease into it. Here are some pictures from the first day:

Here she is at her table at school.
So, today was her first full day, or half day for her. Ryan will be the one to take her to school on most days. Ryan took her and walked her into the gym where they coral all the Kindergartners in the center. He said it all went well, so that was great to hear. When I picked Kiara up, she said her day was good. One of the students even had a birthday, so they had cupcakes. So, how could your first day go bad if there are cupcakes?
While Kiara was at school, I worked out with a friend and got my shower in. I then finished a pencil brownie for Kiara. I made one last year, too, so I think it will be a tradition on the first full day of school. It is easy and cute.
While I am sad to see summer go, it will be nice to be back into a routine. I had been wishing that Kiara had full day Kindergarten, but now I am happy that it is half day. I would miss her way too much. I think she might be ready for full day, but I am not!

I'm glad she has 1/2 day too! OUr district has full day Kindergarten, and I think it's too much too soon for those little ones. She looks so sweet on her first day. And I love the pencil brownie!
