Kindergarten. A mystery all it’s own.
I’m sure you’re expecting the play by play for Taylors first full day of Kindergarten.
I got nothin’.
Well, pretty much nothing. She’s all tight lipped about school for the most part. It’s all a secret evidently, which, I was semi-prepared for. They say not to drill them for info, so we drove home pretty much in silence aside from Avery giving the details of our day, while I bit my lip to keep my mouth shut. How do you not ask questions?? I was excited. I wanted to know!
It was a great day. No tears. I was thrilled to see I wasn’t the only mom dropping her kid off who wasn’t in a hurry to leave, although I did rather quickly, just as I had rehearsed in my mind. Graceful exit, don’t look back a second time. It was funny really, all this emotional build up and mental ‘here’s how it’s gonna go’ and it doesn’t even take 2 minutes and you’re outta there. I didn’t get but one picture – can you believe it!? Me either. I was nervous I guess.
The clock seemed to tick a lot slower than usual today. I was excited to go pick her up. When she saw us drive in, she was waving at us before we even got out of the car. When her teacher brought her over, she sprinted toward me. It was the best and she threw her little arms around me as tight as she could. I couldn’t have had a sweeter greeting. I missed her. Avery missed her. Oh my, did Avery ever miss her!
I was so glad Brian took the day off to be with me & Avery. He had been gone for a long weekend back near our old home in Florida with a bunch of friends, so it was good to relax a bit and do a few things around the house together. Here are some pics from our cupcake snack after school. Hopefully tomorrow she’ll volunteer a few more details about life in Kindergarten. I can’t wait!
