Goodbye Summer, Hello Kindergarten

I HATE to say goodbye to summer. I LOVE me some summer. Seriously, summer is the best! I thought so as a kid, I thought so as a teacher, and I think so as a parent. Luckily, I live in a place where fall is gorgeous and eases into winter, so things aren't all bad. :)

Today really mark the end of summer as I sent Camille off to her first day of Kindergarten. She has been a nervous and excited about it. I think today the excited out did the nervous...which is a good way to start a school year.

Outfit laid out on the floor the night before. (Who hasn't done this!)

 Mrs. Kohlstinin's class

All the girls are excited (Yes, Em is brushing her teeth. She does a thorough job.)

Ready to head for the bus stop.
(Ignore the dead plant on the porch!)

 On the bus and no looking back. (Seriously, I called for her to look at me but she was so focused on getting on the bus.)

Here's to a good school year!

No Barb I didn't. I did almost cried the day before when we went to meet her teacher and see her classroom. Luckily I sucked it up and didn't embarrass her.
