I asked her to write her name on the chalkboard. Hopefully I"ll remember to do this every year so I can see how her handwriting changes.
Jon was getting the boys ready while I was taking pictures of Lilly. He opened the door and we saw the sweetest/saddest face. Currin seemed to understand what was going to happen and was not happy. He has perfected the pouty face.
We all piled in the van and Jon sat with the boys as I walked her in. I was hoping she would hold my hand one last time, but she was on the go. Her confidence amazes me and I am so thankful for that! Every teacher she walked by, Lilly said hello to. She knew exactly where to go. They let parents walk students to class the first day but have warned us that they will have to walk on their own after that. I think she'll be fine!
Here she is walking into class with one of her classmates. Lilly had written a letter to her teacher that morning during breakfast and had it in her backpack. That was the first thing she wanted to do when we entered the room was to give her teacher the note.
Lilly sat right down and was ready to work. I was so happy that she was so ready for this day. Neither of us cried and I felt so comfortable leaving her there.
One last look before leaving.
This girl cracks me up! Watch out world, she's on her way!
My four little lovies. The boys sure did miss their big sis. When I got back in the van after walking Lilly in, Lee asked for "YeeYee". All day long they would walk into her room and say "Yee Yee bye bye". I"m not sure they knew what to do with out their ring leader/mother hen.

It has been fun listening to what a day in kindergarten is like. She had today off (yay!) but can not wait to go back to school tomorrow. I can only hope this excitement continues all year long.
