The big day is almost here! We have packed her backpack, laid out clothes and shoes and our big girl is sleeping. We have spent the summer sleeping in (as much as we can with triplet boys who like to think they are roosters) and doing whatever we wanted. It will all change tomorrow when we have to somehow remember how to have a routine! I think we'll be good though. Lilly seems excited and says she is just a little bit nervous.
The first day of school was actually today, but Kindergarten does a staggered start. (Thankfully!). Lilly will go tomorrow with just a few of the kids in her class and then return Thursday with her whole class. I love that plan. This afternoon, after the neighborhood kids came home from school, we went outside and talked with them about their day. This definitely helped Lilly get really excited about her first day!
And how am I doing? I have been okay! I really am excited for this next stage and seeing what kind of student she will be. We have been reading a lot of books recently about school and it's been fun explaining to her what she is getting ready to experience.
And then I was getting a car that Currin had dropped behind our bed and found some "secret messages" that Lilly had hidden under our bed a few weeks ago that I had totally forgotten about. (I knew she had put something under our bed but had forgotten to look for them that night after she went to bed).
SOB!!!! I am going to MISS her!
The boys all had secret messages too. They all went to sleep with their notes in their beds (Lilly's request). I'll have to take a picture later. They all said "WOOOOWWW" when they opened their card. What a special sister.
These guys (Currin and Lee) and Austin are going to miss her TONS during the day.
