First Day of School!

We have been blessed with the fact that Avery is going to be attending K4 where we attend church. She is so excited that she gets to spend two days of the week feeling like a big girl. Her only problem was that she wanted to ride the bus to school! I had to tell her that there wasn't a bus to take her to school and that I would have to suffice.

The part I was not excited about this morning was having to wake both kids up! That is never fun to do. When they are sleeping...let them sleep!

The minute Avery's eyes were open, she remembered what a special day it was and ran to get her lunchbox then stood by the door....with no clothes on. Then she realized she needed to put the clothes on she had so carefully picked out the night before.

She was in such a hurry to get to school, she wanted to bipass the whole picture taking thing, but I insisted. The results are as follows. You can see the progression from not too thrilled to terribly excited once we got to her classroom.

Braden and I got to spend some quality time with each other. We aren't used to that, and I think it will be good for us.

Once we picked Avery up, she filled us in on how she wrote the letter A over and over and over and over. Then she wrote a lower case a over and over and over and over. She also mentioned that her teacher told them about snakes. Then she got to be the leader when they went to the playground. She also said she sat by a new friend named Adalyn, not her young friend Adalyn, but a much bigger one.

She also shared some thoughts that she had told her teacher. Kids really have no filters, but I love it. I'm sure her teacher will think our family is crazy by the end of it all. Oh well; we are so there!

I love the first "not thrilled" picture! So cute! She looks adorable with her pink soccer ball lunchbox. I never did get down to her class to see her today, but will try to soon. I love just watching the kids in their classes and how they interact with one another.

How fun! Love that first picture, that is just too funny! I'm glad that you and Braden are getting to have some one on one time.

the funny thing is we never talked about snakes that I know of and there is no Adalyn is her class! LOL!! I think her friend's name is Josie :) It is so funny how kids live in their own world :) I wish us adults could do that sometimes!!Avery is so sweet and very respectful to others and that is the best kind to have in a class of 17 4 year olds!
