There are few subject lines that scare me more, than the word Yikes.  The moment you read that first line, so many things run through your head.  But nothing could be even more frightening, then the second line saying there is lice in Kindergarten. Yes, welcome to week four, we now have lice to worry about.  Because just getting to school on time, making sure snacks are packed and not forgetting library is not enough in the first month.

Get Into The Groove

We are getting into the groove with 5 day-a-week school.  Some days are better than others and some days, I think our school system is crazy to think that 5 year-olds can do full day kindergarten 5-days in a row.  But everyday we are learning and growing.

We Made It Through The First "Almost" Full Week Of Kindergarten

We made it through the first "almost" full week of school.  I'm exhausted.  Lilly is energized.  I am thinking it should be Christmas vacation any day now, or even better Summer vacation, but that is just me.  Lilly has her bus habits down, her school folder under control, she has a new friend everyday and she even has her first library book from school.  It is a great change of pace for her.  Mrs. Wade posts a few pictures now and then, to give us a peak in the classroom, it is a fun feature to see what they are up-to.

Lillian Grace: First Day of Kindergarten


It is so hard to believe that this morning, Lilly jumped on the bus and headed to Kindergarten.  I feel like she should still be 4ish months old and taking her to her first day at Childtime.  But seeing her jump off the bus and run to me telling me how much fun she had, I was able to embrace the season of change.  I think the hardest thing for me, will be the quiet house on our usually Mommy and Lilly days.  I forgot how much time there is in a day, when it is not scheduled around a little one.
