ashlyn's first day of kindergarden!






Today was ashlyn's first day of kindergarden, techincally ELEMENTARY school. I asked myself as i walked thru the doors of the school what had happend to my little baby.??? She was so excited and did really well. And so did I...not a tear! It was so cute to see her standing there in line with her other class mates ...all looking slightly unsure of the current situation they were in...ashlyn just stood there quitely with her hands on the straps of her new tinkerbell backpack and looking down at the ground. It was a bittersweet moment! But I was so proud of her. And she has already made a little friend ...which was honestly the part that scared me the most because she can tend to be a little anti-social when she is put into a big group. She picked out her outfit all by herself down to the yellow earrings that matched her shrit. My little diva...I love it! But all in all we had a succesful first day of school and she WANTS to go back tomorrow!

Candace- Oh! You both survived! Ashlyn looked so cute for her first day of school. I'll bet her teacher LOVES her! I am so glad she already made a new friend. Did you go spy in on her at the end of the day? It was great talking to you. Have a great rest of the week!

Too cute! I've been waiting for these pictures! It really is bittersweet isn't it? Do you like her teacher? Emma's teacher is a gem and it makes me feel so relieved.
