As much as I tried to slow it down, the day came.   Abi has officially started Kindergarten.  She has been very excited to get started, and excited to see her new classroom.  She has shown us NO fear of this day, which as a parent I should be very happy about that, right?! Well, it has made it a little easier. I say a little-  I'm the one having the hard time (no surprise- huh?!)  The whole bus thing bothers me-  but from talking to other moms I'm not alone.  And this BUS thing is what she is so excited for, too! There comes a time when we can no longer hold their hands...and this is one of those times.
A few shots of her first morning loading the bus....

                                And now as I type this its Day 4 and I get a little bit each day from her about her new Kindergarten days. This is what I have learned so far:  She likes her teacher and her PE teacher, she pledges the flag each morning, she gets to go to the bathroom by herself ( OH AND the lights come on all by them self when you walk into the bathrooms!!! :),  she has to raise her hand to talk, she sits by a nice girl named Ava. 

I'm very excited now that I have the first day jitters over, and very excited about the learning and growing Abi is going to do over this school year.  

I can't leave Avri out! She too is excited for her Big sister and the new things going on in her life.  She had to see her sissy get on the school bus on the second day....and she talks about when SHE will be starting Kindergarten....  ( not for a long time if Mommy can help it!! :)

Avri has graduated to a bigger age room at Daycare and started a few days ago.   She is doing wonderful with the exception she misses her old teachers-  they were great!
