First Day of Kindergarten
Yesterday was Mikaylas first day of kindergarten. Oh, my little girl is growing up too fast. Last spring we made the decision to keep her at her at the private Christian pre-school - kindergarten that she was attending - it just seemed the thing to do at the time. Ive looked back at that decision with such relief and happiness since then, I cant even tell you.
Doesnt her teacher just look like a kindergarten teacher...... Her name is Mrs. Graham and she is very sweet. Mikayla had an exceptional first day and is most excited that she gets to go every day instead of every other day. (Not on Friday, though - that will be our special days).
On a different note, I have to praise my son for being my HERO today. I awoke (on my own) to see my alarm clock showing 739. This is bad, very bad as that is about 3 minutes before we need to be in the car driving to Braydens school. Fortunately, the clock was about 5 minutes fast - so we had maybe 8 minutes to get ready. YIKES!
So, I ran into the kitchen yelling Braydens name, only to find him FULLY DRESSED (including his shoes and socks which never happens), and pouring milk into the bowl of cereal he prepared on his own. I couldnt get over how amazingly proud I was of him! We left the house and dropped him off totally on time, and I thought to myself, maybe, just maybe, we are doing somethihng right with that kid...........
