First day of First grade!
Today Madison started 1st grade! It was also her first day at her "new" school. She went to a different school for Kindergarten, so she had a lot of changes today. (She now goes to a year round school). She goes for 9 weeks and then is off 3 weeks. She goes to school from 9-4. Which is the same time the boys go to their daycare/preschool! How perfect is that. So I drop her off then drop the boys off! SO COOL!
She said she had a great day and made 2 friends and can not wait to go back tomorrow to make more friends! She was not afraid or nervous, I was a little for her. She told me on the way to school that I do not need to get out of the care and walk her to the school- she could do it all by herself! She even wanted to walk to school by herself, um no not until maybe second grade!!!! Good thing I did walk her to the door, there were at least 100 first graders and 100 second graders along with all the parents. Craziness. We got in her line and kissed me good bye and did not look back, she did the same thing in Kindergarten. I am glad she likes school and is not afraid of new experiences. SO after all these months of me being so excited for her to be in school all day I found myself swallowing a lump in my throat and holding back the tears. Why? I though you only did that in Kindergarten and maybe high school. It just seems like it is going to fast, and yet you have those days where you just want them to GROW UP! So that has been my day. I have no kids at home with me 5 days a week from 9-4. CRAZY.
