My daughter’s1st day of school…Kindergarten!!

So today was my daughter’s first day of Kindergarten, holy cow, when did this happen?! I was teary eyed all morning long, but when we got to school, there was so much commotion it kept my mind busy, so yay!

How cute is she at her little blue table?

It was so hard to walk away and leave here there, but I knew I HAD to do it. Besides she wanted to stay, only Mommy was the weak one:)

Anyway, we had a great morning, she was so excited. I kept telling her that we needed to have “positive thoughts” about school and then it would go well. She said “Mommy, I want to tell Heavenly Father (what we call the divine power) that I am grateful for starting school.” How awesome are kids?!! Continue reading
