First Day of School

First Day of School 2007

First Day of School 2008

Today was Curly Girl's first day of school. She's been so excited that school was starting but then yesterday I noticed that she seemed anxious and out of sorts. When she was going to bed last night she kept asking me to sleep with her and telling me that she wasn't tired. I think that she was just so nervous about going back.

he sometimes gets overwhelmed when she's in a new situation or around a lot of people that she doesn't know well. It's funny though because when she's at dance class she walks in like she owns the place.

We sat together and colored for a bit until she loosened up a little bit. She did a little singing and dancing with her classmates.

We did a craft together and had a snack.
Then she played a bit with some of the other kids.
I know that when she goes back on Wednesday it'll be hard for her when I leave. It'll get easier for her though once she gets used to it.

Next year, kindergarten!

Awwwww what great photos to capture such a wonderful memory. That's great you got to spend so much time with her there. My friend's teacher didn't allow the parents to stay at all. Meanwhile, the other teachers of the same grade did. She was so sad!

Your daughter is precious!

ahh fun!!! I love to see how much she has grown in the year! Great idea on taking it in front of a sign as a measurement :) Looks like a fun day. I have a curly girl too :)
