First day of kindergarten

We made it!!!! Kaylee did great and I was....well....ok so I cried all the way to work. She woke up this morning and was ready to go. At ten after 7:00 she was wondering why we still haven't left yet, I had to remind her that she didn't have to be a school until ten til 8:00. So we get there and she would not let me carry anything and she walked about 10 feet in front of me like she was walking in a marathon, we get to the front door and I ask her to turn around and let me get a picture and I get"Momma, come on!!!" We get to her class unload the backpack and have to sharpen a pencil with the cool pencil sharpener hanging on the wall, to which this afternoon when I saw her she told me that the pencil that we sharpened didn't work. I still haven't figured out what didn't work about a #2 pencil but you know.... what do I know! I stayed until the annoucements where completed and until after the pledge of allegiance and moment of silence. And yes, they still do the pledge of allegiance...THANK GOD! Mom picked her up at noon and I went over and had lunch with them. She told us that they got to go on a tour of the school, they went to the Principal's office, "He has a camera on his computer and he can see everywhere in the WHOLE school!", then they went to the cafeteria and the gym and then to the "book center". I asked her the book center? she said, "Yeah they have tons of books in there and some teachers are there too" I said do you mean the library? She said, "YEAH, the library and there was a little girl that I had to help keep in line, I don't think she had ever walked in a line before." She also ate lunch in the cafeteria today and got to see a lot of her friends in there and got to drink "chocolate milk". At the end of the day she received her blue penny, which means she was good and that her horse didn't get moved to the barn!!!
It is just so hard to believe that the "baby" chapter of her life is complete, it seems just like yesterday.

You are not the only one to cry. Katlin started as well and it broke my heart because my baby is growing up! We are getting so old.

She is too precious...helping that little girl staying in line was so helpful. LOL.
