Today is Megan’s first day of Kindergarten!
For good measure, here is a photo of her when she started preschool last year at this time, and a photo from this morning.
A lot has changed over the past year. In these photos alone we acknowledge a newly painted fence, and a better quality camera, but the biggest change is the subject of the photo. My how she’s grown!
This morning we started off the day with Megan’s favorite breakfast, cinnamon rolls.
“Don’t worry Jane, I’ll be back before you even notice I’m gone.”
After breakfast, Adam gave Megan a back to school blessing. Megan seemed to grasp the weight of it, and sat very still with her arms folded and her eyes shut tight. It was a wonderful way to start of her school year.
And then we were off…
“Come on, mother!” (*side note, she calls me “mother” now because of the movie “Tangled”. At least she doesn’t call me “Mother Gothel.”)
Daddy and Jane joined us for the first day as well.
Megan made herself right at home. Kindergarten and Megan are going to get along beautifully!
They encourage the parents to stick around for ten minutes each morning to read to their child.
Other days, I might hope the three hours go by slower, but today I am so anxious to pick her up and hear all about her first day. I am sure she will have a great time!
I’m loving this stage of life, and I love watching Megan grow into a sweet young lady, but tell me…
how did we go from here:
