Again, I am amazed by the passage of time! Courtney started the SECOND grade today! We had fun preparing for the last week with the purchasing of the school supplies (gotta love new school supplies!) and a new lunch purse and deciding what to wear. The excitement has been mounting and we got in the bed later last night than I would have liked.
But, we all woke up a bit earlier than usual, so it was a nice, slow-paced morning. I had hoped it would go smooth! Courtney has been ready to go back to school since we got back from Disney! But as the morning progressed, I could tell she was feeling a bit nervous! It is a short, 5 minute drive to her school, which we spent trying to explain to Kirsten that only Courtney was going to school today and she would be able to go when she is 5. So, we get to the school and it is a crazy first morning with all the parents and their bags of school supplies and their cameras. So, we took pictures, kissed and hugged a dozen times, waved from the door five times and finally left.
Kirsten and I are going to go back and eat lunch with her later!
