A Milestone + Audrey Week


Today's the big day. Audrey officially started kindergarten, and it was (as expected) a bit bittersweet.

She was beyond excited -- we all were actually, as we love her new school and have already met so many great kids and parents, but the minute the bell rang, I got all misty. She was so brave and sweet and eager sitting there ready to learn.

So in honor of Audrey's first week of big girl school, I'm going to do a full week of Audrey-centric posts. Stay tuned and happy Monday!

Okay, if this made me tear up, I can't imagine what I am going to do next week when Alexander starts school.

I hope she has a fabulous time! I am looking forward to the posts.

What a big step!

I remember my first day of kindergarten. I was brave until my dad left and then I stuck my face in my cubby and cried. When I looked up, my dad was watching through the window and came and gave me a hug!

I'm nearly 25 now and remember it clear as day. What great memories you are creating for Audrey!

Noah will stay another year at his little Montessori school for Kindergarten and will start at "the big school" next Fall - for 1st grade. I think part of the reason that we made that decision was because we thought he was not ready....maybe we weren't ready..?
Look forward to reading your posts about Audrey's first week at school...
