Kindergarten and “Big Girl” pre-school

I guess it’s official now – my girls are “big girls.”

Meg and I woke Brenna up this morning and she turned over with a giant smile on her face, “Is it time for school?!” she asked excitedly. “Almost honey, let’s get up and have breakfast,” we laughed.

Brenna has been waiting for this day for weeks and she’s so excited. Meg put her in a special dress, picked for this day and she was ready in the morning before I’d even gotten in the shower.

Parker was a little harder to convince to get up (as is nearly always the case), but once she got going, she was super sweet. She’s already started back, so she was a little less excited about her school day, but she too was very happy for Brenna’s big day.

We dropped Parks off with little trouble (although she decided she was “shy” as I was leaving and wanted to velcro herself to my legs). Ms. Priscilla pulled her off me with the strength that only teachers have, and carried her to class. There was no crying or fussing; I think Parker just wanted to put on show.

Brenna walked with us right to her room, and got down to business. She introduced herself to her classmate who was reading with the teacher, and sat down beside her ready to “read” along. I had to get her back up to take a few photos and get some extra kisses in before Meg and I went to work… and that was that. Our child started school. No tears, no fears. Just absolute pure excitement.

They both had a great days from what we can tell. Parker played with a dragon and went outside and “didn’t get in trouble OR sent to time out!” Brenna read books and played with new kids and seems to be very happy. Oh, and her best friend/boyfriend Daniel is in her class, so that certainly makes things an easier transition.
