Now Adyson is NOT a morning person, and of course, she has morning Kindergarten. So we've been really trying to pull her out of bed and get her ready the last few weeks so she can be prepared. Today though, instead of her whining about how tired she was, she just popped out of bed, got dressed, ate breakfast, and wanted to go.
She was excited. And so nervous.
Here's last years back to school picture:
And this years:
She wouldn't admit to the nervous part, but the small hives on her stomach and neck clued me in.
As we were driving to school she told me that she "didn't need me to walk her in" and she "knows exactly where she needs to go".
Um, no. I walked her in. (I mean come on, let me have my mommy moment)!
I think it was a successful day. No tears were shed (on her part at least), and she talked non stop about it for most of the day.
We are so proud of Adyson, and so excited to see all the things she will learn this year. This is one timid, smart, funny, shy, lovable, and oh so special kid. Those of you who have read the blog for a long time, or who know Adyson, know that a few years ago she wouldn't even go to the neighbors house because she was too shy and scared. Now look at her, a Kindergartner! And a brave one at that!
And don't you think she is just beautiful?
