First Day Adventures!!!!

Well, today was Zoe's big adventure - 1st Day of Kindergarten. I kissed her bye this morning & then cried myself to work! Paul woke Zoe up a while later & in no time she was dressed, had her hair in a pony tail, ate breakfast, washed her face, brushed her teeth, & was ready to go. Since I couldn't be there Paul was given strict orders to take pictures.

In our driveway preparing to leave for Kindergarten!

Standing next to the school's sign.

Hugging on her friend Chloe.

Sitting in the bleachers for the first time with some friends.

For some reason, Zoe looks to be the only happy one!

They called her class to go to their room.

Walking down the hall for the first time as a Kindergartner!

Taking her seat for the first time. (as Mrs. Green consoles a little boy)

She is ready to get the day started.

Today was only a half day attendance. She says she had a great time & stayed on orange which means superior behavior for the day. Zoe told us that Mrs. Green read a book about a Gingerbread Man & then the class had to figure out clues & find him because he actually jumped out of the book & ran away. She was so excited telling us about it because each student made his/her own gingerbread man to bring home. Here's hers:

Cute, huh?

Zoe was also thrilled because she received this from Mrs. Green today:

Overall, I would say it was a great day. She loved her first day & is eager for tomorrow. So eager in fact, she had no trouble falling asleep. But not before telling her dad to wake her up in the morning by saying - "Surprise. It's your second day of kindergarten!"

(That's my girl. Already counting the days before summer break! Actually, if you must know, there are only 179 more school days before summer. For some reason, we teachers keep track of that!!!!

(Don't forget about my big giveaway in honor of back-to-school.)

I'm so glad she had a good day. Today was first for us and I am still much like you were yesterday. Ready to leave and go get them!

I'm so proud of your husband...he did awesome with pictures!

Oh... oh... the Tongginator starts kindergarten next week and I'M NOT READY. Seeing little Zoe go through her day with a smile on her face helped me a bit though. Thank you.
