Goodbye Kindergarten

It looks like Kyla's reaction to change is just about the same as her momma's. We were both in tears as she came off the bus this afternoon. I am just amazed at how much 9 months can change a child. She went to school with long hair, all her teeth and a sense of nervousness that was noticed by all. She came off the bus so longing to be with her teacher forever that she blurted out "I want to stay at my school with my friends". I can't help but feel the same way. Her teacher was fantastic, her friends were fun and my heart just wants to freeze time.

I might be biased but she is just the kind of child that any momma would be lucky to parent. She is a writer, reader, learner, smiler, friend, silly goose, leader, singer, artist, protector, and cuddler. And I am terribly proud of this girl.

Awww... this makes ME want her to stay in Kindergarten! Let's hope that 1st Grade is as much fun as K-garten. Rest assured that it will be a heck of a lot easier with a good kid on your hands. :-)

Kylee is the same way! On her last day of school I looked in the rear view mirror as I was driving her home and there were tears in her eyes as well!

Kasen, on the other hand, was dancing in his seat! Happy Summer!!

I get off the bus after my last day of Kindergarten. "Going to be the best summer ever!" 8 minutes later... Broken arm, i'm on the DL for the rest of the summer, just another kick-ball game gone wrong. The best part of the story was my Mother was too hung over to take me to the hospital right away. Broken arm, she fed me a popsicle and told me to shake it off. Still can't touch my right shoulder with my right arm. Be honest with Kaiser, tell her her life peaked when she stepped off that bus. It'll never be as good as that day.

Zack your absolutely right. Seeing you in that broken arm sling was the best.
