This year was a bit different than last year when she started kindergarten--her first year of all day school. I was a mess last year. She got on the bus and I cried that my first baby was going to be gone all day. That someone else was going to be watching her and teaching her. This time...I was kind of looking forward to her going back to school. Not because I didn't want her home...but because I needed that routine back. Granted, not having the bickering between the two oldest was also a plus but the routine worked for us. We had structure.
And Hannah loves school. She is so smart and loves to learn and I love that. I want her to love learning because I did not have a love relationship with school.
So now, here we are back into our routine. It's nice.
Hannah loves her teacher. She gets her own desk where she can put her books and her pencil case. She gets to check out books from the library whenever she wants instead of on certain days. She gets to play on the "big kid side" of the playground at recess. And she is excited about science.
I think it's going to be a great year! Nick and I are on the PTO and I hope to be involved in the classroom!
My big first grader. Sometimes I still have a hard time with my first baby beig so big!
