First day at school…

Today began a new and big chapter in Gwennie’s life. She started Kindergarten.
I was quite sure that I wouldn’t get upset as she has been in preschool since the age of two and a half.
But I was wrong!

I think G could sense I was feeling a bit emotional first thing this morning as she kept holding my hand and giving me big random hugs.
So cute!

Ready for school!

I had to fight the tears back all the way to school (I didn’t want to upset her as she was so excited!).
She hopped out of the car as I blubbed, “I love you! Have a good day!” and she didn’t even look back.
Cue me driving off with tears streaming down my face!

I couldn’t wait to pick her up again.
Her teacher came up to me and said that she had had a wonderful day and that she was such a happy little girl.
That made me feel better!

G was full of beans and managed to tell me all about her day before crashing out in the car!

Sooooooo tired!

Mission accomplished!

She also started back at ballet yesterday. She has gone up to the next level and was very proud to wear her new uniform… a black leotard!!!
So grown up!

Tiny dancer!

Our little girl is growing up!


On the Other Side of the Door
I can be a different me,
As smart and as brave and as funny or strong
As a person could want to be.
There’s nothing too hard for me to do,
There’s no place I can’t explore
Because everything can happen
On the other side of the door.

On the other side of the door
I don’t have to go alone.
If you come, too, we can sail tall ships
And fly where the wind has flown.
And wherever we go, it is almost sure
We’ll find what we’re looking for
Because everything can happen
On the other side of the door.

  1. I can’t believe she is already in kindergarten. The time passes way too quickly. I hope she has a fabulous year. I’m so anxious for Reagan to start dance classes. She has to wait until December before she’ll be of age for the program here.

  2. Dear Sarah
