First Day of School

Madeleine had her first day of kindergarten on Monday. She loved it! Today (her 2nd day) she wanted to bring money for lunch and now she wants to buy her lunch everyday! The first thing that she said when I picked her up yesterday was, "Mom, I have so many new friends!"

Everett is having a harder time adjusting. After we dropped Madeleine off we still had our 20 minute drive to Oak Lawn UMC. The entire way Everett inquired about Madeleine, "Madela, Madela..." I heard this a gazillion times! Then, when I picked him up, he kept saying, "Mommy, Mommy," and pointing to Madeleine's carseat. He was obviously reminding me that I had forgotten to get Madeleine.

Madeleine also started tap class on Monday. She took preballet last year and was not too interested in ballet this year. She was really interested in tap class. I'll take pictures next Monday, promise! She did great in a class of 5-7 year olds and is definitely following the teacher's instructions to practice.

I thought I would cry, but she was just so happy, so excited! My baby girl is in kindergarten!

They sold Moss Haven (the name of her school) bling at the school supply sale, so I turned all crafty and ironed it on this pink tie dye shirt from Target.

SO awesome about Madeleine's first two days at MHM. I am so proud of you for not crying but how could you shed a tear when she is beaming. The t-shirt is too cute!! Also, that is so precious about Everett missing his Big Sis!!!

Very sweet. You all should know that Vivian is quite taken w/ Madeleine. They had a blast playing together at the party. I think V fancies M a role model. She seems to be such a happy and well adjusted child. Everett is nifty too. We are so blessed to be friends of the Smiths.
