K is for Kate the Kindergartener

My Precious Pretty #1 started Kindergarten this past Monday. She has been anticipating this day all summer, and was really worked up about it on Monday. One thing I have noticed about PP #1 is that she has become very particular about certain things. It's like she is a selective perfectionist or some thing like that. We started & ended the week well, and I'm just going to chalk up what happened those days in between as the "adjustment". She likes her uniform. She read two of her BOB books to her teacher today. She survived & mshe realized kindergarten wasn't so bad.

Crayon wreath we made. Didn't quite hold up as well as I thought it shoulda-coulda-woulda.

Her new backpack & her special "K is for Kate the Kindergartener" goodie bag that I stuffed with pencils, pencil holders, a puppy folder & spiral, silly bands, chapstick, erasers, etc. I love shopping for school supplies, but the school that Kate goes to supplied everything she needed this year. You better believe I still had go buy some.

Waking her up for the first day. Of all the days she could have slept in throughout the summer, she chose not to rise early that day.

Ready as ever!

On our way!

On Wednesdays they go Mass, so we had to take the picture of the uniform.

Precious Pretty #2 will also be starting 3K at SMS. She will be starting a week late, because I had her registered and ready to go to another school. I don't know what happened, but something didn't feel right when I left the Meet the Teacher Nigh at the school where PP#2 was supposed to go.  I didn't feel settled or have any warm and fuzzies, and I had a lot of unanswered questions.  After a sleepless night, and lots of thoughts, prayers and reflection, I let Go and let God. He guided us to SMS and I am at peace.

I'm going to try really hard to keep up with this more often. Maybe it will be easier for me now since I have the blog app on my phone again.  We'll see.  

Happy school year!!
