Going to Kindergarten

Here she is! A brand new kindergartner! She is ready for the 1st day!

But before I show you more pics from this morning we better back up a little...

Friday was meet and greet at Nora's new school!

Nora is pouting because she wants to ride the bus the 1st day. That is so like Nora.

Coloring her 1st picture in kindergarten!
Her classroom is so cute! Only 16 kids in her class! And her teacher's room theme is Bees!

Later that day Nora and I made a "Back To School" cake!


Ok...back to this morning...the 1st day of school...

Nora and her backpack outside

Riding to school in the car not the bus yet!

Walking in with daddy

When we walked into the school the smell about knocked me down! It immediately brought tears into my eyes. How does school smell the same way from when I went to elementary? Crazy! It was so familiar. It was really such a nice feeling dropping her off this morning. There was so much life with in the halls. Lots of staff out ready to assist you in the halls. Lots of smiling faces throughout the halls. I am excited about her school because it feels like home not an institution. It was nice to see teachers stopping to talk to families that have multiple kids and who have obviously been at the school for a while. I just felt good about it.

Nora inside her classroom. Her teacher is giving her instructions about her backpack and lunch. Nora was excited! She is totally ready! After she put her stuff up she ran to the door and said "my teacher said to come and give you a kiss." It was so cute! We kissed her and said goodbye. Jason and I drove back home and then he left for work. I came in turned on the tv and "Mickey Mouse Club House" was on. I had to turn it quick before I started to cry. I turned to Fox News!

I am sure she is having fun! I can't wait to hear and see what she did today! It's hard to believe that Nora is one of those big kids in the kindergarten hall! Hold on here we go...

I will post some video later today!
