It's kindergarten time!
My sweet little Violet went off to kindergarten this week. I cried, she didn't. I suppose that's better than the other way around. Adam went with us to see her off to her first day of school. (You're a good Daddy, Adam.) Her first week is going well, thank goodness. She was ready. She also seems to have a great teacher.
Poor Piper misses her big sister already.
This is me, back in....*cough*. Mrs. Muckleroy (far left) was my kindergarten teacher in Comfort, Texas. Mrs. Castro (far right) was her assistant. I'm in the top row in the middle in a red shirt. This wasn't my first day, but it was my Easter party. I think I was verklempt about my Ruffles or bunny hat or something.
I was so excited about kindergarten. I couldn't wait to go! I wanted to ride the bus, too. It just seemed like what big kids did.
She wanted a BIG backpack.
We got up early for a family breakfast. Violet requested sunny side up eggs, cinnamon toast, and fresh blueberries.
See her bow? I made it out of violets, because....well, her name is Violet. I thought it might help people remember her name on the first day.
I let Violet help me pick her first day of school lunch-pickles wrapped in turkey, strawberries, and cherry tomatoes. As a special treat, the night before school started, we made Rice Crispy bars. I let Violet put as many sprinkles and chocolate chips on top as she wanted. After her first day, I was shocked to hear her say, "Mama, those were too sugary." Yay-our healthy food habits are paying off!
(Piper calls Violet "yah-yit".)
"Don't worry. I'll come back."
I'm so glad these two get along. I love you, little girls of mine!
