Hello! Today is a hard day for me. My beautiful little girl started kindergarten this morning! Here are some pictures:
Her 1st day of school outfit! I like how she striked a pose! She told me she was excited!
The sweetheart that she is she kissed her brother goodbye!
She looks so excited as we walk from the car to the school, but once we put her jacket and bag away she looks a bit nervous!
Ariel and some friends! I will be honest with you I started to cry when the little girl in pink took Ariel's hand to walk to where all the other kids were. Her kindness to Ariel touched my heart!
And sadly when it was time for the parents to go Ariel started to cry. This is how I left her. It was so hard to leave!
This is the note I made to put in Ariel's lunch today. I hope it makes her happy and helps her and that she knows how much I love her. She goes to school twice one week and three times the other for a full day.
And so it begins. I think one of the reasons it's so hard because she did cry. Last year Chad and I noticed that she was quiet and shy at preschool. Her teacher had said she was smart and did well but was quiet. She wasn't herself! That bothers me and concerns me. Even with being a stay at home mom we were out and about a lot with her taking music and dance, play dates she has been around kids a lot. I pray that she likes school and does well and comes out of her shell at school. I miss her and can't wait to pick her up! Carter has been a sweetheart to me saying huggie and coming up to me and giving me tons of hugs!
I haven't been all that crafty this week! It's been busy and just haven't been inspired. I spent lots of time with my kids which was great. Today the fun starts in the Hero Arts Flickr group with a virtual card making party! It's for Operation Write Home and I hope to play! This should inspire me! Click here for more info! And by the way I posted the winners of my giveaways the post before this!
