Today I took my sweet little girl to her first day of Kindergarten, OMG!!! Maisie has been so excited and this morning was no exception. She couldn't wait to see her teacher Miss Nancy, her classmates and she was also looking forward to seeing her gymnastics friend Kaity. Kaity is in first grade but Kindergarten, first & second graders have a combined gym class which meets first thing Monday & Wednesday mornings and Maisie is looking forward to it so that she can be with Kaity and Kaity's Mom Joyce, who's the phys. ed. instructor.
When I dropped Maisie off this morning I carried in all the required school supplies and Maisie found the desk with her name on it and sat down ready to start her day. I asked her for a snug & a hug and she jumped into my arms, gave me a big hug & kiss, told me that Mummy always comes back and then basically pushed me away. I put her down and she sat right down at her desk waiting for Miss Nancy to give her some paper & crayons. With a few tears in my eyes I left my little girl at big girl school!!
Maisie looked so tiny compared to all the "big" kids in her class. A few of the children are just on the brink of turning five, most are already five and there's at least one girl who will turn six before Maisie even turns four in October. Maisie does so well with older children and I know that she's going to thrive this year.
I've added Maisie's pictures from her first days at Wee School back in 2008 & 2007. I can't get over how much my little baby has grown, look how tall she's become!! I'm so excited for Maisie and just can't wait to pick her up this afternoon and hear all about her first day.
Here's Maisie with her friend Kaity, ready to start their first day of school!
