Yesterday was Izzy's first day of Kindergarten. Here she is at the bus stop. Her bus comes at 8:10 but she was ready as soon as I got her up that morning at 7.
There is a little boy (Nolan) who lives on the next street over. He is in 1st grade and was so sweet to Izzy. First they played tag while they waited, and when the bus came he helped her get on and made sure she found a seat. I wasn't able to get a picture of Izzy getting on the bus because she was like lightening; she almost forgot to give me a kiss she was so excited. It was her first time riding a school bus and she was thrilled. Her school starts at 8:30 and gets out at 3:15 and I pick her back up at the bus stop around 4ish. I love our little walks to and from the bus stop (plus it's exercise for me! :)
Clay had the day off because Lori had her knee replacement surgery that day and he took her to the hospital EARLY in the morning. But he was there to pick Izzy up at the bus stop with me, which she loved. We decided to get her a special treat, for being such a big girl on her first day of school. We found these cute cupcakes at Giant and thought they were totally perfect. She thought they were great and dove into them right away when she got home (fun after school snack, though she won't get sweets everyday, more like grapes or carrots and the like, gotta keep her healthy.) She had a wonderful day at school and couldn't wait to get back this morning. I am so glad she enjoys learning and reading, and has a desire and thirst to learn as much as she can. That means I have done my job in instilling a love of learning for the rest of her life. I'm so proud of her and I'm happy to realize I'm actually a good mom. Because I know we all don't feel that way sometimes. :)
