Kindergarten Eve

Hallie is all geared up and ready for her first day of kindergarten! She is sooooo excited to get to ride the school bus :) {Mom's a bit nervous, but I know she will do great and make lots of friends!} The teacher today at open house told us there are 11 girls and 4 boys!! Yipeeee! This is much better than the 2 girls and 10 boys she had last year in preschool! I will have lots of pictures to post tomorrow, in the meantime, I will leave you with this cute poem her teacher handed out today.

"Tell me, what did you do today?"

When children come home
at the end of the day,
the question they're asked
as they scurry to play
is, "Tell me, what did you do today?"
Perhaps "nothing" means that I planted a bean
or counted to 10 with Mrs. Green.
Maybe I painted a picture of red or blue,
or heard a story about a mouse that flew.
Maybe I watched a frog jump today
or went outside on the swings to play.
Maybe today was the very first time
that my scissors followed a very straight line.
Maybe I led a song from beginning to end
or played with a special brand-new friend.
When you're only five and your heart has wings,
"Nothing" can mean many things.

Good luck at your first day of kindergarten, Lovie, we'll be waiting for the bus to pull back up!

I am sure Hallie will do fine, and yes it is harder on Mom. I cried the entire walk home after dropping Sarah off for her first day. Have a good day
