The title of this post reflects what Emma was chanting as she jumped out of bed this morning. Needless to say, she was pretty excited about being a big kindergarten girl! Of course the excitement did not entice her to get ready with any more haste than normal but then, she wouldn't be Emma if she didn't have to be strongly encouraged ~1000 times to get something done. She did manage to get ready in time to take a few photos before we left the house. The first photos are courtesy of an idea on Pinterest. The idea is that she will wear the same t-shirt on the first day of school up through her senior year to show how she has grown from year to year.
When we got to school, Emma wanted us to just drop her off. We quickly vetoed that since she will only have one first day of kindergarten and like it or not, we were walking her in. Of course, once we entered the building she was off. She did stop by the library to get a hug from Ms. Neesvig and then was off to her classroom. She was off and running but did indulge us with a couple of photos and we were able to get hugs before we left although we had to ask because we were the farthest thing from her mind. On the bright side, it is good to know that we have a confident, independent child!
We had a back to school dinner at the Purple Cow tonight and based upon her recap of the day, I think it is going to be a great year for Emma in Ms. Fortenberry's kindergarten class!
