We Have Survived...

The first week of school! My sometimes shy and clingy kiddo surprised me by greeting the first day of kindergarten head on. No hesitation and no tears (at least from her.) She gave me a kiss, got in line next to her buddy Kendra and waved goodbye as Mrs. Cox marched them single file into the school. She almost defied gravity dancing off the bus later that afternoon, she was so excited. Mrs. Cox is wonderful, creative and sweet. And Olivia is having the time of her life, meeting some new friends and thinks the bus is the greatest adventure ever. I'm so relieved that we have both survived week 1 with no trauma!

She looks even older than when i saw you a month ago! Maybe it's the backpack :). I'm glad the first week went so well. Caden still has a while before he starts--it's all so bittersweet, isn't it?
