First day of Kinder

Today was the first day of kindergarten for Zara and Lexi. They were so excited. We drive by their school every day and they ask, "when can we go to school?" every day. They had orientation last week so we had already met their teacher and been to their classroom. This morning we all walked down the street to school and dropped them off in their class. They waved bye and that was that. It wasn't a big deal to them after going to preschool for over two years. 

This week is a warm-up "transition" with the kindergartners going just in the morning to learn the ropes before school officially starts for all grades next week. The school has over 500 kids and 4 kindergarten classes. We chose to have the girls in the same class this year, but will likely split them up next year

When we picked them up they were full of stories about breakfast, racoon books, rockets and filled me in on all the school procedures. Zara declared it "the best day ever" and Lexi said, "I didn't like it, I loved it."
