Kindergarten

Seems like yesterday Claire and I were little buddies and she was just 18 months old. I miss those precious easy quiet days. Claire was my everything. She still is. She started Kindergarten today. She's been hyper for days and just has not been able to contain her excitement! I can't believe it's here and my dad warns me that before I know it, she'll be graduating from high school! Let's just take one little step at a time...

 Her cute first day outfit...


On the porch with her best friend, Violet. She is so crazy about Violet and they are just two peas in a pod! She's one of our greatest blessings about moving into this neighborhood!


 I love those freckles! Everyone does!...

 Waiting for the bus. She has been anticipating this bus ride for months. She loved it!...

 I dropped her off and followed the bus to the school to make sure she made it to her class okay...

 Here she is getting off of the bus...

 She was pretty excited when she spotted me!

 Lining up to go inside...

Clairey's cute class and teacher...

Waving goodbye. Good thing I was wearing sunglasses. I cried and cried and cried and cried...

 Boo Hoo...

Going in like a big girl...

See you cutie! ( I saw her less than 2 hours later. It was short day. Ha!)

Why is it so tough to send them off? Here's the beginning of a new chapter of our lives. I hope she loves it and thrives. I think she will.
