Well my baby girl has grown up in it seems like 2 weeks or so and is now in KINDERGARTEN!!!! This house is still in a little shock seeing our baby girl very independently heading off for school!!
Let me fill you in a little. Jacob has been home schooled for the last 2 years and we are Homeschooling this year too, 4th grade. As Brian and I were praying about Jenna's schooling we just weren't sure what to do. Jenna had informed us that she wanted a real bus, a real teacher and a real school building. Now our children are exact opposites!! In a nutshell we felt it would be fine to try our excellent school district out. Just for Jenna that is. So on August 28, our baby became a kindergartner.
We very confidently arrived to school for the 1st day, mommy and Jacob hung around for a few minutes to make sure she was comfortable. She was a little quite and so I asked her if she wanted me to stay longer or go on home. She said "I'm ready for you to leave now" What ??? Thats it!! No hugs, no kisses. Just a very sweet smile and we were on our way. The nerves in my stomach immediately began to churn and continued until she was back safe with me. She loved it by the way and said she couldn't way till tomorrow to ride the bus. Tomorrow has now come and gone and yes she loved the bus too! I can't tell you how proud I am of this little independent girl of mine, WOW she really likes it!!!! I'm so excited to see her learn. Gotta love her she is a go getter~but she will always be my baby girl.
