Watch out World Here She comes and there ain't no stopping her

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.

How absolutely adorable, sweet, sad, happy, exciting, scary - all at the same time :) Her Aunt LaLa is very proud of her. She is absolutely adorable. Where did the baby and my "sack of sugar" go?!?! Still sweet, but not so sure I could get her over my shoulder anymore. Love you Jenna - Happy Kindergarten Days! Janella, hope you continue to survive and that my baby's can give you the cuddlin you need :) Great pics!

Enjoyed the pictures so much. I liked school when I was a little girl a long time ago. Jenna is a sweetie and so is Jacob.

Love you,

Wow! I hadn't heard of your school news. Jenna is a doll. The other day I was putting hair barrets in Ashley's hair and it poofed a bit and she said "I don't like that fluff". My little independents are riding their bikes to school by themselves as of this week. Be still our Mother hearts! Take care!
