First Day of School 2012

This morning went amazingly well and Madison was very excited and didn't seem nervous at all!  Yes I am making my senior hold a sign.  That's what happens when you have a sister 12 years younger than you, however I don't feel too bad since you get to reap the magic of Christmas and Easter for many more years than you were intended to. :) I found the signs on Pinterest!

After pictures Alyssa gave Madison a huge hug and wished her a great first day of school!

Madison's backpack is almost as big as she is!

She was very excited to get to school, but once she got there and sat down, I think reality set in. I think her expression speaks for itself...

She's getting read to color her sheet.

And then I gave her a hug and said goodbye. She asked me if I was going to cry..after giving me a very concerned look and me feel immediately guilty for having her worry on her first day of school, I quickly lied and said no and then she gave me a great big smile. The teacher than proceeded to ask me if I was ok. I wonder if she was afraid I just wasn't going to So I took one more picture on my way out. 

Then I went home and bawled like a baby. I am sure she will have a great time in Kindergarten and now I just need to focus on all the projects I've been dying to do the past 5 years. :)  The next post will be on the preparation for Kindergarten...I'm doing the posts a little backwards, but I was so excited to post the pictures from today I couldn't help it. :)

After school we are going to do a 'First Day of School Interview'. Just a great time capsule keepsake. :) We'll also do a Last Day of School Interview as well and make it a tradition.
