Even though we JUST brought this little girl home from the hospital, today she started her first day of school. It doesn't seem possible. I've had a while to get used to is, but it didn't seem to help because I've been weepy for the past 2 weeks and kind of dreading this day! I even starting browsing homeschooling blogs! Still, I put on a happy face and tried to sound as excited as possible for Maggie's sake--literally making Kindergarten sound as much fun as going to Disneyland to get her excited about it!
We all walked to school together this morning--bright and early at 7:35 am! We live really close, but she starts at 7:52 am!! CRAZY.
She helped me pick her outfit out (*Note: this is the only time she will probably wear a dress--let alone anything WHITE--to school. I know my daughter and once she gets comfortable she will surely be hanging upside down from the monkey bars at recess!).

Walking to school The obligatory first day of school picture!
With her backpack almost half her size :(

Tears--saying goodbye.

Here's to a great year. Now I have to go and cry for a while.

Oh I have tears in my eyes looking at the picture of Maggie in Kody's arm.
What a sweet girl! I can't wait to hear how she liked it.
How are you? Longest day EVER, huh??

I can't believe Maggie is already in Kindergarten! Where does the time go?

I can't believe it! Well, I have to tell you... I thought she couldn't get any cuter, but she keeps getting more and more beautiful! Wonderful pics, Jenny! Thanks for sharing and prepping me for what I have to look forward to one day soon. :-)
