First day of school.

And so it begins. We have a child in school!  It’s a pretty surreal moment for a parent from my experience.  Lydia could not wait for her day to begin.  She is in afternoon kindergarten so we had all morning to prepare.  And take our time taking pictures too of course. 🙂  The time finally came to walk her to the school bus.  She was cool as a cucumber and incredibly excited.  I, on the other hand, was pretty nervous!  But the fact that she was incredibly happy and excited, made me happy and excited for her.  I thought I was going to be a big old mess, but her happiness was contagious and I ended up being more brave than I thought.  Watching that bus drive off with her in it gave me a bit of anxiety attack, but we followed her to the school to watch her walk in the class room.  Lydia even has a couple of friends in her class from the neighborhood which made her that much more excited.  She has been eating up everything about school ever since.  I am grateful for this brave, happy, and positive little girl.  Her outlook of life always amazes me and I hope she always stays this way.  Now we are just trying to get used to the daily grind of school.  Lydia loves it of course, it’s me who is adjusting to the daily school schedule!  Hazel and I sure do miss our Lydia during the afternoon.
