Ellie Started Kindergarten!!

Wednesday was Ellie's official first day of school!! She has a wonderful teacher who Ellie seemed to feel comfortable with very quickly. I think I was more nervous and anxious about her starting school than she was. I was able to go with her on the first day for an orientation, but then on thursday I had to drop her off. I thought I would cry, but amazingly I didn't. I did miss her and feel sad to have her gone, but I have to admit that I got a whole lot of things done with her in school. I forgot how much easier just having one child is. Aeryn will start preschool on September 11th, and for 3 weeks I will actually have 2 hours twice a week, solely to myself. What will I do? Probably clean the house :( !! Who knows, maybe a little scrapbooking! Anyways, back to Ellie. She very quickly made friends with a cute girl named Anna. They are both fairly shy and seem to fit together really well. They do most of the class activities together and play together during recess.

The morning of Ellie's first day, Aeryn woke up very sad. She wanted to go to school with Ellie. She wanted to even go to her own school. It is hard for her to understand that she still has to wait 2 weeks before she begins. She wants so badly to be a "big girl" like Ellie. But then sometimes she says she is a baby and wants to be "snuggled". I love this picture of the two of them. Ellie posed them for this picture. I thought it sure turned out cute!!
