Good Morning Kindergarten! is the day. I am going to just keep telling myself, "This is the day that the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it." But honestly, I am thinking, HOW IS IT POSSIBLE SHE IS STARTING KINDERGARTEN! I JUST HAD HER!!! But, today is the day. K got up and made Chloe heart pancakes. She was still sleeping.

And when my Kindergartner woke up...she was excited to get her American Girl dressed and have her special breakfast!

Then it was time to get her in her uniform, and take some pictures. I asked Chloe what she wanted to be when she grew up.....

I hope Princess Mermaids make a lot of money, they are definitely rare. I have never actually met one. I am going to do a sign like that every year and see how she changed her mind through the years. I am assuming that she will not want to be a Princess Mermaid when she is a senior. Here are a couple other shots of her before we left the house!

And of course, Chloe and her look-a-like!

I said, "Who is going to Kindergarten?"

Finally, we arrived to school and she walked straight in to her classroom!

Mrs. Powell let Chloe pick out her cubby...

And then it happened...she left me and went to sit at her assigned seat and started looking at her work.

I was the BAD parent who made Chloe quit focusing on her school work because I needed a picture of her and Mrs. Powell on her first day of school!

And then one thing led to another, and "The Crew" met up in the hall to socialize!

I guess they thought that they did not have to stay in their classrooms. So, my once, focused on work, child....quickly became the socializer, ONCE AGAIN!

 Happy 1st Day of Kindergarten!

The Night Before Kindergarten!

Sleeping Beauty is fast asleep.....

Any I have everything she needs ready for the morning! Even her American Girl Doll will be wearing a DA uniform!

Does it get much sweeter than this?

Promotion Sunday

Chloe is finally moving into the Kindergarten wing at church.  What does this mean?  It means that it is PROMOTION SUNDAY, and Chloe will go to Sunday School. and then children's church, or Praise Club!

She was not overly thrilled this morning to be getting "promoted."  Once she calmed down, I got her to let me take her picture.  

When we got to church she started crying. She said "I don't want to go to Kindergarten!" Poor Baby (yes, I think she is still a baby). When we went to pick her up at Praise Club, she was happy :) I think this Kindergarten thing is gonna work out just fine!

Kindergarten Rocks!

Chloe went reluctantly to her Back To School Bash. You see, she was separated from her friends. Not just a couple of her friends....ALL OF HER FRIENDS! Every single one of them. In fact, she cried for 2 days when I told her who her teacher was, and who her friends' teachers were. It was happy at my household. Here she is posing for a few pictures before we walk in to meet her teacher.

Look how big she is!!! This summer at Bear Camp she met a girl named Abby, and it just so happens that Abby is in her class, so at least she will know someone. Here is Chloe and Abby at Back to School Bash!

We finally arrived at Mrs. Powell's room. Mrs. Powell is a new teacher this year. So even I did not know her teacher. Here is Chloe meeting her teacher for the first time.

After Chloe and Mrs. Powell had some small talk, Chloe went to do some art on the dry erase boat. She was making herself right at home!

Before we left we had to get one good picture of Chloe and her Kindergarten teacher!

On our way out, we ran into one of Chloe's best friends, Annalee. There are 4 girls, also known as "The Crew!" They gave themselves that name. Crazy girls. I thought that we may have a melt down, because it just reminded her that they were not in the same class, but I was pleasantly surprised. Here she is with another member of "The Crew", Annalee.

Such sweet memories! I cannot believe my baby girl is already in Kindergarten. Where has time gone?
