class of 2024?!

We attended Mikayla's Kindergarten "Round Up" a week and a half ago. I can't believe I'm signing my baby girl up for Kindergarten!

All smiles at the entrance to her new school!

One of the stations was having your child get their fingerprints printed.

Next up we went to visit a couple of the teachers and the classrooms.

They colored a picture of a sunflower...

...and got to plant a sunflower seed. The teachers said that when the sunflower seedling starts growing into a flower, then it would be time for Kindergarten to begin! I thought that was such a cute idea. Now let's just hope her seedling will sprout, so we can transport it, so it will grow! *wink*

The kids played on the playground for a little bit.

And then we went for a quick bus ride. I think she was a little disappointed to find out that we live too close for her to take the bus (not like I would let my BABY take the bus!!)

Class of 2024...that just sounds so crazy!

Daddy got to take a break from work for a bit to come with us, but had to leave before we did, so he took the van home to get his car and because it was a beautiful day, we got to walk home! I'm hoping for many nice days (wishful thinking!) so we can walk to pick her up after school as much as we can. There is a park on the way, so it will be fun to let them play a little each day.

There weren't any tears shed, but come the first day of school, we'll see if that still holds true!

I can't believe my oldest granddaughter is going to be in kindergarten! Where did the time go? She is such a sweetie. Love you Mikayla!

What a neat way to ease them into school. She is going to have a great time.

Oh my goodness how time flies! What a fun Kindergarten round-up! I love the sunflower idea. Every once in awhile I get a little sad that my girls don't have that same experience.

Oh I so feel your pain. We did Trey's kindergarten screening a few weeks ago and then teacher meetings and lets just say I am not ready for this. But Trey is totally thrilled and can you believe he wants to ride the bus. We will see how long that lasts.
I will be thinking of you with the start of school!
Hope all is well with you. Have a fabulous day!
