Only 16 more years to go.

Well, Kendall began her long journey of a lifetime full of learning. She started Kindergarten. Last night she was VERY nervous and shed some tears before going to bed. This morning she was full speed ahead for the most part. When she saw the bus she screamed out "The bus is coming. Here it comes". I snapped a picture of her on the bus steps and the anxiety on her face is heartbreaking. Thankfully she had a good day. The best part was recess (of course). The little playground was okay but the big playground after lunch was a BLAST!!! (I'm quoting). Her teachers are nice and she had fun in her room. The potties are little which was very exciting. She got to choose white or chocolate milk for lunch. I'll give you one guess on what she chose.:-) They have rest time which was a concern but she told me "Mom, you were right. I was glad we had rest time because my brain and body were tired." She was a little disappointed that she didn't learn how to read today. Ha. Ha. In good time dear. As for me, I was a wreck for half and hour after the bus pulled away. She is so tiny!!! I can't believe she's big enough to go to school. Grace kept walking around the house calling "kendy..kendy". I suppose we will survive without her. I'm sure I'll get over it now that all the kids will be going down for a nap in the afternoon and I will have 2 FULL hours all to myself. Yeah, I think I could get used to that.
