Today Gabby officially became a kindergartner! Gabby woke up bright and early and was so very excited about her first day. She helped Daddy make a smoothie and drank it while eating a waffle and watching cartoons. Then Mommy curled her hair and helped her get dressed in the kitty dress she bought for the first day of school. Mommy presented Gabby with a small heart necklace that fits inside Mommy's big heart necklace, that way when we missed each other we could just touch our necklace and know they are in each other's hearts always.
We took a few pictures (all included in this blog) and then the three of us headed to school. We arrived at Gabby's school and she lead us straight to her classroom. When we arrived to my surprise we were the last to arrive! Everyone was already seated and the teacher was about to start the lesson, so Gabby settled in quickly and started attending to the teacher before Mommy and Daddy even left the room (she is such a mature little girl). We each kissed her cheek and left the room.
Mommy was very very sad to see how big Gabby has become. Letting her got to 'real' school was difficult. Daddy had to hug Mommy a long time to console her. We are both very excited and know Gabby will excel in school.
Mommy and Grandma were the second in line to pick her up. Grandma and Mommy took Gabby for ice cream to celebrate her first day of school being completed! Gabby said her teacher was nicer than she thought she would be and that she loved school. She said that she 'chit chatted' on the playground, read all day, and did art. Gabby played with her friends after school and seemed to already be following her schedule well. I think it's going to be a great school year!
