today was a very exciting day for our family. our second little baby went off to kindergarten! she was so excited, and so ready to start school. i on the other hand was a little shocked at how hard it was for me to see her go. thank goodness for half day kinder!
this big first grader could not wait to spend all day at school, see her friends again, make new friends and eat lunch at school!
we had grandma and grandpa Beardsley there to take a family picture, and to be with us for flag ceremony. we love that Benjamin Franklin Charter School puts such a strong emphasis on patriatism! our kids benefit so much from this school's curriculum.
(Maddie did look a little nervous here, but her teacher told me she marched in, sat down and got right to work reciting her phonograms and following the rules like a pro!)
Anna reported that she has several friends from her old class, and plenty of new friends to meet. this is going to be a great year!
