Sunday Afternoon Pictures & Kylie's First Day of School

Okay, our new spot for Sunday Afternoon Pictures :)
And, I survived the first day of school! I was okay~~ really I was, all this morning. Getting up and ready was no problem, Matthew made a special breakfast for Kylie (toast with the marshmellows from the Lucky Charms decorated on top), Kylie had a special Father's Blessing last night (which put me more at ease) So, I was good to go. Then it hit me on the drive to school. :( My baby, my first child... she's in kindergarten, from this moment on, she will always be in school. We will always have first days, this is huge... and the tears began.
Yes, I dress them the same every day.

Nice quick family shot.

The girls from class :)

Kylie already knows 7 kids, I'm so glad Matthew got us switched into this class.Kylie at her desk.The classroom and Ms. Messerli singing and signing a goodbye song. Yes, by this point I was fighting back all my tears.
*Kylie was so happy!!! I think it could have been worse for me, I didn't feel so badly about leaving because I ended up staying in the school to do some PTA stuff. It was easier for me also because I knew how happy and how utterly excited Kylie was. After school, she told me all about the songs they sang, how they learned the weather and dates, she colored a star, and she did all the sign language from her song. It made it much easier, on me. :)

Congrats on making it through the first day, now you have to do it all over again next year! (I think sending them to 1st grade is even harder, it's like the real deal.)
Trevor starts school on Wednesday, I'm sure I'll be crying too! BTW she looked adorable for the big day!:)

I think it is so funny how different boys and girls are. MY girls are always excited to tell me what they did,and Mason doesn't hardly say anthing. He did tell me they read a story.

You're breaking my heart Nicole! I know how you feel, of course! It was really hard to send Raevyn to kindergarten this year. But they are so happy to go, huh. You all look so good. Seriously, Nicole, what are you doing? You are disappearing, you are so thin! You look great! TELL ME YOUR SECRETS!!! ;0) Love the picture with the girls! They are all so beautiful!
