The special dress grandma made was waiting. Ready to cheer and impress.
There was the mandatory smiling pancake.
Followed by the mandatory first day of school photo.
And then we were there at the school. Signing her in and saying goodbye. Leaving her in the hands of her smiling Kindergarten teacher.
I admit I was nervous most of the day. Did she have enough for breakfast? Will she get along with the rest of her class? Will the day be too long after two months off? I know she has been in school since she was two, but somehow this year is different, bigger. We made it through the day and by all accounts it was a success. We celebrated cupcake style.
