I am the mother of a Kindergartener. Hard to believe that 5 years have passed since Avery came to our family. The time has flown by but it’s also hard to remember a time without her. She was so super excited for school to start. She jumped right out of bed and got ready to go. She did not stop talking from our house to the school. Her teacher is Mrs. Langefeld (that’s who I was hoping for) and she seems really great. I got a long hug from Avery and a concerned look but then Mrs. Langefeld took her hand and off she went. No tears from either of us. (Although at one point my eyes welled up a little bit.) Later I took Mason and Brittain to storytime at the library then I really started to miss Avery because we’ve done that almost every week. Mason kept asking where Avery was going. When we went to pick her up she was all smiles and she loved her first day. Although she can’t remember anything they did. She did say they did no math. She can’t wait to go back on Monday. I’m less excited about having to be somewhere by 7:50 a.m. five days out of the week.
