First Day of Kindergarten!

Today was Mimi’s first day of kindergarten!  She’s been a little nervous and has had lots of questions, mostly about if she’ll make friends and whether the kids will like her.

The day we got her new backpack she spent 15 minutes trying it on and practicing her “nice smile” in the mirror.  She wanted to make sure the kids at Kindergarten “won’t be scared” and would know she’s friendly.

(That sound you hear is my heart breaking a little-oof.)

But this morning as I snapped a few pictures of her before we headed to school she struck this pose and declared, “I’m a super hero!”

The extra-wide stance cracks me up but I couldn’t agree with her more.  All the heart-eyes.

Normally our carpool will drop the kids off in the morning but today I walked her into school.  She didn’t cry at all and neither did I.  We were both troopers 😉

She came home happy and looking forward to going back.  I’m so proud of her.
