Maddy's first day of kindergarten
Maddy had her first day of Kindergarten and loved it. She wore a stylish red and black dress, complete with plaid skirt and black Scotty dog. She also had her backpack all set with all the things that she would need at school including a painters smock and a resting blanket (Goldy Gopher of Course). She bucked the trend a bit with her choice of backpack and opted out of pink, princess or Hello Kitty. She did not do Dora either, instead she opted for the Star Wars, The Clone Wars backpack. Rest assured, she does have a pink Hello Kitty lunch bag. We arrived and filled out some paper work as well as met some her classmates. She also started getting acclimated to her new classroom and all of the cool things that were inside. We were then off to lunch, but not before washing our hands (remember the big circular washing sink - hasn't changed). The kids were served a snack and practiced their pin codes. The little ones seemed a little nervous at first. After brunch, the kids got to learn about bus safety while the grown-up got acclimated to the school nurse and principal. We returned to class at about the same time the kids returned from the bus. The teacher introduced herself and talked about what class would be like. The kids worked on their first assignment. Just like that we were done and on our way home. The second day, was the first day that Maddy actually rode the bus home, started her pre-school YMCA program and had her first full-day kindergarten experience. She really enjoyed it and is excited about kindergarten.
