She's off to school!

She was so excited she kept giggling over breakfast. She even let me do her hair without any whining or fussing. (not that I'm particularly good at doing her hair)

Complete with her new, "I picked it out all by myself!" princess backpack, Savannah started school today.

I just dropped her off. Its too quiet around here! No one is here to ask me, "What shall we do today that's fun!" *sniff* She's growing up way too fast.

Just before we left for school, I pulled her into my bedroom so we could have a prayer together. I said I would say it and I prayed that she would be good and listen to the teacher, be safe, and all that other stuff that parents think of.

When I was done, I jumped up and said, "Okay, let's go!"

But I looked back down and she was still on her knees and had started her own prayer. She prayed that she would have fun, make friends, and all the other stuff that kids think of.

At one point in her prayer she said, "And bless that the other kids won't pick on me."

You know, that is one thing that didn't even cross my mind. Only goes to show the difference in thinking of a parent and a child.

And its a good thing too.

Good luck to you both! I'm sure the kids will love her, too.

Just the other day my sister-in-law mentioned how she felt so odd when her daughter started school and the house was quiet. It only took her a few days to get over it! Besides, her two boys filled the silence in due time. I'm sure yours will, too. In fact, I am very interested to hear of what they will start doing with Big Sister gone during the day.

School already? Wow. Is it half-day or full-day?

Serene is my name, not my life! said...

Heidi, LOL, I'll do my best to keep you up to date.

Kathrine: Its only half-day. Actually, I had no idea there was such a thing as "half-day kindergarden" till we moved out here. I just assumed it was full-day everywhere.
Guess not.

Oh, she is growing up so fast! She looks so excited. I hope she has a wonderful time and makes great friends.

Everybody keeps asking Hannah about school and she says "I don't need school!" lol I'm so glad I'm not sending her off - I would be so sad.
