Morgan had her first day of Kindergarten today. There is just something about her having to follow a bell schedule and bring her own snack in her own lunch box that makes her seem so grown up all of a sudden. We all walked to school this morning, and by that I mean I pushed all the kids in the stroller...kind of heavy after a while. Once we got there, Morgan took Elle's hand and they went to play on the playground together. There were a bunch of big kids on the playground, but the girls managed to go down 2 slides before the bell rang. Her teacher came outside to bring the class in as soon as the bell rang, and Morgan all of a sudden froze up. I dragged her in loving mother fashion to the door where, luckily, there was a school official who offered to help Morgan to her classroom. Morgan took her hand and walked inside without so much as a glance back at Mom.
I picked her up three hours later. The teacher said she was nervous and shook a lot, but didn't cry at all. Morgan said they got to sing songs and draw pictures. She is excited to go back tomorrow and already has tomorrow's outfit laid out on the chair in her room.

I am so glad she is starting to do better - hopefully soon she will look forward to going everyday. I can't believe how big she is getting!

I can't believe she's big enough for Kindergarten!

She does look just all grown up with her school outfit and backpack on.
