Rayna Goes to Kindergarten

September 8th, 2011 · No Comments

If you follow Nicole and I on facebook, twitter, flickr, or just happen to be anywhere within earshot, you already know that Rayna had her first day of Kindergarten today.  I’m feeling a lot of emotions tonight about that but the biggest one is wonderment that our tiny little baby climbed up the steps of the school bus this morning and went off to school for the whole day.  Somehow, when I wasn’t looking, our little girl started growing up.

Rayna Goes to Kindergarten (13)

She has been pretty excited all summer about today but, in the end, it proved a little anti-climatic.  Nicole, Kaylee, and I walked down to the bus stop (about a block and a half from our house) and waited with Rayna.  We got our hugs and kisses out of the way before the bus arrived so she could focus on getting on with the other kids while Nicole and I deployed the camera and camcorder.  Just before she got on the bus, she looked over and said “I love you” and blew a kiss.  That’s a memory I don’t want to lose; hopefully, recording it here will help me hold on to it.

As far as I know, the day went well.  When she got home, she didn’t have a lot to say.  We asked if she had a good day and she said “yeah”.  Asked what she did, she said “I don’t remember.  I had two snacks.”  And then she asked if she could go out to play.  I suspect that she is still processing it all.

Next week, Kaylee has a big day as she starts her first year of preschool.  The milestones just keep coming…
