KINDERGARTEN



Yesterday Ellie started kindergarten. I feel highly blessed and grateful for the school we got her into, but it's still hard. She is extremely excited and I am getting there. So for now it's KJ and I during the day which he just loves. Today and probably tomorrow I will be trying to get our new schedule in order. You would think it would be easier with only one child, but for me it's not. First on my list is to have coffee with this sweet lady.

Good luck adjusting. I assume it's very hard on you too!

Precious photos! I remember when my daughter went off to Kindergarten and left me with her little brother. I felt a bit lost for weeks (and had spontaneous crying bouts). Now, she's in third grade and he'll go off to Kindergarten next year. Time flies. I need a tissue.

So cute! I hope she had a great first day! Her little uniform is so cute!

LindsB said...

Yeah for a great school, that is so exciting!

Have fun with Marianne!

Haven and Home said...

I am looking forward to it! I can't get over how cute Ellie is, I could eat her up! Those shoes with the jumper....my uniform never looked that good!

W goes back to school in 2 weeks, he is already telling me he doesn't need to go. They seem to 'know' so much at that age.
Ellie makes her uniform look so stylish, of course, she is your daughter. Hope the transition goes smoothly and please tell Marianne hello. All of you southern bloggers make me want to make a trip down there just for a lunch or coffee date!

So sweet. I love the colors in the uniform.. different from the usual, blue, red, green, yellow lot.
I know what you mean about 2 being easier than one.

She looks adorable in her uniform! Enjoy your day... even if it's only with one munchkin!

Estelle said...

What a doll. Her enthusiasm really shines through in these photos.

And I love her sneakers!

Hello Lover... said...

That first photo is adorable!

What great photos! I have to send my youngest off to Kindergarten in a couple weeks. I know he is ready... but I'm not.

Aimee@ the Functional Space said...

Congratulations Ellie! My niece Lucy started Kindergarten today too.

Amanda said...

Yay Ellie--she's going to rock kindergarten. Finding a schedule at the beginning of the year is difficult for everyone. Here's to you and the family finding your groove...

Punctuation Mark said...

she looks so adorable in that uniform... hope she is enjoying it!

Melissa said...

It will get easier, I promise (although I don't have anybody that old!) And coffee with Marianne-- jealous! Have fun!

Wahzat Gayle said...

what a cutie pie uniform... too sweet

Gracie said...

She's so sweet! Her uniform is really cute. It makes me realise how much I do like uniforms. Maybe it's a good thing they are mandatory in Australia :)

Sarah said...

Yea Ellie, kindergarten already. Wow. Love the sneakers with the uniform.

Donna said...

so bittersweet, she looks adorable!

Julie Holloway said...

How sweet! Adore her little uniform and her adorable sweet expression here. What a milestone...for you both!!! My youngest has one year left of pre-K...this time next year its safe to say I will be an emotional mess!

Thanks for stopping by the blog and congratulating me on the Southern Living kitchen,

Living It At Home said...

It goes by fast. May not feel that way now but before you know it....middle school! Ugh! Hang in there and enjoy every precious moment! Great age and they bring home such cute projects! She looks just like you!

Bron @ Baby Space said...

Aww, look at her in her cute wee uniform and sneakers. I think I know what you mean - two at home (when close in age) entertain each other but one on his own is more demanding of mum's attention! Is that what you mean? Congrats on this new milestone with your firstborn :)
How did she like her first day?

julie said...

she is absolutely adorable!! what a bittersweet day...going of to "big girl" school!!

Lucky Punk said...

She is so cute... all ladylike with the bow and uniform, but you can tell she has a little bit of a punk/tomboy edge, too. Love it!

Tucker said...

what a DOLL!

MB said...

Oh, sweet girl, off to kindergarten, how exciting! I love Ellie's uniform and her great choice of shoes! Happy belated birthday and btw I really like the zinc tables. I think if you're living somewhere warm and sunny a zinc table is a great choice. Having said that, I rarely meet a farmhouse table that I don't like. We are saving for new dining room furniture and the only thing that has been decided on is the shape of the table, round.

Katie said...

Adorable! Love the foot turned in from the second photo. :)
