The First Day

So today was the First Day of school.  Kindergarten.  My baby.

We love her school and we love her teachers.  She is so excited and will do great.

I cried in my car for 10 minutes after I dropped her off in the school before coming to work.

Bittersweet day.  It's a rite of passage for every parent.

Her sweet sweet teacher gave us this on the First Day.

The First Day
I gave you a little wink and smile
As you entered my room today.
For I know how hard it is to leave
And know your child must stay.
You've been with her for five years now
And have been a loving guide.
But now, alas, the time has come
To leave her at my side.
Just know that as you drive away 
And tears down your cheeks may flow
I'll love her as I would my own
And help her learn and grow.
For as a parent, I too know
How quickly the years do pass
And that one day soon it will be my turn
To take my child to class.
So please put your mind at ease
And cry those tears no more
For I will love her and take her in
When you leave her at my door.

6:30 This am, ready to go. We don't leave til 7:20.
