There’s something about pure little girl excitement that makes sending her to school ok. Blue has been ready to start school almost all summer! I don’t think anyone could have been more ready! I for one was a lot less excited then she and I had to toughen up and put on a happy face!  Love this little school girl!

And check out the “Kindergarten Paparzzi!” We moms are crazy!

Who else had a new kindergartner this year! Admit it…. who cried?

    Love how you spelled out the grade she is in–what a clever idea to the “first day of school” photo! She is just darling–enjoy the rest of your weekend!

    Very cute with the chalk writing and your daughter posing by it, you should do that for every year you will never forget the grade when you look back at the pics!

    I remember when my kids went to school ( a very long time ago) and yes I cried especially with the youngest going

    My second child started kindergarten this year – I made it about half way home before I started tearing up, but I have a 4yo still at home so I had to suck it up for the rest of the walk until I could get us home. I love the chalk writing!

    Oh my gosh, she is ADORABLE!!! Those pictures are seriously too cute!

    We both cried the first week. She still cries at drop-off even a month into it which makes it so hard for me too. But what do you do, they have to go to school. And all the reports I get say that she does just fine once she’s there. Wonder if she’s just toying with me to get out of it? She’s our first so I’m not sure what to believe anymore :)

    My Baby Started This Year, I Didn’t Cry Taking Her But When I Went To Pick Her Up Is When It Set In and Then I Cried LOL

    Aww… she looks just like you! I don’t have kids, but I cried throughout Toy Story III, thinking about sending my future kids off to college. I know I’ll be a wreck when my (future) babies start kindergarten! :)

    What a great way to take first day of school photos! I pinned it on Pinterest for future reference. :)
    She is adorable!

    I cried! My oldest is in kindergarten!

    Love the pics with Kindergarten written out. Awesome idea!

    Wow! The chalk drawings has given me so much inspiration! My oldest is taking kindergarten over this year (she was four when she started last year!) , and this would look so cute! I also think I should get a portable chalk board to MOPS and take pictures of the kids in the their classrooms with it. So cute! Stumbled on it!

    I so love your picture of all the parents! That is exactly how it is the first day of Kindergarten EVERY year! I teach Kindergarten and this is my 8th year doing it. The parents are so great! I love that they all have their cameras out the first day and are snapping pictures all morning. They even follow the kids into the room and take pictures inside! The kids are funny too, they pose and look all adorable for the camera.
    I hope she is continuing to enjoy Kindergarten! And I hope you are holding up as well! Good luck!
