Lexi's First Day of School

Lexi started kindergarten this year. I had a lot of people ask me if I was going to cry. My response was always the same: Heck no! I've been waiting for this day for the last five years. 

Lexi was ready. I was ready. Her sisters were ready. It was time for Lexi to leave the nest. 

We went on a special school shopping trip and she chose her very own backpack.  I'm pretty sure she put it on about 2 hours before we had to leave.

What little girl wouldn't want her Dad to walk her to school?

Our school has a separate playground just for the kindergarten kids.

Every morning they sing a silly song while they stand in line.

Lexi had a great first day. 

 And there really was no crying at all.

That is so great! I really hope that Ashkon's first day is the same. :-)
