kindergarten. it’s happening. whether we are ready or not. she meets her teacher on thursday. school starts next monday. during orientation last week she made her daddy go with her for the kids tour while i stayed behind in the parents meeting with teagan. 5 minutes in, she told him she was ok on her own and took off with the rest of the kids. she’s looking forward to lunch time. and the playground. and computer lab. and the library. she’s relieved the group of kindergarten teachers knew what criss-cross-apple-sauce was. she’s worried about the noisy toilets. and fire drills. she’s mad we won’t let her ride the bus. and she wants to wear purple from head to toe on the first day. it’s really happening.
