Today was the big day! Emily has been counting down the days until Kindergarten since the end of July. In preparation for shifting sleep patterns, we bought a little alarm clock that we had been slowing setting earlier for the last five days. Emily was so excited for school, she was up and dressed to the shoes by 6:20am. She even slept on top of her covers so she wouldn't have to make her bed in the morning. :o)
We didn't actually leave for school until 8:00am. All four of us

Lincoln & I got home just in time to walk back to school to pick Emily up in the afternoon. Lincoln was so excited to wear his new Thomas backpack and see the school buses again.
Emily's first comment was, "It was fun, but it's a long day! I think I need a nap!" I could have used a nap at that point, too! She was so tired she rode home in the double stroller while Lincoln walked and showed off the pretty red leaf he had found. It was a great way to start the new school year!
