It's official...we have a Kindergartener!!!

Friday was the little pumpkin's long anticipated first day of school and boy was she excited!! I was soooo glad we had taken pictures outside {last week} because it stormed all night and it was dark and dreary Friday morning.
Ater our little {back to school party}, we had pizza for dinner, Grace's choice, and then it was time for bed...
...but not before sprinkling some of the jitter glitter her teacher gave her!!
While the little pumpkin snoozed, I put together these little treats for her classmates...
Free whale printable {here}.
Playdough recipe {here}.
We had blueberry muffins for breakfast...Grace's favorite...and then we were ready to go!
But not before our first day of school tradition!!
When I grow up I want to be......
Hmmm...well, let's see...I want to be lots of things, why do I have to pick just one??!
Past years' answers {here} and {here}.
I went with her first answer!!
But you know...I also want to be a vet, and a dentist, and a ballerina, and a mom and a...
Quick pics with mama and daddy...
...and off we go!
Lined up by class and making new friends...
...but oh, so happy to see old ones! It's Layla!!!!!!!!!
Bye-Bye Mama and Daddy! 
She was a champ.  No tears and soooo excited to be back at school.
And right after the four kindergarten classes marched off to their classrooms, all of us parents headed to the school library for the Boo Hoo Breakfast!
This is my dear friend Bridgette. We were sorority sisters in college (Phi Mu) and we've been close friends ever since. Her little boy Hayden also started kindergarten. I still can't believe we're old enough to have Kindergarteners!!!
Grace was all smiles when I picked her up. She had a great day and said she couldn't wait to go back on Monday.  I asked her what her favorite part of the day was and she said she liked it all.

Noonie went with me to pick her up so she could learn the carpool routine, and then treated the littles to their favorite frozen yogurt.
Look who was super excited to see his sister come home...
Grace did mention that she loved the way they sign-in every morning..."We touch the whale with our name on it (on the smartboard) and we dive it into the ocean.  When all the whales are at the bottom of the ocean, Ms. V knows that we're all here."
Boy, oh boy, things sure have changed since I answered "here" during roll call!! Ha!
