My little muffin is officially a kindergartener!

I drove her into school when her bus was super late, assuming they’d never fixed the clerical mistake that had her off the bus schedule– apparently the bus came right after we left.

To be perfectly honest, driving her in on her first day was way easier on me. I got to walk her in and hand her over to the principal myself instead of worrying about her unnecessarily.

My girl marched right into that school without looking back. She’s going to have a great year.


Here she is refusing to show off the huge smile she had been wearing all morning. What a diva!

And here she is eagerly anticipating the arrival of the school bus. She was too excited to remember to hide her smile!

I miss my little muffin and the constant flapping of her mouth (seriously, I don’t think she ever stops talking during her waking hours). It’s awfully quiet around here. Can’t wait to hear how the day went!
