{first day of kindy} | Dallas Child Photography

(quickpage found at Weeds and Wildflowers)

Oh, the first day! It’s been such a long time coming…I can’t believe my oldest is now an official student! Thank goodness the whole fam went for “Meet the Teacher” the previous Friday, so we could see Peach’s new school…the visual of her teacher, the kids, the physical classroom, really helped prepare our little lady (and her sad momma) for the first day.

Since she knew what to expect, she wasn’t very nervous!

She held Fella’s hand the whole way into the building as daddy-o and I walked behind. :)

She sat down like a big girl and THEN looked a little unsure once reality set in! That little nervous look only stayed around for about a minute though…

I had a hard time leaving, so I peeked in at her through the door for a while…she didn’t even know I was there!

It brought back TONS of great memories being at school. I taught 2nd grade for 4 years and really had a great experience (and loved elementary school when I was little!), so I was SUPER excited for Peach. I love that she will socialize with peers in the school community (it’s SO strong here!), be able to look up to other adults as role models, and gain confidence in this academic setting. I just can’t believe this day is here!!!

{And, because I wrote this a couple days AFTER school started, she LOVED her first day. She said there were lots of rules (with a frown), but has been so eager to get up early and go in the mornings. SO proud of her.}

*Stay tuned for some SOCCER pics…yes, I became a mom of a kindergartner AND a soccer mom in the same day. :)

Have a super day!

*Update for clients:::holiday card options are ALMOST ready for you to see (next week or two!)! I have an awesome variety this year — they’re classy, mod, chic! You’ll LOVE! :)
