First day of Kindergarten

3 years ago

This morning I dropped off my daughter to her first day of Kindergarten.  I had to take my 3 year old son with me so I knew it was going to be a short drop off.  We took pictures of my daughter at home and then we were off to school.  I thought it was going to be sad, dramatic but it wasn't. 

This was mostly because we got there 10 minutes before the start of school.  I had forgotten about morning rush hour traffic. I have to be at work by 7am, so I could not believe the amount of cars on the road at 7:30.  We got to school just in time to drop her off before the school bell rang. 

I was used to dropping my daughter off at daycare. I have been dropping her off for the last 5 years.  So I think she was used to being dropped off.  She was so excited to go also.  She has been asking me about kindergarten ever since we went to kindergarten round up in February.
