First Day of Kindergarten



Here she is....my Sweet little Kindergartner ....loading up ready for her day!


Welcome to Eastwood!






Entering her class, this smile just kept getting bigger .......

One more pic with mommy pleassseeeee...."ok!"



So yes Kindergarten was a HUGE hit for Mary Bradford! She awoke bright and early (5:40a.m. to be exact) and was dressed, ready, and waiting by 6:15....I do not think Christmas morning was this exciting! On our way she had only 1 request...."mommy, please don't cry"......and so I followed her rule....as Brad and I took her in we had to keep reminding her to walk not run, walk not run, walk not run.....Mrs. Hand was very happy to see all the children, as they were to see her, she quickly had them begin coloring at their seats until all the students arrived. We watched as she unpacked her backpack with Mrs. Hand overseeing the entire process (she is very hands on with ALL the children), then she sat down quietly and began her coloring, never looking back to see if we were still there....so then we got the hint she's ok, we can leave (well that was Brad's idea,but I followed).... what a BIG girl she was, we are so proud of you MB it made mommy's rest of the day go GREAT!

Brad left for work and then all mommys were invited to the cafeteria for a boohoo breakfast, yes a few tears were shed....but many more laughs and sweet words about our kindergartners......we had breakfast and then were each given a poem to take home written by the PTA president.

My day turned out to be pretty great too!....even though Kindergarten doesn't start coming to PE until Monday I thoroughly enjoyed each class I had today & am very eager for tomorrow.......of course, not as eager as Mary Bradford......It's going to be a great year!

You can totally tell in the photos how excited she is! I know you must be so proud! I love that they had a special breakfast after for all of the mommies - what a wonderful idea!
