1st Day of Kindergarten

It's here!  The day she has been anxiously awaiting, and I have been not-so-secretly dreading.
My Kota Bear starts Kindergarten today.  **Pause here to wipe away stray tear**
Okay, I'm being a big baby about this, but I can't help it!  I have turned into the mother that I swore I wouldn't be.  I wasn't going to get all emotional about these big milestones!  Oh, well!  That's Karma, baby!

Isn't she Gorgeous???

She wanted to model all of her school clothes for all of you to enjoy, but there just wasn't time.
She is so funny.  She was showing me yesterday all the poses she was going to use.
This was the only one that she actually used in front of the camera, though.

Oh, and this one.

Showing off the Princesses.

1st homework assignment- decorate a paper doll to look like her.
My crafty kid.
You can't tell really well from this picture, but there are white buttons under the blue beads for the eyes.
She wanted to make sure her teacher knew there was white around the blue in her eyes!
I don't know many 5 year olds that pay so much attention to detail!

...Mommy's gonna need a box of tissues and some Dr. Pepper to get rid of the crying headache!


  1. Your comment totally made me laugh. Yup! Time to ROAR! You'll rock it and even if you don't - that little girl would look gorgeous in anything. Good luck!

  2. Very cute...she looks like she's so ready to go--that's a good thing!

  3. She is precious! My little one starts Kindergarten next Monday. We had registration yesterday and all I could think was, "Where has the time gone?" She is super excited and since I work at the school I keep telling myself that I am not going to get emotional. However, I know that may not be the case! haha Have a great weekend! :) Lana

  4. Oh my that little doll is simply the cutest! Didn't she do well?!

    Love it!
