First Day of School

On a cool and rainy Friday, Ellie had her first day of Kindergarten. Because it was raining, Fern drove Ellie to school. Just before pulling into the parking lot Ellie said, “Mauma (her grandmother) said that if I’m afraid, to take 3 deep breaths.” At which point Ellie took 3 or 4 deep breaths.

The following conversation took place as Ellie was walking across the parking lot to go into the school building.

Fern: I love you!
Ellie: I love you too.
Ellie: See you tonight.
Ellie: Tell Daddy I, uh … If Daddy calls, tell him I love him.
Ellie: Bye …. (as she walks into the building)

It’s hard to believe that she is going to school. They grow up so fast. Last night she finally said that she was excited about going. Quite and emotional day for everyone.

  1. Wow, I can’t believe how big Ellie is getting. Sadly, before you know it, you’ll be preparing for high school.

    Good luck in Kindergarten, Ellie! You’ll do great, I’m certain!
