LMNOB's First Day of Kindergarten

This picture was taken last Tuesday when the school officially opened:

LMNOB in our backyard this morning (we thought in front of the willow tree would be a good first day of school picture tradition, to show the growth of our tree too!) I wish she would have relaxed more for the picture, but she went into stiff-poser mode, lol.

We had a whole-family send-off, with Daddy and Punkinhead snapping pics along the way:

LMNOB is a whole head+ taller than most of her classmates, which Charlie Brown and I still can't figure out!

Each child got to pose with the teacher - again, we see the stiff-poser mode:

Finally, as they lined up to go into the classroom:

Well, she's off, and we have not shed a tear - though we both came close when a tearful mother made LMNOB's teacher cry, lol. There was one little girl who was really, really upset, like 18 mos-old separation anxiety upset, but LMNOB just looked very eager, and as if she was wondering, "Why is this taking so long, let's get to school!"


  1. Awwwww.....those pics are great! Thanks for posting them. Love the willow tree tradition. Can't wait to hear how her first day went!

  2. Awww... is right. That is just too cute. Kinda makes me think eventually I might want one of those for myself.

    But not for a while.

    In the meantime, I'll live vicariously through you!
