First day of school!

Rylie started Kindergarten today which was a huge milestone in our lives...one I really never expected to actually arrive! In fact, I have been kind of dreading this day for a couple of months now but I have to admit the anxiety leading up to today was much worse than what I had anticipated. Rylie did so good! She walked bravely into her room and went to "circle" time when it began...although she did have a few tears at that point. I had promised myself I wouldn't let her see me cry so I kept my promise. A friend of ours though, whose son is in her class, did start crying when she saw Rylie get teary-eyed! She did great though we left soon after that. When I picked her up she said she had a great time! She has a wonderful teacher who is a great match for her personality. I don't think the day could have gone any better! It was emotional but not in a sad way...in a way that we were able to celebrate this next phase of life and I can now look forward to all of the memories to come!
