Say it isn't so.

Someone please tell me that I did not just register my firstborn for Kindergarten.

And for those of you who have been here before....tell me when my tears will stop!

You will love it! I'm not a cry-er but even I (yes me!) got choked up over and over as we went thru the process last year. Meeting with the principal, the teachers, open house, first day, first day of carpool, second day, second day of carpool.... It does get eaiser and so much fun as they come home having learned new things and making friends. Emma came home yesterday singing "My Old Kentucky Home" (the state song) and I realized that she is developing a state identity and will recognize Kentucky as her home state. I had never thought about that. So many little things.

Sorry to ramble. Kindergarten has been a wonderful time for us and you have so much to look forward to!

Registration was a breeze, meeting the teacher went great, first day came and he marched right up to the bus smiled and wave. I walked back to the house all proud of myself. Then I started crying. LOL we're all different and she'll love the year. So will you. Plus she'll have all sorts of interesting information for you too.

I am homeschooling my five year old next year, and I keep trying to reassure myself that it's not just a cop-out so that I won't have to "let her go"! But I'm sure there's a bit of that motivating me! Bless your heart; I know it must be hard.

I have three little girls, too, and I'm afraid that by the time I get to the third one, I'll be kicking her out the door with a smile and a kiss!

I know...I know...I went through the same thing on Monday. Amazing though...I didn't cry. Now today I'm crying because now he's officially 5! I guess it just hit me.

It is so hard! But, it does get easier. It helped me that Addi was so excited to go. I did cry. A lot. I don't think I'll cry next year when she starts first grade, but will probably find myself crying again the next when Libby goes to kindergarten. :) If you think you'll miss Mara, just wait and see how much her sisters miss her. But, that was good for me because it made me "grow up and act like the mom". :)

I feel your pain, Carrie! I'm trying to be a big girl for Joseph's sake, but I don't know how convincing I am. Joseph had his end of the year preschool program and his last day of school today. I can't believe he's officially a kindergartener. It sounds so cliche, but they grow up so fast!

Hope you and baby Sam are doing well! You're all in my prayers.

Love you!

Yep, I'd be the same way. Just one of many reasons I'm homeschooling. I'll pray it gets easier for you!

Hey, I'm making the rounds tonight to try and spread the word about my talent show! Would you think about entering those cute gals of yours??

And spread the word! The contest starts on June 1st!
