Alexis was up and ready to go at 7am this morning, dressed and ready with her backpack on her back. When she came downstairs this way to wake us up, the thought occurred to me that maybe I should have put her in morning kindergarten. I let her pick out a few outfits all on her own to wear to school. This is the one she wanted to wear on the first day, I absolutely loved it, and I think she has good taste, well most of the time.
I guess I did her hair in kind of a unique way with the braids, but she also wanted it curled, so she definitely got styled and fancy for her first day!
I just love this little girl and can’t believe that she is going to kindergarten this year. I hate to see her go!
Our next door neighbor, Haven is in Alexis’ class this fall. They are excited to be able to walk to school together this fall! So being the good friends they are, we definitely had to get some cute photos of them together excited for their first day.
This is their school Eel River Elementary School!
Steven and I spent the whole first day with her and had a friend watch Ben, so we could make it a special day just for her.
We took a tour around the room and found things on our scavenger hunt for the classroom. We helped Alexis play some of the letter games and write down what she wanted to learn in Kindergarten this year. She said she wanted to learn how to read and about caterpillars. She is close to reading already and pretty much already knows about caterpillars from the books she has at home, so perhaps she doesn’t care to learn anything new? I am sure she will learn so new things, but we took her word for what she wanted and helped her write it down.
In the evening we went out for bowling with Haven and her family at crazy pins. I think it was an exciting first day!
