Quinnlyn started school yesterday. She's a big first grader which means FULL DAY for us!!! Yipee!! I am still trying to figure out how she grows up so quickly.
Having her go to First grade was harder on me than kindergarten. Our school district has money issues so there are no buses this year and that has made for a very chaotic drop-off & pick-up situation. Kids don't walk to school out here (no sidewalks) so there are hundreds of cars trying to get there kids to school. We weren't allowed to walk our kids to their classroom the first day (although we did go a few days before so she could see where to go) and it just made me sad. Here she is in a big school & she didn't really remember how to get to her classroom and all I could do was tell her to 'Go right & then right again & then look for your teachers name on the door'.
She did great though. Made it to her classroom, made it through lunch, & made a few new friends. I love that she is confident & not afraid to try new things....something that I NEVER was until I was out of high school. She is my favorite 6 year old!!
