First Day of Kindergarten

“Kindergarten is cool!” – DAGNY, after the first day of school. Phew.

The time has arrived for our little girl to be off to school.  Sigh.

Thankfully, the transition from daycare couldn’t have gone any smoother then it has gone for her.

For Me? Not so much. One of the hardest parts for me has been putting her on the bus. Up until now it has been me who took Dagny every morning to daycare.  Having that role taken away for me is an adjustment.  But, I think the hardest adjustment has been being out of the loop. We have no idea what / how she is doing at school.  We had been spoiled at Doodle Bugs.  They had cameras in classrooms and around the center. I was able to login and check in on her.  Most importantly when I would pick her up I talked with her teachers and got a daily report. This is no longer the case. And Dagny is not sharing much. I hope that will change with time, but for now it’s tough going from know to not knowing.

Because our school district is half days, the bus takes her to a wrap around program afterward. She seems to be adjusting well to her new schedule. We can’t be happier and more proud of our little girl.

Tuesday, Craig and I, took our little girl to Kindergarten.  Here she is with the sign that she hand wrote (Craig’s idea).

The following day Dagny started taking the school bus to school.  Here she is waiting.  She was so excited.
