    Wow, this is a big year for you – one starting kindergarten, the other starting preschool. It’s so exciting and bittersweet all at the same time, isn’t it?

    I hope that the beginning of kindergarten has been (will be?) just as smooth as the beginning of preschool!

      Yes Amber, it is such a big year… and I’m feeling it all this week! It’s been rather emotional.

      Julia has started Kindergarten too and I’ll be posting pictures soon. It also has been a perfect transition so far. All the tears are on my end.

    That is great that their first day went so well. My daughter has been going to daycare since she was once, so I’m sure going to preschool will be an early transition for her. It is good that the two girls have each other. That always make things easier.

      Yes Chanel, daycare would make the transition to preschool so much easier!

    They look like they are loving being at preschool. My kids have never cried heading off to school. They always loved going…until they get into high school. Actually, my 2nd daughter isn’t even going to school her senior year. She’s taking college classes online instead! My oldest DD did the same thing and went into her first year of college w/ enough credits to be considered 1/2 way through her sophomore year! The time seems to speed up as they enter school!

      Wow Mimi… you’ve clearly got bright girls. That’s wonderful that they’re such fantastic independent learners.

    Great! ….some times I wonder… Is it really the children that “don’t like school”… or it’s just the “fear of mom” that wants simply to “protect” children and wants them to have fun all the time? My son went to preschool and first day I felt “betrayed” that he didn’t cry and was SOOOO happy…!! Moms are funny sometimes eh?

      That’s true Elena, sometimes when our children seem so happily independent it makes us feel a little “replaced”. But since I had such troubles myself with separation anxiety from my mom, I’m always so relieved when my girls can feel confident without me.

    They are so cute…and so grown-up too! I especially love that 1st photo – wide smiles all around.
