Officially a School Girl...

Well, it is official, Claire started Kindergarten this morning! I am a complete wreck and that was one the hardest things I have ever done, dropping her off at school!!!! She did so well and we are so proud of her! She went right in and was just fine telling me and Shane "Bye!". I was practically running to the car so I could get there and bawl my eyes out!! This is waaaaaaaaay too much for a 9 month pregnant woman to handle! I know she is going to have so much fun today and this is such a huge day is her life so far, but I cannot wait until 2:45 to go pick her up=)!! We went as a family this morning to drop her off and of course I got tons of pictures...
Walking out the door this morning...Owen and Daddy leading the way...Cheesy grin - so excited!Mama and Claire
Mama, Claire and ODaddy and ClaireDaddy, Claire and OClaire and O =)Walking in the halls...
Walking into the classroom...Putting our things away in our cubby...

Sitting at her seat...such a big girl!Claire and her fabulous teacher Mrs. Muller!Hugs for Daddy...break.my.heart.Hugs for brother...Me and Owen are just hanging out, not knowing what to do with ourselves! The house is so quiet, but I am sure it will be back to usual this afternoon when Clairebear comes home and we hear all about her first day!!! Have a great day!!!!

WE MADE IT THROUGH! Sounds like we both barely made it, but we did! This morning is dragging by...but 2:45 will be here before we know it! I was thinking about you this morning as I knew we were going to be the same "cry baby" boat! :) But, I don't have an excuse of being preggo! :)

Claire is a doll...can't wait to "hear" about her day!

Yep, today is the first of many adventures for Claire. It's great that she has such supportive parents that will be there every step of the way. I got emotional reading that. I can't imagine what you went through.

I guess Owen doesn't know what to do with himself since Claire is gone during the day. I'm sure he'll find something to get into... :)

Bless your heart, Rachel! I remember Kirby's first day of kindergarten and I was 8 months prego...those hormones are hard to control! I hope today didn't drag too long for you and Owen. Did he miss his big sis? And I'll be thinking about you when you go to have baby Bree here in a few! *HUGS!*
