You Only Have Your FIRST Day Once

Kennedy's first official day of school was today.  Since she didn't go to preschool, today was her very FIRST day of school...ever.  She'll have more first days for every grade level, but never again will she have her first FIRST day of school.  She couldn't have been more excited.

Kennedy painted this picture, in preparation for school.  "I have to learn how to paint so pretty, momma", she said.  Afterall, there is a painting easel in her class that will surely be occupied as much as the teacher will allow.

After school, I asked Kennedy about her day.  She said "We read The Gingerbread Man and I swing-ed and I learned how to chew with my mouth NOT open...and I forgot everything else."  Sounds like a good day to me.

PS:  Thank you for the comments about the prior post.  I still haven't picked a specific story, but I have narrowed it down!
