First Day

We woke up to pouring rain this morning.  Sophie's excitement over the first day, however, was undeterred.
She came out of her room earlier than ever and bounded through her breakfast and morning routine.  The rain slowed a bit as we headed to the bus stop.  Our bus driver is the same one from last year, so she was right on time at 8:40 am.
~*~
Sophie really didn't want to stop for a photo, so this one was all I could manage.  The driver asked if Sophie was in kindergarten, and when I said yes, she had her sit in the first seat.  I heard a little voice from the middle of the bus yell, "Hi Sophie!"... one of her neighbor acquaintances.  Sophie turned to the friend and waved, the driver closed the door, and like that, they were gone.
~*~
I'm going to try to keep myself busy today- anxiously waiting to hear how the first day went.  I was so happy to see my baby head off on her new adventure without fear or trepidation.  May it always be so.

Teary eyed here, Jennie. Tomorrow is our first day--I'm in a strange mood; it's always that way for me before school starts.

My kids will be a bit nervous tomorrow, but I know they'll move along quickly with the morning routine. I'm sure I will walk back into my house and cry.
