First Day of School

Well, now that she is five, she goes off to school. Actually, she went last week, but I'm a little late. Has anyone else been noticing my trend of lateness lately? She went in for one day and then we flew to Seattle, WA for a week, thus she missed four days.

Tabitha LOVES school. She really thinks its ok to enjoy being away from me. I don't know what's wrong with her! Truthfully, we are also happy with her school. It's right across the street from our house and they have a wonderful program. When she first got home we asked her how it was and she said, "I don't remember." We didn't pressure her, because we knew the details would come later.

Can you believe they get their own lockers in kindergarten? I know she doesn't look thrilled in any of these pictures. She's a little nervous, but that quickly dissipates after the camera is gone. She loves bringing in a packed lunch. She corrected me today. She said it's not called a lunch box, it's a lunch bag. I apologized for being so old school.

My favorite part of her description of her day was when she told me with much excitement, that they had recess. She was practically jumping up and down to tell me. Then she says, "What is recess, anyway?"

Ya gotta love that kid. Welcome to the real world, Tabitha.

"Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful, but his delight is in the law of the Lord and in His law he meditates day and night." Psalm 1: 1,2

I can't believe she is in school already! You must miss her during the day. It's nice the school is right across the road from you. For some reason it terrifies me to put Nicholas on a school bus and send him off for the day. But I will cross that bridge when I come to it I guess.

Aww! She is too cute. I remember how exciting it was starting a new school year, with all new stuff and everything in the classroom new and interesting. :)

I like that psalm you put at the end of the blog.

"Welcome to the real world, Tabitha."

Neither Willik nor Phoenix ever remember what happened during the day. Willik said, "I LOVED it!!" Well, what did you do today? "I don't remember. Oh yeah! We had RECESS!"

She is looking very grown up.
Yeah, I can't believe how quickly it goes sometimes.
I know that the boys say similar things. Phoenix told me there was a birthday party today, but he couldn't remember who the party was for.
