Last year was her first year in a new school, in a new city & state... but this year, part of her excitement was about seeing all her friends from Kindergarten. Orientation was last week, so she knew exactly where her desk was and who would be sitting beside her.
This year was different for me as well. Last year I remember sitting next to her at her sweet little table and trying not to cry as I noticed how nervous she was about this new school. This year - me and some of my favorite Mom-friends stood at the back of the room - snapping pictures and catching up ourselves. While we watched our daughters lavishly pass out hugs and giggles as they did the same - catching up and showing off their new school supplies and being giddy about how they had the same school box!
I'm now at home with my sweet little 3 year-old son, back on the potty training schedule and settling back into our "school normal" - as Jordan put it this weekend.
I wouldn't be the proud Mommy that I am if I didn't share with you what our morning looked like...
Jordan before we left for school
Jordan with Daddy - before school & work (notice JP sneaking in the background)
Jordan with Mommy - before getting in the car to leave
Jordan reuniting with her Kindergarten friends!
Jordan at her new desk! (notice the card that reads, "God loves Jordan")
One final Good-Bye hug from her little brother...
I can't wait to see what this year is going to bring us all! Congratulations Jordan!
