First Day of Kindergarten!!!

First Day of Kindergarten in Brevig Mission, Alaska

This is my daughter on her first day of Kindergarten, holding her handwritten name.

I plan to take a similar photo with Kaitlyn every year on the first day of school (hey Pinterest!  Thanks for the inspiration!).

I told her to write her name really big.  She took me seriously.

I am most proud that she is wearing Chacos.  I am least proud of the job I did putting her hair into a ponytail (will it ever get easier?).


She didn't allow the photoshoot to end until I'd taken a silly picture.

We're entering a world of homework, reading groups, and eating breakfast at the big school.

I have very clear memories from Kindergarten, and I wonder what Kaitlyn will remember from this year of her life.  I hope it's more the two of us gluing things in our art journals and less the frantic search for matching socks in the morning.  I hope it's more of the snuggles and less of me begging Levi to put pants on.

Only time will tell.

    Is it sad that the first thing I noticed about this photos (besides her adorable HUGE name) was her Chacos? Sweet girl…
