There sHe Goes

Anna's off to Kindergarten. She was rolling her eyes at me as I asked her to pose for one more picture. I didn't think I would cry, but I'll admit it-I got a bit choked up when she got on that bus and gave me a little wave. So I did what every Kindergarten mother wants to do, Dylan and I hoped in the car and went to her school. We got out really sneaky, hid behind a parked car and watched her skip into her K classroom.
It reminded me off the day my parents dropped me off at Ricks college. (Okay-make that 3 days they dropped me off) After several days of stalling to leave we were standing in a Maverick parking lot as my dad tried to think of one more thing I might need. I was nervous and scared but so excited to just get on with it. I finally said to my parents 'I think you guys need to just leave' My dad turned and walked clear across the parking lot to throw a scrap of paper in the dumpster. He stood there for a second, walked back and said 'Alright -lets go'
So I understood when Anna wanted me to just leave so she could ride the bus by herself. I was the one crying by the dumpster (or mailbox ) :) After a few days of me picking her up in the afternoon she said 'Why can't I just ride the bus home like everyone else?' Miss Independent now rides the bus both ways :)

When does riding the bus make you a loser? I hope never. And both ways to school. How fun. At least in K it's still fun!

PS The whole preschool thing with Jack is a lot of tears. So FUN you should join in!
