This fall has been a whirlwind of change, with Rylan moving up to preschool and Ava starting Kindergarten at our neighborhood elementary school. (And the fact that I am so behind at blogging right now is directly attributable to this adjustment.)
Rylan started first, and he looked like such a big boy on his first day!
Before Ava's first day, we got a chance to meet her teacher and classmates at a fun "Meet the Teacher" night complete with sno cones. I think this really helped with the transition.
On the first day of kindergarten, Ava was so ready to go! I wasn't nearly as emotional as I thought I would be (her last official day of preschool a couple weeks prior was much tougher on me for some reason), and the only rough part was the earlier wake-up call.
Our sweet kindergartener...
Ava was all-smiles when I picked her up that day, and she has continued to have such a wonderful first few months of kindergarten. We couldn't be happier with the school, and she has made so many wonderful new friends (the parents are so fun as well). It is a truly special community.
