Back to School!

Today is the start a whole new world for us! I hope to be able to get back to blogging too! Today Kaitlyn started Kindergarten, and I honestly felt like I was leaving half my heart at school. It ached to leave her behind ALL DAY! Thats right shes in all day kinder! 8:30am- 2:45pm! As I was fighting off tears as we were getting kicked out of class the teacher hands us all notes. Once I got Kassel in the car and said goodbye to Ken I sat down in the car with my eyes full of tears and began to read the teachers note and I lost it! I started crying! Here's the note we received:

The First Day of School

I gave a little wink and smile
As you entered my room today.
For I know how hard it is to leave
And know your child must stay.
You've been with him for five years now
And have been a loving guide,
But now, alas, the time has come
To leave him by my side.
Just know that as you drive away
And tears down your cheeks my flow
I'll love him as I would my own
And help him learn and grow.
For as a parent, I too know
How quickly the years pass.
So please put your mind at ease
And cry those tears no more
For I will love him and take him in
When you leave him at my door.
It is now time to get ready to get her and listen to her stories of the day. Hope she had a great one or my heart will break again. Pictures soon to come!
