Her clothes had been picked out the night before, by her of course, and everything was set to go smoothly.
And it did, it did go smoothly.
It was announced that no tear would be shed (by her, I wasn’t about to make a promise I couldn’t keep). True to her word, there were no tears (from her because I created a few, but only when she couldn’t see me anymore).
This beautiful child of mine walked into her new class full of all new people and she didn’t look back, she just kept moving forward and it was up to me to let her.
I’m so proud of her for being courageous. I know she was being courageous because when I look at this photo of her, I see the uncertainty in her eyes. Her eyes gave her away, but the rest of her never let on.
My eldest, Put Pie, started kindergarten this Monday and we’ve all grown up quite a bit because of it. We got the lovely free printable “Primer Día de Kinder” sign from my buddy Pattie at Living Mi Vida Loca, you can get an English version from the wonderful Jill at Popsicle Blog. Both English and Spanish signs are available in just about every grade you can think of.
