Ellie started Kindergarten this last week and despite the moments of choking back the tears I was honestly excited for her. She is so ready and she has loved every minute of it. She loves her teacher..cause she is "totally cool" and her new favorite thing is helping me pack her lunch in the morning. I really do feel like I am entering a new phase in my mommy life. I have never had more fun shopping than I did buying school clothes for her. Stupidly,I had to get the nicest stuff for her school supplies, decorated # 2 pencils, name brand crayons and markers...come to find out (from all of the veteran mothers) that all of the brand new beautiful school supplies I just bought get dumped into big community use buckets for anyone and everyone to use.

She hopefully has made a new friend with a sweet little Spanish girl she sits next to named Lizbet. I think the whole thing is adorable!!

*not so happy about the 40 pictures I made her take, hence the faces..

Congrats on your new mommy phase. It is very exciting. Funny thing...Ellie's friend Lizbet was in Tarryn's preschool class. Tarryn really enjoyed her too.
