First Day of Kindergarten

It was inevitable. I always knew that someday, my baby was going to become a "big kid" and start Kindergarten. Well, that someday has arrived! Here she is about to start her new adventures.

All dressed up and ready for Kindergarten!

We live close enough to the school that we can walk - yay! My sweet neighbor Cathy was walking with her kids behind us and snapped this cute picture. Thanks Cathy!

Vanessa and Daddy pose for a quick shot before going inside. I was thankful that Paul was able to take some time from work and join us for the first day of school. Vanessa LOVES her Daddy.

Outside her classroom. About to start the fun!

Chick-fil-A provided a "Boo-Hoo, Yahoo!" breakfast for all the Kindergarten parents. 

It was a bittersweet day for us. Vanessa has grown into a very happy and independent five-year old and I'm grateful for that. But she will ALWAYS be my baby!

She is beautiful, I remember that first day as well. Think of all the new scrapbook ideas you will have now that she is in school! I am trying to look at it that way with mine starting high school. Mine wants to join FFA, heavens...I hope I will not be taking pictures of a cow or something huge!
