Stella's First Day of Kindergarten

As Rapunzel would say, "This is a very big day, Pascal!" It's Stella's first day of kindergarten!  I dug out my signs that I printed last year when she started pre-K and couldn't resist snapping a picture of those last few sweet minutes of slumber as a carefree kid before her first day of big school...
Luckily I left my 4th of July swag up and it conveniently matches her school colors (Go Eagles!) so it made the perfect backdrop for her picture in her uniform.  Izzy was starting school that day, too, and she wears a uniform even though she is homeschooled...
How excited is she?
We had a disagreement over her hair.  I wanted her to wear a gigantic navy and red bow and she wanted to wear this.  I relented.  It was her first day after all, not mine...
I couldn't decide which picture was the cutest so I am blogging them ALL! Enjoy, Grandparents!





We dropped off Watts and Cille first so we could focus on the big girl...
It was Damon's idea for us to take turns walking and taking pictures...
A kiss goodbye from Daddy...
Stella and her sweet teacher.  When I asked who her favorite person in her class was she said, "Counting the teacher or not counting the teacher?"  Counting the teacher, it is the teacher.  She now pretends to be Ms. Chelette all the time at home...
In her desk with bellwork already there!  Way to go, Ms. Chelette!  You teach from bell to bell, girl!
Daddy used his cell phone to snap this one of me saying goodbye.  I was smiling for Stella but my heart was breaking...
