the first day (only 2.5 weeks late)


the first day of kindergarten (as compared to the first day of pre-K).  mommy and daddy both took you.  you were ready.  you’ve been talking about it for months.

you were reunited with some of your friends that were in the other class last year, and that thrilled you, too.

you’ve been doing so well.  you counted past 100 today.  i didn’t know you could do that.  you wrote a note that says “i love you, mommy and daddy and n.”  swoon.  you wrote all of your alphabet upper and lowercase and you keep writing these things you call macrons and breves (and it just took me 10 minutes to find those words).  mommy doesn’t remember learning this, that’s for sure.

iz, mommy and daddy are so proud of you and can’t wait to see what the rest of the year brings.

  1. Izzy, we are so proud of you! You sure are smart!! I have no idea what those words mean your mommy says you write…but keep up the good work! Aunt Em & Uncle David love you!

    1. They are the symbols that go over vowels to show if they are short or long!

    1. She’s totally a sponge…to the good (and the bad) things her friends sometimes say.

  8. That’s awesome! Way to go sweet girl!

  9. grandma Pat says:

    What a big girl. I can’t believe she counted to 100. I also looked up macrons and breves, short and long vowels. Amazing they are teaching that in kindergarten. I love you and miss you all.

  10. I can’t believe she’s a kindergartner. Aaaaaaaagh! But she’s a darn cute one, and very smart too!

  11. Mr Serious says:

    She read the first 20 pages of “Go Dog Go!” with no help tonight

  12. Isabelle you are so grown up and beautiful!
    I am so proud of you at how smart you are with your counting and writing.
    (And mommy, I don’t know what those words mean either… I think the macron is the line over the vowel, but have no idea what the other one is.)
    I’m sure she will do just marvelously having such supportive parents like you.

    1. It’s the other symbol over vowels…one is for short and one is for long!

      Thank you! I know first hand how important it is to have supportive and involved parents at home.

  13. What an adorable first day of school photos. I love comparing them each year too. We’ve had several teachers take photos on the first day and the last day as a gift to the parents. It is amazing how 9 months can change them so!

    1. I don’t think I even thought to take a picture on the last day of school..that would have been huge!
