Madilyn and Alyssa have started school. Their first day was August 3rd. Madie was so excited to start 2nd grade. Aly on the other hand was nervous to start Kindergarten. She was excited that morning....but when we got to the school she started to cry just a little. She told me that she wanted to go home and did not want me to leave her. I have to admit that it was a little scary. The place was packed with parents all taking their children to their classrooms. I took Aly to her classroom and we found her desk and met her new teacher, Mrs. Cole. I showed her some things around the room and she started to calm down a bit. I stayed for only a few minutes and then when I told her that I had to go she said OK. When I left the classroom I looked back and she was at her desk playing with a puzzle. I had to hold back my tears as I walked out. I just can't believe that Aly is old enough to start school. When I picked them up that day, they both said that they loved school!
