We had a big day here today. It was Émilie's first day of kindergarten, something we've been preparing for and gearing ourselves up for for weeks now. Naturally I was the one being a worry-wort. Émilie and Phil were completely cool and collected this morning when we took her to the bus stop, and while I didn't cry, it felt very strange to just be putting my little girl onto a school bus and sending her off on a journey that I can't make with her (because, yes, I do realize I've already been to kindergarten). It felt... like a big, honkin' huge step, you know?
Of course, my camera's batteries were dead this morning. But as I was working from home today (I really wanted to be there to greet her when she stepped off the bus on her first day), I charged it all day and got a few shots of her stepping OFF the bus. We can stage proper "getting on the bus" pictures next week, heh.
The good news is that she had a blast, came back singing new songs (in English!) and talking about her "new best friend for her entire life" (aka the girl who sits next to her in class). So yup, I'd say we're definitely on our way.
In lieu of knitting content, I'll leave you with this picture of her school bag. When I saw it at the school supply store, I just had to buy it, right? I don't know why it didn't occur to me to blog about it until now!Happy Knitting Everyone!
