Oh, Brandi. It makes me feel sad just to think about it. Transitions are hard, hard, hard. I forgot when you said she'd be going, and Jonas goes, too, right? Is she excited?

Brandi said...

Jonas went last year, but he's not this year. We're going to try homeschool for a year with him.

it's a little tricky, but i'm trying to help both of them be excited about what they're doing, and neither feel like they got the worse option.

betty just goes 6 hours a week, so it's not much at all. but it feels sad, because her days of snuggling up to me all day seem like yesterday!

Awww she looks so adorable! So I never thought I would say this until I was actually a parent, but kids grow up so fast! My little sister started kindergarten last Thursday :[ It seems like my parents were just telling me my mom was having a baby and I was staring at them because that was impossible. Now she's a big girl!

who is that big girl? i mean really...she looks so big!

i think dylin has that same backpack. since, as you know, homeschoolers really need backpacks.

She's so big! Did she have a good day?

Brandi said...

she did great again today! her teacher described her as "very easy-going," which sounds about right.
