Maddie's Second First Day of School...

Getting ready to go...

I can't believe it's that time again already...Time to bid summertime goodbye, and say "hello" to a brand new school year, but alas it is time! All good things must come to an end...

This morning marked the beginning of Madison's first day of her second year of school. Her mama says that Madison woke up at 5:30 in the morning--ready to go! By the time I ambled over to their house a few minutes after seven, Madison was dressed and had already eaten breakfast!

We took a few pictures, then loaded up in the car, bound for Maddie's first day of "Busy Beavers". I really appreciate my daughter giving me the opportunity to "tag along". I enjoy watching Madison experience new things, and like to think that I can be of some support to my daughter.  Sometimes it's very difficult to watch our little ones spread their wings...especially for us "stay-at-home moms".

By the time we arrived at school, several other children were already there. Madison quickly hung up her book bag, then went to explore her new school. She barely gave us a second glance. I am so thankful! It made the morning much easier. The tears being shed this morning didn't belong to Madison...

I can hardly wait to hear about Madison's exciting first day of her new school. I hope she enjoys herself, and learns lots of new and exciting things. As for Maddie's mom, I think she will enjoy her mornings of freedom--once she gets used to her quiet house!

Oh what a sweet story. I remember our daughter going off to school and she looked back and said "OK You can go home now" and took off to play. Didn't know if I was crying because she didn't miss me or because I was going to miss her? They grow up so fast.
