It has happened. Kindergarten has begun. That ball is rolling. I know in my last post, I was a puddle of mommy emotion, but since school has begun and we have two days under our belt, I'm much better.
This is a picture of the Tiny Teen just moments before she entered the front doors of her new school. As you can see, she was 100% happy and ready to go.
After choking out the words "good-bye," my husband, the Texas Tornado, and I left school wondering what on earth to do with ourselves. We did what anyone with nothing to do does...we went wandering around Target.
What is it about Target that can be so cathartic? I wandered about and picked up plenty of "odds and ends" like only you can there. We spent the rest of the day busying ourselves. The three of us went to lunch, hung out, and just wondered how the day was going.
The official report, she loves everything about kindergarten! Whew! What a relief. I figured she would, but you just never know. She was all smiles, just like in the picture above, when I picked her up. Granted her smile was a very tired one.
After stopping by Daddy's work to give him the full report, the Tiny Teen was greeted with some "back to school" cookies.
I used the funfetti cookie recipe from back in April, but I tried to use cookie cutters with it. Clearly, that didn't turn out as fantastically as I had hoped. Nonetheless, the Tiny Teen was just happy to get some funfetti cookies!
After I realized that my letter cookies weren't coming out as I had hoped, I switched to just good ol' regular cookies. Much less effort and actually, they were tastier.
