I can't believe this day actually came!
The day started at 6:30am for Audrey! School starts at 7:55am!!!
I thought today would be a day for unlimited pictures, so I brought it in to her room when I woke her up. I said, "Audrey, say Kindergarten!" She replied, "Mom, I don't think it'd be a good idea to take a picture right now because I won't be smiling - it's so bright!"

On her way into the Kindergarten room door - and so happy!

After she found her name and said hi to Mrs. Moss she was on her way to her desk.

There were several different centers the kids got to choose to play at while the other kids were finding their seats. Of course my little Libra picked the art center!
Then, the teacher read "The Kissing Hand" to the kids and parents. Audrey was very talkative and social as always. She told the teacher that she was so excited about school that she could hardly sleep last night. She also made sure Mrs. Moss knew that we had borrowed that book from the library before. Also, when Mrs. Moss read about the little raccoon being nervous about school, she said that she, herself sure wasn't. And, when the book was over and her teacher said that she had Hershey's kisses for the children to give to their parent's Audrey said "oh, those are my daddy's favorite!"

After school we went to the zoo, we love those otters!

Then we were able to go to the Idaho Falls Chuckars baseball game. One of Kev's previous co-workers gave us all free tickets!

Audrey enjoyed cheering, clapping and stomping the best.

Kyle was fascinated with the Chuckars bird mascot - and even got to give him a high five!

Kaden was mesmerized with it all!

I know, I can't believe that she is old enough to go to kindergarten. Glad she was excited.

It's also great to see pictures of you, Annette. You look terrific!

How was dropping your first baby off at kindergarten? I think I will be both excited and sad. It looks like Audry was just so happy to be there. Lets just hope that is always the case.

Audrey has been ready for so long, and it was wonderful when the day finally came. We were all excited to see her off; and, yes, Annette got a little teary, etc. After four days, I'm sure everyone in Audrey's kindergarten class knows her life's story by now. Not too shy that little girl. We love her very much. And Kyle and Kaden had a fun day and night too.
Love, MOM
