Kindergarten Camp

Wednesday AP got to experience a little bit of kindergarten. Her school had assessment days before they divide the classes up. As we were getting ready that morning, she said "I just keep telling myself 'Don't pick your nose or they won't be your friend!' " Haha! That's so much pressure!
She walked in like she owned the place, though, so I'm pretty sure she wasn't nervous. When I picked her up she came out and said, "I'm smart now, I don't need to go back" :)

And just a reflection on parenting the 2nd child:
The first day that C entered the school building as a kindergartner (who am I kidding, the first 20 days) he had on a brand new outfit, probably freshly pressed! On this, AP's first day, I let her choose. I did make sure it was clean, but her criteria for the shirt she chose was that it made her think of her best friend. Sounded perfect to me! It didn't even cross my mind to put on a new outfit until I saw some kiddos there who no doubt had on brand new duds from head to toe. Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with new outfits, we even have a few. I just thought the difference in my own attitude and parenting was amusing.

Are you kidding? No one could have looked cuter than she did.

She's adorable and I have no doubt she will own the place :)
I bought into the "nice clothes" thing too. Bralen wore a church outfit. I was praying for no signs of glue, marker or scissor practice when I picked him up.

I tried that line, "I'm smart now and don't have to go back."

Didn't work for me. Doubt it'll work for her.
