First day of Kindergarten // Back to School 2016

I just got all the feels making a new "Elementary school" label for this post. Sigh. 
Well, it's happened. That First Day of Kindergarten has come and gone. Kinsey has been in school exactly 8 days (weird, right?! She started on a Wednesday and was sick last Monday, but more on that later.) My little girl is not so little anymore.
Interview printable here.
To prepare for this monumental occasion I had the first week's worth of school clothes picked out and lunches packed the night before. To say I went crazy and labeled everything is not an understatement. These Label Daddy labels are awesome! They come in all different sizes (these are the large) are customizable and can be laminated for extra protection. You can get yourself some labels and save 20% off using this code: USFAMILY20 at checkout. Good prep is thee only way, amen?!
Kinsey is attending the elementary school that I, Brian, my brother and my mom went to so the fact that the family tradition lives on completely tickles me. Being back on the campus brings back so many fond memories and I'm just so excited Kinsey will get to experience them for herself!
For the most part she loves school (we are all still adjusting to those early morning wake-up calls.) She talks about making three new friends (though she only remembers two of their names haha), we all like her teacher and she absolutely loves the playground and recess. What I wasn't thrilled about was all the germs and those got us after only three days. THREE days. We may have set some sort of record with that. But I know everyone appreciated us keeping her home and not spreading them around.
The transition period has gone more smoothly than I had anticipated, praise hands. We are looking forward to a fantastic year: "Soaring high with Falcon pride!"

  4. I know I'll be crying in the car after I drop Ez off for kindergarten, but I'm looking forward to all those fun school activities. How fun that she's going to your school. I wonder if any of the same teachers are around?

  14. All.the.feels. Friend, I so know how you are feeling right now. Kindergarten was HARD on my mama heart. Kinsey will do great, will make so many new friends and will learn so much! I am excited for her. I know without a doubt she was the cutest and most stylish in her class. And I think it’s so cool she is attending the same school you all went to! How’s that for nostalgia? Love! Hope that sweet girl has the best year!
