Special Exposure Wednesday

5 Minutes for Special Needs

My first-born's first-day of school...

I just have to give some linky-love to Karen for making Kayla's shirt! Isn't it cute? It's from her I'm This Many line of shirts- thanks Karen!
On Monday Kayla became a Kindergartner...
Oops - forgot to include a note about how her day actually went! I think it went great; she was happy to see me after school and gave me a big hug. I thought being at school all day would wear her out, but haven't noticed a change in her yet! LOL She's been up at 630 the last two mornings too. This morning I watched her do the morning routine for a few minutes; looks like she's already catching on to that too. She moves her clothespin w/her name on it from 'home' to 'school', gets her pencil box off the teacher's desk, sits down at her desk, puts her nametag on, 'writes' in her notebook - if only I could spy on her all day long LOL

This is just TOOOOOO cool! Yay Kayla!

ChupieandJ'smama said...

She is just too cute! And did she get bigger over the summer, or what? I barely recognize her.

I'm glad that she is doing well in school and that the full day hasn't gotten to her. My olderst never skipped a beat last year when he went all day and I was hoping it would tire him out a bit.

Tracey said...

Ooohhh!!!! WHat a big girl! Hope she has a great year.

Christina said...

She is so beautiful Michelle! Congrats on a successful start to her year! I hope she continues to do awesome!

She is a precious doll! What an exciting time, her first day of Kindergarten! I send my "baby" to all day kindergarten next week too. I feel just as you do, if I could only stay and spy all day---I'd feel much better!

I love her outfit!

Congrats Kayla!!!

I was wondering if you'd end up out here... such big NE sport fans you are, you're already halfway here! :)

Sandra said...

Awww Little Kayla in Kindergarten :) She is just so sweet and you know I laughed when you said she doesn't seem to be affected by the whole day school. Neither does Nicholas and he's ALSO been getting up at 6:30am LOL

Lianna said...

Oh Congratulations to Kayla! The pictures are so cute -- I love Kayla's shirt!

I can't wait to read more about how it goes, Michelle!

Michelle said...

Oh my gosh, she's so grown up! The 5 shirt is so cute!

The shirt is darling, and so is she! How grown up she looks, Michelle. Praying she has a fantastic time each day.

I clicked on your blog at random on the Special Exposure site and glad I did! What a beautiful daughter you have! I hope she loved her first day of school.

Lilith Silvermane said...

Oh.. this made me tear up! What a wonderful day for you and for her! I am sure she loved it, and that its a wonderful experience.

Congrats happy Mom, she will do amazing!

jewels said...

She looks like such a big girl! And I love her shirt---that is adorable.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could be flies on the wall and watch how our kids do "without us"? I have a feeling Kayla is going to have a great time at school. :)

Rachel said...

what a big girl! she looks fabulous and happy!

Chris said...

So looking to forward to hearing all about her kindergarten adventures!

She sure looks happy to be there.

Congrats on surviving the first day of school--it can bring on such a wealth of emotions.

Heidi said...

So excited for her and you. I am telling you, you got the worst part out of the way. Mine just went to 1st grade and I shed no tears. Good for me! Today she got on the bus for the first time, still no tears. And if you know me, that's a great feat. So glad to hear she had a great day. She looks adorable in that shirt.

Tanya said...

She looks absolutely adorable! That shirt is so cute.

CrackerJacks said...

Aww, so adorable! She is such a big girl now. How the time flys!

PEA said...

Awwwww she's now in kindergarten...the years are just going by much too fast!! She looks so adorable and seems to be loving school which is a good thing! lol School doesn't resume until the first week in September here so the kids have a few more weeks of vacation time. xoxo

Carey said...

Wow, kindergarten! She looks great in her new shirt. Very pretty.

Bonita said...

Oh my gosh, that is one cute "big girl"! I heart that shirt so much and it looks precious on her. Glad to hear that she's doing well so far.

Amy said...

That's so exciting! Joe starts kindergarten in a couple of weeks. I am really nervous. We ended up putting him in mostly a "basic" classroom with some time in the gen ed class. Did we do the right thing? I guess we will find out.

Karen said...

I'll bet that was so bitter sweet, her first day of kindergarten. Micah starts in two weeks and I'll be honest, I'm not ready.

Kimmie said...

She looks so happy and adorable...love the shirt and her haircut is sweet.

I'm new to this mom thing...what's the deal with the clothespin?

Big ups to Karen. That shirt rocks!

Hey Michelle! Thanks for coming by my blog. . . I can see by all your commenters, that we share a lot in common.

I may try to send an email tomorrow, to introduce myself further, and get to know you.
