First Day of Kindergarten

It's hard to believe that our little princess is starting Kindergarten. Kylie was pretty excited as we had visited her new school a week before and we all loved it. Not only are we delighted with the facilities and resources the new school has to offer but we are also pretty thrilled with her new teacher Ms. Shave. Kylie has to get up extra early as the school is a bit far and classes start earlier than what she was used to in Pre-School.

Kylie gets to ride in the same bus as our friend Hannah who was also our sitter for a while and a new friend who just arrived here from the states. They are both in the pics below. There are two other girls from our condo who are also enrolled in the same school and are a bit older. My biggest concern was that Kylie would be traveling in a school bus with older children. I don't believe this is common in the states. This is no longer a concern as these trips are very well organized with "Auntie's" in the bus to help children get into their seats, assist with seat belts and everything seems to be pretty calm.

Kylie was wearing her PE uniform as this is what was on the schedule for her 1st day. Judging by the pictures that the school posted, Kylie and her new classmates had a blast.

So on her first day of Kindergarten, Kylie was also celebrating her 5th birthday and had a loose tooth all at the same time. I wish time would stand still for just a moment because everything seems to be happening so fast.
