Ada’s First Day of Kindergarten

Last night while I was putting Ada to bed, I was telling her all the fun things that she’ll get to do in kindergarten, and she seemed pretty excited. A couple of weeks ago she was quite scared about it, but since Open House a week ago, she’s been okay with the idea of going after seeing her room and meeting her teacher, who is the same teacher that Liam had.

But as soon as the kids’ alarm went off at 7:00 this morning, she began to cry. She got out of bed and sat on Helena’s bed without getting dressed, but calmed down quickly. Eventually she got dressed and went downstairs; after that she was good.

Once we were at school, Liam began to show her the toys and she just sat down and began to play while completely ignoring the rest of us, which is quite common around the house. I had to leave after that to take Helena to school, but according to Liam, she was good all morning.

After she got off the bus, she said that she liked her class and that she’d have no problems going tomorrow. We’ll have to see about that!

Ada's morning tears.

Ada finds a half chewed tomato left by some animal. Arguments ensue about other possible tomato sightings.

They all look to be the winner in spotting the next half eaten tomato contest.

All jammed in the back.

Dad is being funny with the camera now...taking pictures of every little step Ada takes. Girls find it humourous, though

Like Ada's locker

And the chart Ada has to sign in at. I told her that I named her Ada so that she would be at the top of the list.

Ada wants to show everyone what she did. And she doesn't want to wait to do it.

Liam was getting tired, so he goes into the shade for a rest. Then Ada goes to join him.
