1st Day of Kindergarten
I cannot believe this day is here. I held Avery's hand for the entire 15 minute walk to school, talking about things we saw, about how she was feeling, about how much we loved her. It was very surreal. And she did great! She loved playing on the playground before the bell rang. And when that bell rung she ran like the wind to her backpack, standing in line with the other kids to wait to go into her classroom.
I prayed for months that her teacher would be Mrs. Lamb... and as Avery would say it, "Jesus said YES!" He sure did. She is awesome!!!! Avery and I made her some "School Pencil Flowers" (pictured below).
So here is our precious Avery Joy on her first day of kindergarten... August 22, 2012.
P.S. When we picked her up from school, she was exhausted!
