Today was our first event at Flanna's new elementary school. She starts kindergarten (kindergarten!) on Wednesday. Today, the PTA hosted a popsicle party, complete with a gigantic water slide. Flanna got to see a few old friends from PreK, and two of her good friends will even be in her class this year! It was a little surreal to sign up for the PTA, as the mom of a kindergartener. I mean, I can still remember actually being a kindergartener myself.
But Flanna is ready, and she's going to love kindergarten, I'm sure of it. As I tucked her into bed tonight, I was telling her how much I enjoyed our day, going to church together as a family, having lunch together, getting to see her new school--and she said, "Wait, church was yesterday, mom!" I tried to correct her, telling her that, no, all that was in this one--albeit long-- day. But she was so funny, and was adamant that there was no way we did all that in one day. Hah! Even Flanna agrees--the days are long!
But the years, the years are short.
