Kindergarten begins!

Big day for Team Smith…


Livie’s toothelss grin was a bit strained this morning—her excitement gave way to a tiny bit of nervousness this morning, I think.


But, she headed up the hill…


…and posed for her first of many photos like this.


Inside, we waited a bit to enter her room.


She meet up with Cooper, another Montessori classmate, and Riley, a friend from ballet. Two ready-made friends in a class of 20 is a pretty good start.


And, of course, another friend stowed away…


New cubby…


And a new teacher.

Good luck, Livie!

    I love the outfit!!! I am very happy that she has a few friends to get started – although, I doubt she will have any trouble making new friends!

    I love the outfit– I’m not surprised the back pack is purple– I’m so happy Olivia could take her “friend” with her to school. (He looked a lot cleaner than last time I saw him–how did you mange that???) Good Luck, Olivia on your kindergarten adventure!

  4. The photo of the bunny in the backpack captures all the stress of being a kid, but suggests the love and support she takes with her everywhere when she’s not at home. Great photo essay of a very important day in her life. Again, I almost feel like I tagged along. That’s good blogging, writing and photography!
