Brinley ready to get into school!
Brinley, Dad and Halle walking into school
Today was the first day of school for Brinley. I knew that I was going to be a little sad with her being gone all day! I thought that sending her to first grade was a lot harder then sending her to Kindergarten. I guess it was just because she had already been going to preschool for two years and I was used to her being gone for a few hours already, but now ALL DAY! I thought that Halle was going to have a hard time entertaining herself, but lucky for her she had a cousin here that she LOVES so they played ALL day. Brinley is so straight to the line. She will not do anything that she thinks is not supposed to be done (mostly when someone else has told her though). Her teacher sent a note telling them to bring a pencil box. She said they could bring crayons and a pencil if they wanted but they didn't need to because she had all these supplies for them. She said that she did not want them bringing a lot of other items from home because she didn't want them to get distracted and all they really needed was a pencil box. Well I couldn't remember what was on the note when we were at the store choosing school supplies and I put a pair of scissors and crayons. She made me take them out because the teacher said, "only a pencil box, mom." She is so funny! She never will waiver from what her teachers tell her to do, and she is so afraid of getting in trouble. Nate and I took her to school and I think she was ready for us to go. We got there 20 minutes early, because she insisted on being there at the same time as the school bus. I wanted to take a picture in front of the school. She did it unwillingly and as soon as the camera clicked she had to hurry off to her class. After we had helped her find her seat, I could tell she wanted us to go. It is sad seeing her all grown up and not needing me so much anymore. She has always been very clingy to me since she was a few months old. It used to get a little old, but now I think I want some of that back. They just grow too fast and I don't like it!
