NJ starts school (August 19, 2008)

After five years of waiting this dreaded year arrived when NJ was to start school but, the State of Arkansas changed the birthday cutoff and NJ was 7 days shy of being old enough to start Kindergarten. I thought long and hard and wanted her to do something more than MDO this year. I found the most wonderful school for her, it is a Church of Christ Montesory school. On August 19th we woke up at 5:30 am and got ready to make the long trip to Little Rock. Nervous NJ was a little scared but absolutly loved her new school. A couple of her friends from MDO (Kaylee and Camille) also go to her new school which really helped her get over being nervous.

I have also enjoyed taking her to school. The cars line up and all the kids hangout the window and yell at each other. The teachers pick the girls up and bring them back to their car so moms don't have to get out in the rain or the heat.

I hope the rest of the year is as great as this first month!!!
