2nd Day of School... First bee sting

Today we got a call 20 minutes before school was out from Gracen's teacher telling us that she had been stung by a bee. If you know Gracen, this immediately sent me into Mommy MODE. I was out the door and half way down the block before I even heard if she was OK. Not only was she OK, but she never even cried!

When I got to the school she was waiting in the office for me with her little ice pack and she is so proud of herself. When I asked her if she was OK, she said "Sure Mommy, they have a little hospital in the Principal's office." Which made me laugh and I knew then she was just fine. She also told me that while she was waiting for me to pick her up, she told the office staff all her bee sting stories. The story of when Jamie was stung at the beach this summer and best of all... when I got stung "in the bottom." Told her that I got stung in the bottom of the leg not "in my bottom" and then she says "Well, Mommy that is OK they probably weren't listening to me anyway."

I love this kid!!! She wanted to make a little video to share the experience. The link is below...

First Day of School....

Ready for Kindergarten!

We filled out paperwork, got our supplies, packed our lunch box and backpack, picked out an outfit, got a great night of sleep, and we were ready for our first day of school. Our new teacher is so sweet and G had a great day. My favorite part was seeing her walk home on the path... It is so hard to see her grow up, but I am a one proud Momma!

A moment I will never forget!
