Today, Norah starts her first day of Kindergarten.
I'm nervous.
It's a new area, we don't know a single person, her school is 20 minutes from home because it's a better school and in Florida, for whatever reason, you have the option to choose your school so your children aren't forced to go to a horrible school.  The school system is like nothing I've ever heard of.  You have your choice between magnet schools, charter schools, private schools, choosing another public school out of your area, or going to your designated school.  All because the school system is so bad here, so they create more schools instead of fixing the big problem.
But, I digress.  We didn't move here in time for Norah to go to the magnet or charter schools, which are preferred, so we chose the next best route and got her into an A rated public school.  The only problem is this mama has to drive her 20+ minutes to school every day.  But, let's be honest, I would drive her to school anyway... it's just the commute that will take some getting used to.

We were so lucky to have her Daddy home today to help with the drop off!  His work let him come in a little later so he could be a part of this big moment.  She loved walking along side him to school & I know he cherishes the moments he can be a part of with the girls.
Drop off was rough for her {which was no surprise to us as drop off was rough for her on her LAST day of pre-school}.  We are so fortunate that her school allows us to wait every morning with her until she has to line up for class.
But, she reported that she had a great first day of school & has made lots of new friends!
