Did I cry on and off all day today? Why yes I did. But I survived and now am excited, TRULY excited, to see where this year takes us! I’ve been up since 4:30am and am beat. So instead of rambling on about how proud I am of Bailey on her first day here are the ONLY snap shots I was able to grab!
When the bell rang letting the parents know it was time to go and let school start she got teary. Wiping her eyes furiously. Staying so brave. So as I melted down inside I hugged her tight and said goodbye. Then I popped on my sunglasses and cried all the way home.
And it took me a few hours until I could even say the words “she started crying” without tears flooding my eyes. But tonight I feel good and tired and happy that the first thing she said to me as she came running outside was “Mommy! I made a friend today!” I prayed ALL day that God would protect her and hold her and give her strength and help her make friends. Tonight I just keep praising God that He is good and Bailey’s day was incredible!
These are the only ones I got as she came out of school b/c I was so excited to see her I forgot I had my camera! The settings were set from shooting inside earlier in the day so ignore the BAD photography!
Chris had his first day of school today too so he couldn’t take Bails to school this morning… but he left early to make sure he was there when she walked outside! It couldn’t have made either Bailey or I more happy to have him there!
My parents, C’s mom, my nieces and of course Gray and Parker were supposed to be there to pick her up as well but in their hurry to get there my dad got pulled over! HA! So we met up with our friends the MacBrydes and ALL of us had snocones to celebrate the first day of school!
And now, I’m going to go pass out so I can do it all again tomorrow! Minus the tears!
