A Kindergartner No More

Paige needed to wear her fanciest dress for the last day of school
 We were scared to death to watch Paige get on the bus and head off to all-day kindergarten. But it didn't seem to faze her at all.

I'm pretty sure that Paige has loved every minute of kindergarten, from having THREE RECESSES! to getting to read her favorite book, Junie B. Jones, in front of the class, to playing Mario and Luigi at recess with the boys (she was always Princess Peach--she loves getting rescued).

We were happy when we found out that she had tested into the Advanced Reader program for first grade. The only drawback is that it's at another school in the district. (I'm sure Traci will be ecstatic to drive her to and from school every day next year.) So as far as friends and lunch lines and surroundings go, she'll be starting over.

We were worried that she would be upset when we told her the news, but she didn't seem to mind.

"Will I still get to go on the bus?" was her first question.

"No, sweetie. But we've met your new teacher and she's really excited to meet you and you'll get to make a lot of new friends!"

"Okay. I won't miss Oquirrh Hills," she added frankly.

So that was that.

And summer begins.
