First day of Grade R!

After weeks and weeks of talking about "big school", preparing her, being excited with her - the day finally arrived.  Mia Mooi has gone to Grade R.

She was so very very brave!  Oh that little face, she looked so lost and unsure, but put on a wobbly smile and hugged and kissed me goodbye.  I held my pose until I got into the car and then dissolved into tears!

Oh how I pray her heart is content.  I hope the teachers and children are nice to her.  I hope she feels peaceful and happy.  I hope she makes special friends. I hope she loves school!

Can't wait to go fetch her and hear all about it.

  1. Aaaw Jess! That pic of her sitting - her face.... Hope the day went well.

    Matthew does Grade R next year. Bittersweet but part of growing up, I suppose.

  2. Gosh Jess, I hope all went well. I do think it is harder on the parents than on the kids. Will post about our Grade 1 experience soon
