Jeremy came home early to go with us, and Bethany was home to watch Jamey & Livy. Ivy had fun unpacking the school supplies from her backpack, finding her locker and name tag, and then coloring with the assistant teacher while her teacher walked through all the "necessary info" with parents.
Her teacher, Mrs. Dovre, read The Kissing Hand. It's all about how Chester the Raccoon is going to kindergarten, and he's a little nervous. His mom gives him a kiss on his left hand so he won't get lonely. I had to leave the room because I was crying.
I think I'm going to have a hard time tomorrow. I also think Jamey is going to be lost without Ivy here every afternoon. But Ivy is very excited to play with her new friends.
On the way out, we met the gym teacher. She seems very nice. In fact, every one seems super nice.
