I don't believe there has ever been a child more excited about the first day of Kindergarten than Ashlyn. (I still remember my first day of Kindergarten, waking up early, long before I needed to get to school. I've been told that I even wore my mom's knee highs to be more dressed up!)
Christopher and I walked Ashlyn to her bus stop, then we drove to school, meeting Daddy to take Ashlyn into her classroom.
I'm so glad that there are so many other crazy moms and dads that were standing by the buses, cameras aimed at the door, for their kid to get off the bus.

Getting off of the bus at the end of the day. It was about 104, and the girl was dripping.
(Bus drivers and Kindergarten teachers need their biggest appreciation for this time of year.)
I thought I would be more upset about my baby growing up and starting school. Her excitement made it hard to be sad.
