"First Kindergarten girl in the Johnson's"
Julia decided to throw herself a party a few days ago to celebrate completing her first week of school. Audrey and Dad were invited. (Mom was working and Maisy had diarrhea)
"Welcome to Julia's Party"

The long awaited first day school has finally arrived. Julia has been looking forward to this day for months and I'm not exactly sure why. She's been most excited about the bus ride and when the bus pulled around this morning, she did a little happy dance. She got on without a hitch and the bus pulled away and that was that. Audrey was a little bit confused because she thought that she was going with Julia. It was also Audrey's first day of preschool today so she insisted on taking her rather large backpack with her to walk Julia to the bus stop. I think that she was ready to hop on the bus to go to school but, alas, not for two years. When we were dropping Audrey off at her preschool, we went in for a few minutes to make sure everything was OK. After telling one of the teachers that she was wearing her favorite shirt and further explaining that our dog Maisy has the poops, she walked in and started playing with the toys. After a minute or two, she looked up at us and asked us what we were still doing there. The difference in our two girls is fairly striking.
Both girls did great today and we love both of them. It's a big change for all of us but that's what life's all about.
