No tears

It was Sage's first day of kindergarten today and there were no tears (on her AND on my part! LOL!) Although, from all the comments that everyone made to me, I think they wanted to see me cry. "Oh, it's your baby!" "Oh, you must be so sad!" And then the teacher gives a little baggy that mentions the gentle spirit of my child....

I took it all in stride and smiled as I told her good-bye. She is SOOOO ready. I know she'll do great!

(An aside, yesterday, at a shop in town, the clerk asked Sage about starting kindergarten and Sage said: "Yeah, but I'm going to miss my mom." Yeah, right. I know she just said this for my benefit-- she's such a sweetie!)

Okay, here are her first day pictures:







And with her teacher, Mme. Routhier:



If you're wondering, what she's holding, we made cracker jack popcorn for her teachers. I made little tags using Pink Paislee pp, my scalloped and round punches, some ribbon and a SU! stamp. Sorry for the bad picture... it rained all morning.



A few scrappy things to mention....

Great pictures! I love her pink coat and shoes. And the tags on the homemade caramel corn are a great idea too --- will have to remember that for Halloween bags for the grandkids this year
