They started off the morning with breakfast, and reading cards from Grandma Vicki wishing them a great first day!
To Ben and Sydney on your 1st Day of Kindergarten:
I watched you a little bit closer today,
As you ate your breakfast, and then got dressed,
I can’t wait for you to go learn and play,
Knowing how much I have truly been blessed.
I pray for you that on this new day,
As you get out your scissors and your glue,
That you will make new friends and find your way,
And maybe even learn something new.
I know your day will be filled with fun,
With recess and lunch and art and reading,
And though your mama is a sad one,
I know you’ll be getting what you are needing.
Ben and Sydney, you have my heart,
And I’m always just a phone call away,
I’m hopeful for you in this brand new start,
Though I cried as I watched you walk away.
Onto the bus, you ran with joy,
I couldn’t believe how much you’d grown,
Even though you’re still my little girl and boy,
I will trust that I’ve taught you to be on your own.
But at the end of the day, I’ll be waiting for you,
I hope to hear that you had fun,
You have so much to learn and do,
Your school career has just begun!
Mommy and daddy are so proud, my dears,
We are sad, but we are happy too,
Don’t worry about our silly tears,
Remember how happy we are for you.
And tonight when I tuck you into bed,
I will hug you a little bit tighter still,
For you are still my babies in my head,
I love you and I always will!
