So you can imagine her joy when her 'play day' at kindy finally arrived! The day she got to go and be a real kindy girl and carry a bag and a lunch box, put her bag into a real locker just like the other kids, and not have to say goodbye to Tori - but actually get to play with all the awesome toys! It was a dream come true!!
As she ran up the path with her bag on her back, she had a huge smile on her face. The first group of kindy kids she saw, she excitedly walked up to them and exclaimed, "Guess what?! It's my day to come to kindy today!"
Then after the doors opened, she rushed inside and saw one of the teachers and ran up and said, "Hey! I'm going to stay here at kindy today!" I giggled to myself as I watched her swagger from place to place with a huge smile on her face. As she walked passed my friend Megan, she shouts, "Hi Megan!" and gave a big wave (something she would not normally do). Megan was a little taken aback by her sudden desire to say hello, it was hilarious.
Tori showed her around the classroom and the backyard, helped her put away her things and told her where to sit on the carpeted area. She sat next to her at lunch, and did paintings with her. Eadie just loved having her as her guide.
It was a really great day.
Thanks to Cassandra for watching Anabel for me so I could enjoy every moment watching Eadie
soar on her big adventure.
I now don't worry about how she will go next year. She is totally ready for this next stage, the big step into independence and growing older. She showed me that she is not only excited and capable, but that she is fearless and confident, and I know that she will have a wonderful experience next year. :-)
