madeira had her first day of kindergarten last thursday. we celebrated with our annual nite before school dinner, crown and theme for the year (thanks to nie nie, who does it SO much better, by the way-next year i am stepping up my game) madeira, or maddie as she is now requesting to be called, is loving school, up and dressed with hair brushed and bag packed every morning by 6.10am. and yes it does take the pain of being woken up so early in the morning away a bit when you see that smile of accomplishment an inch from your face first thing. love that girl. we are excited about the upcoming year, new school and new beginnings-we are more than ready.
our theme for the year is SHOW LOVE AND GRACE TO ALL. EVEN YOURSELF.
hope i can work on that one right alongside madeira.
