hi everyone, I'm Emma (28) - Mummy to two girls, Emersyn who is 16 months old & my brand new gradeschooler - Gaby, who turned 5 today! I live in NZ & they start school at age 5 over here, which I think is a year earlier than in the States? We had no problems with me having to leave - I don't think she could have cared less that I was leaving but that's good... She loves her teacher and has already made some friends, so I think she felt quite comfortable as soon as we arrived. I admittedly shed a few tears on the way from her classroom to the car

here are some photos

in her uniform, at about 7.30am we didn't have to leave til 8.30am

just before we left

the obligatory photo in front of the school sign

hanging her bag up

and sitting at her desk

thanks ladies

she had a great day, couldn't wait to go back this morning.. although when she asked how many years she's do to school for, and I said 13, she replied "oh... think I might just stay 4 forever then...". LOL.
