1st day of Kindergarten!!!

Mariyah started her 1st day of kindergarten. She goes to school Monday-Friday half day. Since her birthday is in Oct shes misses the cut off date of going to all day kindergarten, but they have an amazing kindergarten program for children who don't turn 5 by August 31 and Mariyah was on the waiting list and got in. She was so excited getting ready for school this morning and everything well really well getting her to school. We laid out her clothes last night and I was so happy that she was excited to wear her new gymbore outfit. We have had too much fun buying her new clothes:). My mom works at an elementary school and she was able to come by our place as we were leaving so that we could get a pic of her and Mariyah as we were leaving to school.
When we got to school their was a long line of parents and children waiting for the teachers to come and call the kids names. That way we weren't all piled in the classroom. Mariyah and other kids played on the playground for about 5 min before her teacher came out and off went Mariyah. I am amazed but I was able to hold back my tears. Mariyah had a few tears but I gave her a hug and said I love you and then her teacher said hi Mariyah and she took her into the classroom.
Are any of your kids all about Hannah Montana this year? Mariyah was all about finding the perfect Hannah Montana backpack(yes we did go to 3 stores to find the right one and Kohls was the place), Hannah Montana pencils, erasers, and folder. It's just amazing to me at what young age children are already into all these super stars....I think it must be because of the Disney Channel or maybe because every store we go into there they are. What happened to my little girl wanting the princess characters on her folder and backpack. The pic that cracks me up is the one of Ry and her backpack. She said mom let me turn around so that you can get a picture of my backpack on me.

How exciting for M to go to school already. With her outgoing personality I think she'll love it.
