I can't believe how grown up The Great Sosini is!! First day of kindergarten at Lakeside Elementary School in Coppell, Texas.
Isn't that pencil skirt hilarious? As you can tell, our sweet baboo is really, really excited about kindergarten.
Daddy and his mini-me:
Sonia and her unshowered mommy.... I was just about to walk 6/10ths of a mile there and back (1.2 miles total) in nasty humidity. Shortly after this picture was taken, I changed into shorts. It's not a good sign if you're sweating while just taking pictures.
As soon as we walked in the building, we ran into one of Sonia's favorite people in the whole world, our neighbor, Aidan. She is in fourth grade but is SO sweet to her little kindergarten buddy. She and her mom were handing apple-shaped cake pops out to teachers and administrators. That is hardcore!
Once we got in the classroom, it was time to unpack her backpack.
Mrs. Keith is her teacher! It's amazing to think that Sonia will graduate high school in 2027. Only 13 more years of hard work....
Backpacks get stashed in their cubbies.
Looks like she's about 45 inches right now (with shoes on, anyway). I wonder how tall she'll be on the last day of school!
No tears were shed from either of us at drop off. We're tough cookies.
I hope you have a wonderful year in kindergarten, Sonia!
