Mackenzie's FIRST DAY of school........
............today marks the beginning of her journey of formal education & it was an "AWESOME" one to quote her directly!
She'll be having the same wonderful teacher Lily had in Kindergarten which is fantastic.
Both her & I trouble sleeping last night, she finally fell asleep in our bed around 10.45pm after having gone to bed hours & hours earlier when Lily went to bed & actually zonked out within 2 minutes of her head hitting the pillow. Mackenzie was just so full of questions & very cuddly which was very sweet but then of course my mind was racing overtime & I tossed & turned pretty well through the whole night, a bit nervous but mostly excited for Mackenzie.
She started at 9.30am & was the 2nd child to actually get to the classroom & promptly sat down at a table & began a tracing activity & writing her name. Not a tear in sight, she was just so grown up & immediately comfortable in her new surroundings. She looked so grown up but also so small in her seriously oversized size 4 uniform.
Lily of course is the very proud & protective big sister who played with Mackenzie at lunch time & also bought her an ice block from the canteen.
After walking Buster home & having a snack I took them both down to the beach where they had a great time boogie boarding in the choppy surf with our good friends Russell, Charlotte & Alex.
............a special day with lots of special memories for our family.
