Anyway, we don't always get there at the same time as Jack and Abby, but Lily usually sees someone she wants to walk in with. And then, look who was waiting at drop-off this morning...
Lily had no problem getting out of the car today!

The actual words are "Mud. Mud. I love mud. I'm absolutely, positively wild about mud. I can't go around it, I've got to go through it. Wonderful, fabulous, super-duper mud!" The girls love it, Rory especially, but we're having a hard time getting it on video...

And a "circle bear" - the kids were given all the circles but no directions, and had to create their own bear.
Lily was very proud to show us her classroom, her chair, and her spot on the "magic carpet". We all love her teacher, her assistant teacher and everyone we've met so far at school. We're feeling very fortunate.

Lily, starting kindergarden is a really big deal. It's been tough for Mommy and I to handle how little baby-Lily is left in you, but the big kid that is taking over is so amazing. You are clever and thoughtful, and so helpful to us and your teachers. We are sad to see baby-Lily go, but so excited for you.I love you Lily.

Lily: "I don't mind!"
(Mommy thinks to herself: "Sure, YOU don't mind. But none of us will sleep much if there's no door in between us.")
Lily: "I mean, I don't need any candy or cookies or anything."

And her artwork.
Working on numbers...
My favorite! A new family portrait... I especially love Daddy's big teeth and all of our piggy noses.

She couldn't wait to get there. Couldn't wait to put on her tap shoes. One hour later, after tap and ballet and jazz, the teacher opened the curtain on the window so we could watch 16 5-year-olds jump and spin and wiggle in unison. Awesome!

When Daddy asked her how school was after her second day, she told him, "Great! It was awesome. Even better than yesterday."
We're off to a good start.

Michelle Branch - Crazy Ride
Goodnight big moon, sweet dreams baby.
If I could have one wish tonight, it would be that you'll always keep, keep the starlight in your eyes.
One day you'll grow up, one day you'll walk out in this big world on your own.
And they'll be days that your heart will break and you'll swear that all your strength is gone.
But then you'll find a way to carry on.
Heaven knows that its a crazy ride.
It's never perfect all the time.
It will pull you down and send you flyin'.
So baby hold on tight, on this crazy ride.
Taylor Swift - Never Grow Up
To you, everything's funny.
You got nothing to regret.
I'd give all I have, honey, if you could stay like that.
Oh, darling, don't you ever grow up, don't you ever grow up, just stay this little.
Oh, darling, don't you ever grow up, don't you ever grow up, it could stay this simple.
I won't let nobody hurt you, won't let no one break your heart.
No, no one will desert you - just try to never grow up, never grow up.
Trace Adkins - You're Gonna Miss This
You're gonna miss this. You're gonna want this back
You're gonna wish these days hadn't gone by so fast.
There are some good times, so take a good look around.
You may not know it now but your gonna miss this.
3:45 couldn't get here fast enough.
