Paige is attending kindergarten here on post at Fort Knox. Their school year started Aug 2nd and since we didn't move here until the end of August she started 3 weeks later than everyone else. I wasn't too concerned about that though. Change doesn't seem to phase her much; Paige is a super adaptable kid.

We arrived at Fort Knox on a Saturday evening, attended our new ward on Sunday, signed for our home and watched the movers bring in all our stuff on Monday, unpacked all day Tuesday, and on Wednesday Paige attended her first day of kindergarten after saying good-bye to Honey and Papa. Talk about a whirlwind week! She handled it great though and even rode the bus home, for the first time ever, that afternoon.

Here she is on her first day of kindergarten.

Doesn't Papa look a little sad? He has to say goodbye soon.

About a week later we let Paige ride the bus to school. She was excited. I wasn't.  It picks her up at 7:35 am and drops her home at 3:30 pm! That's a long day for a 5 year old. Most mornings I drive her school to keep her with me for an extra 50 minutes since school doesn't start till 8:30.

Claire, still in her pjs, waving goodbye to Paige.

And Paige waving back.

Reading your post this morning made me cry. I sometimes forget that your so far away. Too far away. It's better when I forget.
