On Sunday morning, the day before school started, Laney opened her final gift from us to countdown to kindergarten! She was excited!

Last Saturday, Laney and I got to work on a little crafty craft for her teacher. I saw it on, none other than, Pinterest! We got some cute schoolish paper (leftover from our Back to School Banner) and a plain jane clipboard (picked up for me by Jess) and a little bit of mod podge! Ready, Set, Create!!!

We asked Virginia if Madeline could stay after the party and spend the night. Both of the girls were really excited about their very first slumber party. They couldn't wait to get their jammies on and set up their sleeping bags on Laney's floor. They were all ready to get bundled in, and I had to convince them to get up and do some "slumber party" things!
Last year, when my little niece Claire Bear started kindergarten, one of her friends hosted a Kindergarten kick off party for the girls on their soccer team that would all be starting kindergarten together at their school. I made a mental note to steal that fantastic idea! We invited the friends that we have from church that will be starting kindergarten at Laney's school. I wanted the kids to have an opportunity, right before school started, to spend some time playing with familiar faces so that their big day would be a little less intimidating! It was so great and went exactly how I hoped. Happy kids playing like crazy and enjoying each other to pieces!
Here is a picture of all the girls except Abigail. Paige Madeline and Laney. Masynn and her big sister Peyton are behind them.

The first part of her gift was smarties, music to my little sweet tooth having girl's heart!
Last Thursday night was Meet the Teacher night at Laney's school. She was really excited about it and I was so hopeful that it would go well and leave her with a good feeling about school starting the following Monday. We walked to the school. It is such an awesome blessing to be within three minutes walking distance from our school!! Laney and Miles held hands as they walked down the sidewalk!
They got to choose their lockers and, of course, chose ones right next to each other!
