We're Back = First day of school!

Today was the long awaited first day of kindergarten for Gracie. She has been waiting to go to kindergarten - on the school bus - since the day she watched Rita head off to kindergarten three years ago. For Gracie this is the fulfillment of her life-long dream today.

She woke up at about 6:20 this morning and wanted to know if today was the day she gets to go to kindergarten. She squealed with delight as we told her yes.

Here are some photos from the first day of school. She came hope wiped out from her early start and the first day without a nap. She needed to close her eyes for a bit when she got home.

I will try to keep this blog current now with updates on school, mainstream school with a special diet and how we are managing life with epilepsy. And of course photos!


  1. Go Gracie!!!! Marie, I am thrilled that you are going to start updating. Miss you!

  2. Welcome back! Jade also started school yesterday. I've been checking in at the school at snack and lunchtime, but the school has been great about getting supports in place for her. A few more days and I think I *might* be comfortable enough to let them do it on their own. :)
