First Day of Kindergarten


Jessie had a wonderful first day of kindergarten.  She started out the day with tremendous enthusiasm and came home even more excited.  She emerged from her classroom announcing that she loved it and told everyone she spoke with how school is awesome!

Ready for a new adventure.

It’s a BIG day for the whole family!

Our dear friends and neighbors (see lost wallet story) have adopted Jess into their family and it melted my heart to see them walk to school together hand-in-hand.

Jess already loves her teacher!

Time to go in!

Jessie didn’t end up in the same class with any of her friends, but she spent the break eating with her buddy, Gage.

Jessie has known Emma all her life.  They are both kindergarteners at the same school and will see each other every day.

Last night as we were putting Jessie to bed, she said, “You know that picture of me with my teacher?  Can we make a card with that picture?  I want it to say that I am excited about kindergarten and I want to draw something for her.”

Alas, Jess woke this morning infused with more enthusiasm and meticulously made this precious card for her teacher.

    I am so glad to hear that Jessie had such a fabulous first day of kindergarten! I cannot believe how much she has grown and changed since we met you not even a year and a half ago. Carson also started kindergarten this year and it has left me with an empty house, it is bittersweet watching them grow up!

    How time flies! I am absolutely thrilled that Jessie is so enthusiastic about school. It doesn’t surprise me, as she takes after both her parents. It is nice to be updated on the Levasheff family. Unfortuately, sometimes it seems it was yesterday when Drake was going to school. Cheers and God bless.

I am so glad you are blogging. Your writing is beautiful and a gift. Look forward to reading about so many new adventures! God Bless.
