Riley the Kindergartener

Riley started kindergarten at a charter school on Monday, August 22nd as a 4 year old! Then she turned 5 the next day. I can't believe how big she is getting. She will always be the youngest in her class (or darn close to the youngest)!

She was so ready for school! She has had two years of preschool and can read easily as well as any 1st grader. That being said, there is still much for her to learn in Kindergarten! She is loving it so much.

The two best things about charter schools are: parent involvement and uniforms! I love the dress code. It makes school shopping easy and kids in uniforms look so darn cute. I bought pretty much all of her clothes used. Which was a HUGE savings. Uniforms are expensive when brand new!

On her birthday, she chose to go to dinner at Texas Roadhouse. She got to sit on the saddle and they did their little spiel. Then they brought her free ice cream. That night we also had Cold Stone and opened presents. Grandma Debbie was in town for it :)

The night before school started (Sunday evening) we had family over for dinner and birthday cake :)
