Kindergarten is an exciting and scary time for little ones, so I did a few things to help ease Lillie's nerves and celebrate the day.
First, I gave her this "Off to Kindergarten" book, by Tony Johnston and a poem with magic dust.

We also got a "Congratulations Lillie" cookie and balloon to celebrate Lillie's first day of school. She will be surprised when she gets home and I can't wait to hear about her first day. I am off to the bus stop. I hope that your little one had a great first day at school.
