Maya's First Day of Kindergarten

Today was Maya's first day of kindergarten. This morning, our family plus my parents, my sister, and my nephew accompanied Maya on the one-mile walk to Whittier Elementary. She was wearing one of her new "uniform" outfits, and she seemed very excited.

Upon arrival at Whittier, Maya got a little sad and scared, so her tears were central to our parting, but when we returned to pick her up at 11:15 today, she was all smiles. She LOVED kindergarten.
A cute pre-kindergarten smile.
And here you can see her cute plaid jumper and white-collared shirt.
Maya walked alongside Marmie and held her hand for much of the trip.

Wedding Weekend

We spent this past weekend in the mountains of California at Aaron's cousin Crystal's wedding. Maya was the flower girl and I sang in the ceremony. It was a lovely, if brief, trip filled with wonderful celebrations and time to be with family.

Here is Maya with Crystal, the bride.
