I would say she's thrilled to be going to Kindergarten, but really, I think she is more excited about wearing her new clothes.
Definitely her mother's daughter. She got that backpack as her Potty Training reward when she was 2 and it was fine until 2 months ago when Munchkin chewed on the zipper and broke it. So I ordered the kids new backpacks from LLBean and ghetto-rigged her old one until her new one comes. Poor ET's backpack is in sorry condition too. The front pocket is falling off, there is a kink in the zipper so it only unzips about 3/4 of the way. But he's getting a new one too. I talked them into plaid because I think they will still like plaid in 5 years--and those backpacks have a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
