SOUTHPORT, NC (WWAY) — The first day of kindergarten is a milestone for every child and parent. Today that day came for the Manipole family from Southport, who let us go along for little Sophia’s first day of school.

Sophia woke ready for her to-do list.

“Get dressed, eat breakfast, get your shoes on, get all the stuff together and go to school!” she said.

The 5-year-old’s parents say she’s been looking forward to this day for months, and with a little bit of help from her little sister Audrey, she was ready.

“She hasn’t been worried,” Sophia’s dad Lou said.

The only thing or person she was worried about was one of the boys in her class.

“He always thinks I’m his girlfriend,” Sophia said blushing and smiling.

Putting that smile to use, it was time for pictures, and then into the car.

“She’s really just one of those kids that’s always ready to take on anything,” mom Chrissy said.

At school, Sophia quickly found her place.

“I can’t wait to just see her excel, that smile on her face when she comes home with an ‘A’ on a test,” Lou said.

After going over some quick classroom etiquette, it was time for circle, and for Sophia’s parents to make their way home.

Although Chrissy and Lou did not shed any tears in front of their daughter.

“As soon as I get into the car I will be bawling like a baby,” Chrissy said.

Sophia’s mom said she and Audrey were going to do something special today as they wait for sophia to get out of school. She says she looks forward to hearing all about Sophia’s day and how many new friends she made.

I am trying to remember which grade I was in, when proper sentence structure was taught, but that was so long ago. I am not saying that I am perfect with my writing, by any means, but I don’t write every day and I don’t get paid for it.

“Although Chrissy and Lou did not shed any tears in front of their daughter.”

Yep, when I grow up I want to write more better professional sentences like this one too.
