VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Some of Valdosta's youngest students are back home Thursday night after their first day of real school.

Sallas Mahone Elementary held a "Boohoo-Yippee" breakfast Thursday morning for all of the parents taking their kindergartners to school for the first time. The idea was for the parents to share both the sadness and excitement that goes along with taking a child to school for the first time.

"It is very emotional. You feel like they're completely independent now," said Courtney Sheeley, a mother of a kindergartner. Amy Woods, another mother of a kindergartner, said about taking her son to school for the first time "He was happy, and that made momma happy. It made me know that he would be happy."

S.L. Mason Elementary and W.G. Nunn Elementary also held a breakfast for parents.
