1st Day of Pre-K

preschoolpreschoolpreschoolpreschoolWhat a bittersweet day!  I’ve spent the last 4 years with my little girls & it was time to let them leave the nest:-(  I know it’s going to be a great experience for them, but it sure is tough on Mom.  I’m grateful that I’ve spent every minute with them the past 4 years.  We didn’t start them in school last year, so that I could soak it all in for one more year.

Monday was technically the 1st day of school, but parents stayed with them & it was only for an hour.  So today, was the “real deal.”  The girls woke up excited & did an awesome job getting themselves ready for the day.  They both wanted grilled cheese for lunch, so they will be having grilled cheese, grapes, blueberries & cookies when they open their lunch box.  When we got to the classroom, I walked them in & helped get their hands washed…then hung around for a few minutes to get them acclimated.  Ellie kind of jumped right in & started playing.  Audrie, I could see a little bit of apprehension on her face.  Ellie spotted the trains that she remembered from Monday & started playing.  Then Audrie came over to play, too.  When I left the were both playing trains…they were pretty into it & gave me a quick hug goodbye.  No tears for them, & just a few for me.  Now, I sit here..Mallorie is napping & I’m catching up the blog.  Can’t wait to pick them up & I pray they have such a fun day!
