First Day of School!!



Well, I can't figure out how to turn these photos and I don't feel like figuring it out right now, but I wanted to share some good news, sicnce our news of late has been depressing.
Gracie had her first day of school on Monday. Her preschool is 3 1/2 hours a day and she goes three days a week. I was worried about how she would do becuase I had to pack her off from a hotel room, but she did so well. She was so excited to pack a lunch and wear a bookbag. She looked so cute and gave me a kiss and ran off to play. When I picked her up she was playing with the other kids and laughing. What a relief!
Today was her second day and same thing. She went in so happily. Her teacher said to her, "My aren't you smiley!" Half the class was crying and I am just so thankful she wasn't. I don't think I could deal with that on top of everything else going on right now.
I have to admit it made me a bit tearful to tell her good-bye. Cliche I know, but I can't believe how big she is getting. I love it and hate it at the same time. She is getting so big and wise. She told me the day before she started school that, "When I go to school I am big, but when I come home I am still little." I told her of course, you are always my baby at home. So cute.

Hi! Can't wait for Connor to go to preschool...one where someone else is teaching him. Today I pulled out those three sesame street educational workbooks and he got so excited and started talking about Gracie. He knew that they were hers!

You totally nailed it when you said you love it and hate it at the same time...kids growing up, I mean. It's crazy! She looks so cute!

Heather,
What an ordeal you are going through! I can't believe you are living out of a hotel. Probably not the smooth transition you were picturing in your head. Augh! We'll be thinking of you. Endure!

Grace is so cute. And yes, what a big girl! I'm sure she will just love preschool!
