Last friday was Stella's very first day of preschool - A day she has waited for two years, every once and awhile asking, "I go to school like Rowan yet?" Finally her turn, we laid out her outfit the night before and started to prep for the day. We talked about using the potty on her own, sharing with friends, and making sure to keep her ears open for things her teacher had to say. We had attended the open house the Monday before and were happy to see that not only would she be in big sister's old classroom but would have the same assistant teacher, making the transition much easier on her (and me).
At drop off she seemed a little bit reluctant as she walked to the circle carpet but I was assured upon pick up that she had a wonderful day full of firsts and new friends. Now we patiently wait until it is thursday again, this might be the hardest part for our eager girl. Tim told me the other night that she was very disappointed to hear that she didn't have school the next day (Saturday) because "school is really good for her head."
She is getting so big I can hardly believe it! I am excited to see what this year has in store for her and she explores all of the fun preschool has to offer. It's wonderful knowing that two days a week she has her own special time set aside.
I would be lying if i didn't say that I love that we are all finally settled into our new fall routine, I live for a good full schedule. Bring on the pumpkin patch field trips, baby dates at Starbucks, and cleaning the house with slightly more peace and quiet!
