1st day of preschool

My little princess started preschool today. I can't believe how quickly she has grown up, it's just so sad.

Here she is getting ready to leave the house - she is very proud of her new back-pack...it is NOT a book bag, only a back pack!

Here she is getting out of the car at preschool

She would have just walked herself right in if she could have...she wasn't about to wait on mom and dad!

We had to do the "first born child is starting preschool pics" this morning and make sure we got one in front of the sign.

She sat right down and was ready for us to leave...we weren't quite that anxious to get out of there though :-(

When we picked her up she didn't have too much to say.
mom and dad: what did you do today
Olivia: I don't know
mom and dad: did you play
Olivia: ya, with play dough
mom and dad: what did you make?
Olivia: I don't know
mom and dad: what else did you do?
Olivia: I don't know
mom and dad: Did you read books?
Olivia: yes
mom and dad: What books?
Olivia: I don't know
mom and dad: What else did you do?
Olivia: I met some new friends
mom and dad: What were their names?
Olivia: I don't know
mom and dad: What else did you do?
Olivia: We learned the clean-up song
mom and dad: well how does it go?
Olivia: I don't know

She's so funny!

She didn't have any problems going to school...I on the other hand got a little emotional and cried for a minute on the way home...I'm sure it's just my hormones :-)

It's not your hormones. I got teary eyed too today- Claudia's first day.

Olivia looks cute.

I was bawlin' the whole way home. After I got Chris settled in Chris quickly turned to me and said, "Ok, Mom, it's time for you to go." The waterworks turned on instantaneously and I had to make a b-line for the door. I cleaned like none other when I got home just to keep my mind busy. He loved it though! I love Olivia's pig tails! Holly:)

Yep, first kid. :-) Greta's first day was today. I took one picture of her on the front porch at home. She didn't blink and I didn't shed a tear. I was too busy crying over what I did to Wyatt. . .

O's recap sounds just like G's. "I played and cleaned up."

They grow so fast! The best thing about a first-born, tho is it's exciting to see them enjoy new things, knowing you've got others in the wings who are still little (and who still need you!)

Believe me before you know it, you'll be sending her off to college! She looks absolutely precious!
