|How cute are these little hands?|
Today was EasternStar's first real day of preschool. Technically they started yesterday, but it was an abbreviated day. Half of the class came for 1 hour and did 10 minutes of each activity. Then the second half of the class came later for 1 hour and did the same thing. Today the entire class went for the full 2.5 hours.
I wish that I could have been there to see her off. Sadly I had to work and Stranger was the lucky one to take her and pick her up. It sounds like she had a great day and made this picture all by herself. She was most excited that she used the potty and got to have her cheese & pretzels at school.
I am so excited for her to start something new all by herself. She is really growing into her role as a "big kid" and sometimes wants to do things on her own. I hope that school will help build her confidence in herself and her skills. If nothing else, I hope that going to school will teach her that Yes, she can pull down her own pants, climb on the potty, wipe, pull her pants up and then wash her hands. All. by. herself. Please God. If nothing else, let us finish the year mastering using the potty alone. 8 )
