Last year she screamed bloody murder when my parents dropped her off - this year she told me she wasn't going to cry.
I am a little concerned with her class this year, none of her friends from last year are in her class (most of them went to 3 days - we kept B at 2 days since she has swimming and dance as well). She is still in the 2 year old class due to her birthday. Last year they had the classes broken up, younger 2's and older 2's - this year it's just a 2 year old class. We shall see how this works. Since her birthday is in October, she won't start school for another 3 years (this year plus 2 others). I'd rather her repeat some things now than when she's older and very bored, but I am concerned that she may be a bit more advanced.
She already knows her colors, can sing her ABC's, can count to 20, is potty trained, and talks in complete sentences like she's 30! Honestly half of the time I do forget that she is only 2.
B was super excited when Owen came out to take some pictures with her. At first O didn't want to hold the sign since he was not in preschool - but when I told him that everyone would know that he was just holding the sign for her, he was all about it! I love his face in these pics!
He was so excited to help her get ready!!
And yes, she picked out her hair bows all by herself!! ; ) And to get her to smile we say " ICE CREAM"
This next one is the only picture that actually shows her timidness, and that maybe she is just a bit nervous about her first day.
This picture below was taken just outside her school, she looks so excited and a bit nervous.
And 26.7 second after this - she started screaming bloody murder again! She actually walked into the classroom, then ran back out and attached herself to Missy (my mom). Mom was able to pry her off and get her into the classroom - hopefully this doesn't go on for 3 weeks like it did last year!
How did I end up with one child who can't wait to get to school, and another that wants nothing to do with it? ; )
Brynnleigh - you will learn so much in school, and once you get used to your new friends and teachers you will want to go every day to see your friends. You have matured SOOO much this summer and are starting to blossom into such a little social butterfly. We cannot wait to see what you learn in school this year!!
