We started our week after Labor Day with sweet Avery starting Preschool. I recycled the same First Day of School breakfast from the week before only with egg sandwiches this time.
It’s hard to believe my baby is old enough to go to school but I’m excited for her to learn and play the same way McKenna did. Preschool really helped McKenna come out of her shell. Miss Averycakes is pretty well out of her shell already but I think having a good schedule will help her get ready for Kindergarten in two years.
She is so full of life and is my little dare-devil. She jumped from a moving golf cart a week ago and almost scared us to death. Needless to say, her teachers have no idea what sort of fun they have in store.
We couldn’t leave out big sister.
I love her little butterfly backpack. She picked it out herself when we were in Myrtle Beach. McKenna also picked out her own but it she chose a cheesy Big Time Rush bookbag. Cherish those days when they still love the cute stuff!
For some reason she didn’t want me to take any more pictures once we got inside but I did manage to sneak in a few. She marched right inside and put her bookbag in her cubby like she’d been doing it for years.
I hung out over in the corner watching her to see how she would do. Part of me wanted her to cry a little or at least act like she didn’t want me to leave. But after a couple of minutes she skipped right over to me and said, “Bye Mom!” I took that as my sign to leave. Or as her telling me to leave.
And then I went to the car and cried. I’ve had it both ways. It’s hard when they cry for you and it’s hard when they don’t. I guess it’s just hard to let them go in general.
And on another note, she is also obsessed with the high heels shoes. They fight over who is going to clunk through the house in them.
And I took this instagram photo of my Mom and Avery driving the grain wagon and it was too cute not to share.
Now I’ve got to run get these girls ready for church!
P.S. I’m linking up to Serenity Now!
