My little Averycakes started her last year of preschool this past week. Where does the time go?!?
We celebrated with our back-to-school breakfast. (It looks eerily similar to the one we had for McKenna the week before. Almost as if I just left everything sitting out on the kitchen table for over a week…) I did switch out the books and change the chalkboard but everything else is the same.
This girl was so excited to go back to school. Last year she went to preschool two days each week for 3 hours but this year we’ve moved up to 4 days each week.
When I asked her if she wanted to go to school 4 days per week this year she said, “No! Five!” So it’s safe to say there’s no where she’d rather be.
She really was not that interested in posing for a thousand pictures but we managed to get a few. I mean…she had places to go and people to see!
When we made it to school she obliged me with one more picture. Notice her purse. She wants to take it everywhere.
And then she wasted no time settling into her cubby. She wanted to use the same bookbag as last year which I thought was awesome!
And then she got down to the business of playing. She missed those blocks all summer!
She didn’t cry or even bat an eye when I left. I kissed her on the head and she continued about her business. I have to admit a tiny sliver of me wanted her to.
I’m going to start mentally preparing myself for the first day of Kindergarten now in hopes to avoid a nervous breakdown next year.
And that, friends, was the first day of preschool!
