1st day of preschool...

During graduated entry week...It was Tuesday after Labor Day and that was Avery's day to experience pre-school! She was able to go a full day with only a few of her classmates, so that she wasn't so overwhelmed, and the teachers were able to spend good quality time with each child to discover a little bit about their personalities, strengths, weaknesses, etc... Once again, she picked out the outfit and the hairstyle (not exactly what I had in mind, but my type A self is trying to allow her to show some independence and I realize that some battles aren't worth fighting! ) and she LOVED every minute of her fun filled day! I am so proud of her and can't believe that she is a pre-schooler, but I am thrilled about all that she will learn this year! It's going to be fun!

 We decided that since this was such a big day (and the weather was BEAUTIFUL) that we would have a chick-fil-a picnic breakfast in the back of the car :)

 Her "spot"! Look how precious she is...

So at the end of August, we got the opportunity to go to Avery's new pre-school and meet her teachers, see her classroom and attend a "what to expect" meeting. This day in particular, Avery had joined me at work and we were heading home discussing what we needed to do before time to go to the meeting! I explained that she would need to go ahead and take a bath, so we wouldn't have to do it once we got home! She was going through her closet in her head to determine exactly what outfit she was going to wear! Once we got home, she had her bath and informed me that I was going to need to blow dry her hair straight for the evening, that she would need some "sparkly stuff" on her eyes and her Tinkerbell lip gloss was a must! Oh and we must not forget about the high heels...I am telling you that getting ready for her preschool meet-n-greet was intense....I can only imagine what prom night will look like! Oh my goodness, pray for my sanity...Its going to be a crazy, fun journey! :)
