School projects, book orders, school pictures, new best friends, new songs, backpacks, show & tell, field trips, etc etc etc... We love it all, Avrie loves it all! She attends a Lutheran Preschool program just minutes from our house three days a week for a couple of hours in the morning.
On September 4th we had so much fun anticipating the 1st day of school. After a day trip of "school shopping" we had the perfect 1st day of school outfit picked out. I made her a cute little sign to hold (which she loved and insisted she hold for a picture before school for the rest of the week). Her and I worked on a banner to hang as a fun & cute backdrop for 1st the day of school photos.
[her excitement made for some really great pictures!]
The weather was beautiful, so no jacket was needed and she was SO excited to go to school. The 1st day was parent/student day, so I was able to tag along for day 1 to get an idea of how Avrie's school day will go.
The 2nd day back to school, she ran into her classroom hugging BOTH of her teachers and yelling BYE MOM!
[on the way to day 2]
Right there I knew that we made the right decision on both putting her in school at age three and we picked the right school as well. So far we love it and Avrie continues love it and to also be excited for school each day!
I look forward to hearing from her teachers in November at conferences. I am SO curious to hear if she is as independent there as she is at home? Does she get along well with all of her classmates? She talks about a couple of the girls in class, non stop and mentions a few others here and there. Is she enjoying the curriculum, how is she doing with it? What does she do well with & what areas can we work more on with her? Do her teachers have a good feel for her true personality- and do they think that she is just the CUTEST THING EVER- like we do! ;)
