Pre-k for the 4 year old

Lillian started Pre-K this week.  To say she loved it would be an understatement. 
So far she has loved everything about it. 

She actually likes getting her hair done in the morning. Which worries me.  She wanted it perfectly curled like a freshman going to prom.  She knew she wanted a side ponytail and would pick up pieces that weren't curled to her liking.  As you'll notice her hair doesn't even hold curl well.

She likes getting dressed in the morning.  As most of you know Lillian has her own sense of self.  Luckily or maybe sadly she hasn't requested a dance outfit on a school day yet.

She loves making her bed right now.  Like almost OCD likes making it.  We had her all ready for school, shoes on (which is a big deal) and ready to go.  I find her in her room insisting that her bed be made perfect before we leave and with her shoes off... to say I overreacted may be an understatement. 
Sorry Lillian.

Gotta love it when I get in the picture with my babies once in a while

1st of 1st

1st Day of 1st Grade

He was ready to go and start his new school.

Hot Wheels back pack.  
He's really into cars right now.
Lillian picked a special outfit for the day.  
Complete with the rolled up pants.

He was a little unsure about going in and I was confused on what to do.
 I drew him a map how to get to his room from the front door.
 So I walked him to the door and he told me to stay there....
...but I followed him, from a distance.
When he arrived at his room he was so proud that he made it there by himself.
He was also a little happy that he saw me too ;)
After the first day the drop offs were a little rough.
I couldn't figure out a smooth way of getting him dropped off.  After the first week people were settling into the "norm" a little more which made it easier for us to figure out what the heck to do.
