{ The preschooler! }

55/365

As much as I was not quite ready, she was. She has been for months, so yesterday she did. Yesterday she became a PRESCHOOLER!! She is the newest student at First Steps Christian Preschool! Our baby Avery is growing up so so quickly. I had a very hard time with the idea and was very emotional over it, but all of this was overshadowed by her joy and excitement! (We made the decision to enroll her while Grammie was here visiting! Four hours twice a week!) Yesterday as we began our day I woke Avery up “Are you ready to go to your new school today and meet all of your new friends?” “Yeah!! We need to go get Grammie!!” (awwwwww) We got ready and I convinced her to let me take a few pictures of her with her “Pack Pack” on. It’s bigger than she is and the sight of her wearing it was too adorable to let pass by. We then headed to school. As we entered the classroom she immediately became clingy. This lasted for a whopping five minutes before she was busy coloring a map of the United States. It took me a whopping 30 mins to leave her class. What can I say? Momma had separation issues! (She’s my baby, leave me alone!;)) Our neighbor is a teacher at the preschool and she was able to check in on Avery a couple of times through the morning and sent pictures of her to my phone! I cherished them! However, pick up time could not come quick enough! I hurried back to her school and she instantly began telling me things she did! As she held my hand and lead me to the circle time rug, she squatted down and pointing to it said ” I sang songs!” Her teachers said that she did not say a single word until snack time but that once she did she became a chatterbox. They also told me that she kept saying “This is my school!”, and that she had a great day! She spent the day learning about the United States and even got to eat a chocolate chip cookie! All American food! The rest of the afternoon was filled with her telling me bits and pieces of her day at school in the most happy little voice! Yesterday I fell more in love with my baby girl! It’s true what they say! Just when you think there is no possible way you could love your child any more than you already do, you find out you can! <3

I will leave you with a few of her quotes from the afternoon:

“I ate my peanut butter and jeywie all up!”

“I played with my new boy!” (We are in trouble for sure!)

“I went to my new pweeschool with my teachers, bubba!”

Oh that dimple:

“I’m ready to go to my school!”:

Smiles From the Heart:

My baby girl, in all her joy!

The stories she told.

Garrett asking her all about her day when he got home! He was just as excited for her as she was!

Garrett, our Super Citizen… again. I have lost count at how many times he has been awarded this in class.
