It’s very hard to believe that the new 2011-2012 school year is here and that Lj officially started Pre-school today! For one… it’s too daggone HOT for school and for another… she is growing UP too soon!
I’ve been back to work for a week now and have had students for 4 school days. This morning our very family oriented principal covered a Kindergarten class for me so that I could go with Lj to class for her first day. I really hated to leave a class that I had yet to spend a full period with but then again, this is a first for Lexi that will not be repeated.
I got there before Mom and Lj and once they arrived took a few pictures. Gracious, it’s hard to not notice the difference between last year and this year. She did put up with me taking a few pictures but I still did not manage to get really great ones. 9:00 am is not a great time for photos but here they come…
Proud little 3-year old preschooler… fearless!!
Taking the steps into the building complete with new book bag!
One final “photo-opt”! This outfit sponsored by Aunt Carolyn by Crazy 8’s!
The next thing that happened was not documented due to an unprecedented appearance of “Lexi who wants her Mommy” act. (She was just fine as soon as Mommy left the room and then her best friend Rachel came in!) Not only did she manage to cry, she made Mommy cry as well. What happened to the easy first day of last year???
I promise an update of the afternoon events later….
