Another year, another first day of preschool: has it been a year already? Our oh-so-big four year old strode into the classroom (a very sweet play based morning program up the street) with utmost confidence, refusing to even kiss her papa goodbye, she was so excited to play.
Just a little happy dance, courtesy of new beginnings.
I will admit, Lily quite dramatically proclaimed "Crying at home!" and ran into her room at the sight of her best friend leaving for the day (and slammed the door: seen above). But in about a minute, she was happily reading with me, and she seems to be delighting in a morning of undivided attention.
It's such a gift to be able to enjoy this time just with her and figure out the things she loves. So far, walking to the park, reading, and eating snacks top the list. A first day for the whole family, I would say.
