First Day of School

Last Year (3 Years Old):
Yes....we were all smiles on the first day of school here, however, this smile did not return to her face until, oh, I don't know...December. Took her a while to warm up to the whole school thing.

Today (4 Years Old):
Now, despite her somber expression here, she was pretty excited to go to her new school. We met her teacher a few weeks ago when she came to visit us in our home. (That was good for about 3 happy Braelyn points.) Yesterday, we got to visit her classroom and meet most of the friends in her class. (Good for 5 happy Braelyn points.) We also got to meet, not just one, but the TWO class pets...Daisy the hamster, and Freddy the frog. (Good for a dozen happy Braelyn points!) So...Children of the Woodlands earned a lot of love before the big day, and it definitely paid off. She walked into her classroom brave as can be, and with not one tear.
When I picked her up this afternoon she was all smiles...ready to go back on Thursday. (That's good for about one hundred happy mom points! :) YEA!
