First Day Jitters?
Evie had her first day of PreK today and it went off without a hitch. She told me on the way that she was a little nervous to go for 4 days but that she was a big girl now and that's what big girls do. I was a little teary before we left thinking about my baby girl growing up so fast.
We arrived a few minutes early and had a chance to relax before rushing into the classroom. Evie was thrilled to be there and felt so special that her teacher noticed her beautiful dress. Evie sat right down and started her morning work. I asked her if she was ready for me to leave and she said, "yes, after a hug and a kiss." Of course, that sounded good to me. Henry wanted to stay in the Giraffe class with Evie. Sister pointed out that Henry is not a giraffe because he is a Koala.
I thought about Evie all day and could not wait to see her. She was so excited to see me and tell me about her day. Evie has decided that she wants to go to school 10 days in a row. I am thrilled for such a wonderful first day of PreK and thankful for sweet teachers for Evie.
