First Day!

Lily had her first days of Pre-school yesterday and today! Yesterday was an "ease in" day with the parents and today was the first official drop-off day!! She did great! She cried at the drop-off which didn't make it easy for Mommy but I knew she would do OK. Her teacher called me at about 9:30 a.m. and told me she had calmed down and was playing dolls and tea party with a new little friend. She was doing fine! I was so happy to hear it.

When I went to pick her up she was very happy to see me and very excited to tell me what they did during the day. Her teachers were very pleased with how well all of the children did for their first day. They played on the playground, played trucks and tea party, colored pictures, read 2 stories, had snack time and had music class. It was a busy morning. One of her teachers said she did exceptionally well in music class!! I was so proud! She knew how to play all of the instruments and the teacher even said "Lily could have taught the class!". It made me laugh and feel very good too. Definitely some musical abilities there! Those Music Together classes have really paid off!

We are just so proud of her and can't believe how fast she is growing up. I am sure it will be a fun-filled first year in pre-school with a lot of neat activities! We are looking forward to it!

Here are a few pictures of her on her first day. She was super excited!

And this picture is a picture they colored the first day. The teachers put them in frames and used them to decorate the classroom. Pretty cute!

Thanks for checking in!
