We're Almost There

Whew! The first day of Pre-K is almost here. Everyday The Princess has asked if she will be going to “big school” today. If you recall, earlier in the week I mentioned that we were scheduled for a conference with her teacher today. I might add, that our first time being at the school went well. My husband and I both took the day off from work to attend the meeting. We were both so exited, we couldn't stand it!

When we arrived at the school, The Princess in her true fashion, hid behind me when any of the teachers or administrators spoke to her. Although The Princess can REALLY show herself at home, this is not the case out in public. She is extremely shy when it comes to meeting new faces or being in a new environment. While we were waiting, she met another little girl, Cianni, that will be attending Pre-K as well. We found out later that Cianni will not be in The Princess' class.

Anyway, after being greeted at the front office, we made our way to her classroom. Her teacher, Ms Davis, greeted us with a warm welcome and invited us to take a tour of the classroom. The Princess even got the opportunity to sit in her assigned seat. HOW EXCITING! Ms. Davis went over what the students will be doing in the class. The Princess had the chance to see her cubby and while we talked with Ms. Davis, she prepared us a meal in the play kitchen. How sweet of her.

To make a long story short, we are all looking forward to The Princess starting "Big School". I will be sure to let you know how the first day went. Please be sure to share your first day of school adventures, fiascos, break-downs, etc.

What a sweet picture! OMG! I can't believe you're here... in the blogosphere. When I saw the comment I was like Tina F.? I have a Tina blogging friend in the UK and I was wondering why she changed her name and added the F.

I was just thinking about you the other day. Then I looked at your profile and realized I missed your birthday. It says you're 39... first I was like "No, that's not right." Then I was like "Oh crap! April!"

I can't wait to see pics of the first day of Pre-k... let's exchange links.
