First Day of School

Promptly at 9:00am, we walked into Max's Preschool building, hung up his backpack on "his" hook and walked into class. Mrs. Nelsen-Bayer was there to greet him. After a few minutes of him hiding behind my leg, Max found his name tag and placed it in the basket to "check-in." Not 2 seconds later, he dashed through someone's legs and was off, leaving me and my tears in the dust. We stayed for a couple more minutes to be sure he was okay (or maybe to just linger a little while for my own sake) and headed out the door without looking back. Nick came back from work in time for pick up at 11:30am and to see Max's ear-to-ear smile when he walked out of his classroom and saw all of us waiting for him was priceless. It was a great first day of school and we're excited for the year ahead.

Ready to have fun!

His hook and backpack.

Yes, this brought me to tears. Pathetic, I know!

He was in his own world and didn't bat an eyelash when we left.

In a lonesome house, I let Violet do whatever she wanted. So we walked up and down the stairs 50 times before she went down for a nap.

Every few minutes, she played with her baby doll (seen face down on the floor).

Chocolate chip cookies and milk for his first after-school snack. 

On Max: t-shirt - Mini Boden, jeans - OshKosh, sandals - StrideRite, elephant backback - Skip Hop
