The first day of preschool (finally!)

Vivian's real first day of preschool should have been last Thursday, but we had planned a big family beach trip back before we knew she'd be going to school on Thursdays. Then her next first day would have been Tuesday, but she decided to catch her brother's nasty virus over the weekend and was still sick. But finally the day came! My kids are NOT morning people, so getting her up and ready this morning was a bit challenging. We made it though, and even had time for some photos before school:

We climbed the giant hill to her school, then realized we were too early, so went halfway back down and played at the park for a bit. Then back up the hill to drop Vivian off. Seriously, she took off her shoes, went in and that was it.  She had to be forced to come back to hug and kiss us goodbye.

Vivian's always been my clingy kid- the one with separation anxiety. She's brave and outgoing when her brother is around, but on her own she's always been shy. Apparently not anymore. She's so excited to be a big girl and go to school. She's been asking about it for over a year now.  I hadn't planned to put her in preschool at 3 (mostly because it's expensive and I am cheap) but I think we made the right decision.

My baby is growing up!
