First Day of Preschool...

Well, the day has come…Zoey woke up so excited this morning to start her first day of preschool at Mrs. Connie’s. She got up with little fuss, which is an accomplishment for Precious as she is not a morning person. Zoey wanted to wear a dress for the first day of school and picked this purple one out herself.

She strapped on her new backpack and we headed out the door.

Mrs. Connie greeted Zoey with a hug and directed Zoey to her table. They started class with playdough. This required some serious concentration on Zoey’s part, but she reported later that this was her favorite part of the day.

Mrs. Connie read several books about starting school, and Zoey learned how to spell “R-E-D” with the help of a catchy song she has been singing all day.

Zoey caught up with some of her old friends and met a few new ones. I think she had a great day and we both made it through with no tears!!!

I am so glad that her first day went so well for both of you. I can't wait until next year when Katie gets to join her in school. Ms. Connie will have her hands full with our girls! LOL I pray that this year is great.

Thanks for the comments guys. I got the backpack from Blue Kangaroo in College Station. Christa, Zoey has missed Katie so much. Yes, I bet those two girls could give Mrs. Connie a run for her money (LOL)!!!

Oh girl I love Blue Kangaroo. I could spend TONS there. I think they do have the pants in Zoey's size. Look on and type in bandana pants and they should come up.
