Abby's first day of school

It was that time again, time for school. Abby goes to school at our church. Tuesday - Friday from 9am-2pm. It's perfect because I only work part-time and I work at the church while she is in school. This year was a little harder for me. One reason was that they kept calling her class the two-year old class. She was only 22 months when she started, why were they trying to age my baby. :( We had a great "meet the teacher" and started to feel better about the whole thing. She started on Sept 1st (yes, I know this post is a month old)

Before we left for school, we headed out front for pictures. As usual, she has to pick a flower or two when she walks out the door.

I love this little fake smile she's been doing lately. I'm sure it will get old soon enough, but for now, I love it!

I got her a back pack for school this year. I didn't want her to be the only kid in the "two year old" class that still carried a diaper bag. She looks so big to me with it on.


There were so many people in the lobby that she got a little nervous about what we were about to do. And yes, I use her stroller to carry everything in the building. She walks.

"I guess I'll go in Momma. But this pack-pack is too heavy"

Right as we walked in, she headed straight for the Music class. She knew right where everything was and was so excited. I had to inform her that she only goes to Music on Thursdays and Fridays. Her response was to walk out in the hall and throw her pillow on the floor.

Here we are......the Hug Zone. This is where you hug your sweet baby and they let them walk into the classroom all by themselves. I'm getting emotional thinking about it.

She was trying to act sad for me. Right as she walked in, saying no no no no the whole time, she walked right over to the coloring station and started playing.

She had a GREAT first day at school and has already learned so much in the past two weeks. She really loves it. Even though when I pick her up, she has to start "pretend" crying to make me feel like she has had a horrible day.
