Ellie's First Day of Preschool
Well, my baby is big enough for school, and even if it's preschool it was a big day for us. I took a few more pics with her than the others. The first four are of her before -- sweet (mostly), confident, and a bit silly. The next one is of actually walking in; I think it sunk in that I was leaving her with a roomful of kids that were bigger than her (she's the youngest one right now, the three year old class starts in oct). After I came back to get her I had a happy girl on my hands. Big smile. And so independent. I was saying goodbye to Owen and turn around -- she's already waiting patiently for me at the sidewalk.
It's amazing the paths these little ones take. At the start they would die without you -- depend on you for every ounce of nutrition. And now she's just walking home from school without me (practically). Crazy. I know, I know -- she'll be in drivers ed before I know it!!!
