Guess Who Started Preschool Today?

(Well here she is, my little preschooler!!!!!!!!)
If you guessed me, you were wrong...It was Luiza!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My baby is a preschooler. I can't believe it. She was such a big girl. Walking up to the school, I had tears in my eyes just thinking of how far my little girl has come. And now here she was holding my hand walking in to her new school for an amazing adventure. She had a great time, meeting new friends (15 according to her) playing outside, coloring, learning new songs, and just having a blast. Both her teacher and I really expected her to be the observer, especially during this first week. Well, we could not have been more wrong.....apparently she was quite the social butterfly, playing with all the kids, and making the ones that were having a hard time, feel at ease. What a great feeling to know that my child has a heart, and a gift for reaching out to hurting kids. IT made my heart swell when her teacher told me that.

I'm so proud of you Luiza. Thank you for being such a big girl, I love you.

I'm glad everything went well for Luiza! I just dropped Carol off this morning. She was fine until she had to go in and then she cried. She had a death grip on my leg and then yelled "Help me Mama!" as the teach whisked her away. I feel terrible. I'm sure when I go pick her up later though she will be okay. I stayed long enough outside for the teacher to tell me she had stopped crying. I don't know if it was more traumatic for her or me. I look forward to seeing a picture of little Luiza!

Luiza looks adorable!!!
You will never forget your kids first day of school.

When Tom started Kindergatden he didn't want to stay .... so I asked a nice little boy if Tom could sit next to him, he said "okay" and they still remain friends today.

Love, A.M.

What a big day for both of you!
I can't believe how much Luiza has changed...although it has been a loooong time since I've seen her.

Glad her first day of school was a good makes a momma feel so good when her little girl is turning into a sweet, independent person. Good job, Luiza! Congratulations mom!
