September 6: First Day of Preschool

Audrey has been looking forward to this day for a long time...her first day of preschool!!

Here she is at school with her friend Anna.  They are super excited that they get to be in the same class!
This is outside of her classroom, the Yellow Room.
She seemed to have a good morning.  She told me that her favorite parts of the day were snacktime (she had goldfish and juice) and playing on the playground (she went down the slide three times and drove a car).  She also learned a new song, but she can't remember the words yet.  And she colored a picture.  Fun times!

I wasn't too sentimental about her going to school for the first time.  I'm really just excited for her, because I think she is going to love it.  But as I was driving to pick her up from school, I drove past the middle school where she will go (assuming we stay in this house that long).  Thinking of her someday being old enough to go to middle school did make me kind of sad. 

After school, we took her out for a celebratory lunch at McDonalds.  She is always a fan of going to McDonalds, but she has been asking for months to go to the McDondalds that has the inside slide.  So finally today we went to the McDonalds with the big inside slide.  Audrey ate her meal very quickly and spent most of her time playing in the playland with all the other kids.

Watching her fearlessly climb all the way to the top by herself and watching her talk and interact with all the other kids (who were complete strangers to her) made me so proud.  Not too long ago she was very clingy and refused to do much on her own without holding an adult's hand.  She is growing up to be such an independent and outgoing little girl, and I'm excited to see all that is in store for her this year in preschool!
