First Day of School

OK, I'll admit... I was one of those moms that was at Walmart last night at 9:30 p.m. doing last minute looking around. It was insane! This school (MDO) thing kind of snuck up on me because I won't start working till next week. Going to Walmart for bread for lunch, I ventured to the school aisle and found a special Princess backpack and outfit for Claire. She has been SOOOO excited all weekend and told me Saturday, "Mom, I can't wait to go to school everyday!" Only 2 more years that I want to cherish with my big girl and it hit me hard when she said that. Anyway, here are the pictures from this morning. As soon as I surprised her with the backpack, she wouldn't take it off for anything - hence the first pic feeding Rollo WITH the backpack on. She looks SO big to me and gets more beautiful everyday! Her teacher's name is Ms. Robin and is new to the program. She's really young and looked so nervous but she had a veteran helping her out for her first day - that made mommy feel a lot better! There are only 5 kids in the class so it won't be too hard to handle. She will go once a week so I can go to work and my sweet, amazing friend Stef will be watching Eden again for us.

Well, Eden's stirring so gotta run. Hoping to take Claire somewhere for a special after school treat for her first day. Probably Starbuck's so I can get myself a treat too!

My sweet Claire going to school...I can remember sending my children off to school and feeling a tug at my heartstrings too...but that is the way it is planned. Knowing that she is enjoying it means that you are doing a great job mom and dad giving her the love and security to venture forth from the nest! Love to all, Grandma
