1st Day of Preschool

The kids had a great first day. Mai woke up excited and couldn't wait to go to school. When I asked to take her picture, so told me we couldn't do it in front of the red door, she wanted it with the trees behind her (ugh photographer's kid-lol). When I told her to stand near T she kept grabbing him in this tight bear hug and grabbing his hand and tugging him along, ready for her new adventure. Oh they melt my heart. Mai was such a trooper and rain to her room. As I got ready to leave she grabbed me real close and started to whimper. When I told her she'd have a great day she said "no mom, you forgot to say "Hasta Pasta" which is grandpa's special way of saying bye. I said "Hasta Pasta" and she rain off to play with her new friends :) T was a little shakier and had a rough drop off, but by pick up he was one happy camper and super excited to see mommy. Oh how I love their faces when I walk in the door at school! My day was nice and uneventful. I'm excited about my sweet group of kids and am looking forward to a great year.

Not only do my kids have a plethora of Grandmas, but they are lucky to have 2 living Great Grandmas. Thomas went in for surgery yesterday and Ma was generous enough to come down and spend the day with Mai and then spent the night so she could have some time with Thomas as well.
 They had a blast decorating cupcakes.
 She even brought down lots of new board books for Thomas. Mai has been reading them to him all day and even fell asleep tonight reading herself The Zoo Book.

Such lucky little babies!
