Last Tuesday was Megan's first day of going back to school. I decided to keep her home over the summer since I would be home and I wanted to spend as much time with the girls as I could (what was I thinking?!- LOL!) I was also able to keep her home for an additional two weeks and not start her until the first of September. Her preschool starts the same time that the public schools start, but I'm thankful she stayed home with me for the additional two weeks.
I was really nervous about her going back. Because of her shy and timid personality, I wasn't sure if we'd have an easy transition back to school.
We went to her open house several weeks ago and saw her teacher and her classroom, but she kept asking for Miss Juju, her teacher last year. Even on the way to school Tuesday morning she would say, "I want my Juju."
I managed to get her backpack packed of cloth diapers for the week, and two changes of clothes in case she had accidents, along with her pillow pet and blanket, and we took her dede bunny on the first day.
I planned to get up earlier than I had been so I'd have time to take her first day of school pictures.
After a few, she was ready to get in the car and go.
We dropped Gretchen off at kindergarten, and then headed to preschool.
Meggie walked right in like a champ, after stopping to get a drink at the water fountain.
She walked right into her class, and to one of the centers, and then she found the vacuum and started to vacuum the floor. I managed to get all of her things put away, and went over to tell her bye and give her a kiss, and that's when she started to cry a bit.
Her teacher took her and they went to the table where her friends were sitting (they had been reading a book) and by the time I walked out the door, Meggie was happy.
Her teacher said she had a great day! She took a two hour nap and rather than sleeping with her Dede bunny, she slept with a baby doll. #typicalMeggie
That day, Addy and I ran tons of errands.
I washed my face with coconut oil and didn't get it washed off well enough, so my bangs felt greasy all day. #IswearIwashedmyhair.
Addy and I were home for an hour before we had to go pick up the girls. Poor thing had just fallen asleep when it was time to go.
That evening, my house looked like this.
And, both of the girls were dancing.
Wednesday was Meggie's 2nd day of preschool. G picked out her heart dress, and since Meggie has the same one, I decided to dress them alike. Pigtails, sparkly Toms, and all.
Giving each other hugs before school.
Thankfully, Addy and I stayed home all day Tuesday, but I was busy cleaning out and reorganizing toys! Meggie had another great day, and when it was time to go she said, "Bye friends, bye Harper."
