Tuesday morning she was excited to go to her new school. She was hesitant because she thought none of the other kids would play with her, but she was ready. She insisted on the princess dress and braids. I can't believe she already has such strong opinions on her clothes and hair. We are in trouble! It was finally time to go, so that means time for pictures. So I say "Caroline, stand up nice and tall so I can take your picture."
This is her version of nice and tall.
I try to correct myself by saying "Not on your tip-toes. You need to put your heels down.
I guess she did what I asked of her!
Here is what we ended up with. Such a big girl!
She was very excited about getting to wear her name tag necklace. We must have tried it on a hundred times the week before.
She walked right in to her classroom. There is a baby gate across the door so the parents don't actually enter the room. You say goodbye in the hall and the child goes on in. Once she was in she did turn around and look at me with a look that said "Wait a minute. How did I end up in here." She was not crying, so I took off.
She finished her first day. Here she is being walked to the car by one of her teachers. She had a great day!
