Wednesday, August 29th, Laurel Cupit began her first day of pre-school. She handled the transition smoothly. When asked to recount what she did at school, her only response was, "We played follow the leader!" She seemed very happy and excited to go back on Friday. It seems she enjoyed eating lunch at school and playing with toys. She didn't have a potty accident and didn't go to timeout, so the day should be counted as a success! So far, she likes her teacher, Ms. Tracy. She has 13 children in her class and she goes from 9:30 to 1 pm three days a week.

Her mom didn't shed a tear, and unlike many mothers, felt very little sadness when dropping her off. Her mom was a little sad that Laurel didn't have more to report about her day. Laurel's Mimi counseled Laurel's mom that from here on out, it will be at Laurel's discretion what information gets reported at home. This will take a while to get used to.

Laurel's favorite part about going to school is wearing a "pack back."

I know what you mean, I would love to send Emma off for a few days a week. Maybe next year!

I'm so glad that it was an easy transition for both of you! I told Ainsly about Laurel going to school and now she wants to go! Maybe next year.

I have gotten used to sending Brennan every day, and his favorite part of the day is 'snack time'. He can hardly wait to pick out which backpack he will bring(he has three-none purchased just for school) and get locked in the car to get to school. The child quickly does his journal work and tells me, "Bye Mommy, it's time for you to GO!"
I am glad Laurel is doing so well.

So glad that everything went well. That can be hard when you have been with her every day, all day for the last 3 years! It will be hard for me when someone else knows more about what my kids do during the day than I do!
