First Day of School Foto Frenzy

Yesterday Lindy started back to preschool. She is now in Miss 'Berta's 4 year old class and this is her last year before she starts kindergarten next fall (yep, I'm already fretting about that).

It was a rainy day (yea) and that seemed to make Miss Sleepyhead move even slower than normal in the morning. The princess does NOT like to be rushed.

I snapped a couple of shots but she wasn't cooperating too well, we were running late, and I was trying not to get my camera wet or topple over in the mud.

I didn't want to take it so far away but she wanted her lunch bag in the picture. Subsequently, she covered her leggings and all you can see are her scuffed shoes. I've learned not to send her in good shoes because they get TRASHED!

Ever since she turned four in May, my normally exuberant, independent child has been going through more anxiety about new situations and showing greater hesitance when leaving me. She was experiencing a bit of that yesterday morning.

However, she got over that hesitancy once she saw her AWESOME teacher!

She had a great first day and came home very happy and pretty worn out, too. I am really excited for Lindy and all that she'll experience this coming school year. We're proud of you big girl!!!

Our Elliana who is only two soon to be three just started Preschool three weeks ago. She is such a mama's girl that I thought it would be good for her. OH, how I miss her though. It seems that the 2 1/2 hours are the longest of the day...

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog!!
