Often as I have looked at blogs over the years, I have come across many first day of preschool
pictures. I have always thought they were sweet with the happy little 3 or 4 year old all
bright eyed and bushy tailed, ready for school.
It's amazing the emotions that arise from your own child hitting this milestone. It's all I've been talking about...
sorry family and friends.
As the day approached, Caroline was so excited. I was thrilled as well to
know that she would be interacting with so many fun children, teachers, and new activities.
As the day grew closer, Caroline grew more giddy and I started to notice a little twinge in my heart when I thought of her leaving 2 times a week for 3 hours.
The night before she started, Adam gave her a father's blessing for the upcoming school year. Both Adam and I were so touched by how serious Caroline took this. I had a hard time being reverent myself because I couldn't help but watch Caroline throughout it as her little eyelids twitched from trying so hard to keep them shut.
All of the sudden she looked so big sitting in the tall back chair.
After she said in her sweet little voice, "Thanks for the blessing dad."
What a love.
So as a family we went to drop her off. We took pictures, walked her inside, and Caroline started doing what she does best....being a social butterfly. She was ready to be there, and I was not ready to say bye for 3 hours. I left in tears with Adam's arm around me telling me it would be ok, instead of him having
to comfort Caroline who was fine :)
....and I was thrilled to score this little gem for Caroline in Georgetown at a cute little children's boutique.
Polka dots, scalloped eyes, leaf zippers, a cute little place for her name inside....could you just die?
