This past Monday was a very busy day in our house ~ our oldest (Aubrey) started her first day of Pre-K at Thomas Jefferson Elementary. She is officially a "Proud Patriot."
She was such a "Big" girl despite her size, she got on the bus all on her own and rode it to school and back without any worries. However, you can bet I had the phone on me at all times. She has a little over an hour bus ride each way, but even after the first week, she is still doing great.
Aubrey is loving her school, teachers and all the new things she is able to do and learn. However, she has had to "slip her card" once already because she didn't want to sit on the carpet when she was suppose to. So this is something for us to work with her at home, as well as, letting her feel rewarded for doing a good job at school and at home.
She is more than excited every morning to go to school, which makes this mommy very happy to send her, despite the early mornings.This is a new adventure for all of us. David and Madeline still haven't quite figured out "sissy leaving for school," but luckily all but 1 day this week they were still asleep when I walked her down the driveway to catch the bus.
We are so proud of Aubrey and just had to share the picture above of her on her first day of school. I asked her if she was happy to go to school and she said yes. I said, show me smile that says you are happy to go to school and this was the smile I got ~ she was beyond nervous. She has done amazing though! Now if only the other two will follow suit when it is there turn.
