Wednesday morning my mom kept Bridget so that I could take Claire to school. After two days with Mimi she wasn't thrilled to leave Mimi behind, but she was excited to see friends. When she's not at day care (school) or preschool (tree school) she's constantly asking for friends.
When we walked into the school Wednesday morning the director was waiting for us to walk Claire to her classroom. We got to be the first ones in the classroom that morning. Claire walked in, but didn't get much past the doorway before she just stopped and took everything in. We moved out of the doorway and watched a few other kids and parents come in. Claire then took her teacher's hand and they walked off to get her name tag and wash her hands. I watched for a few minutes, then waved goodbye and slipped out the door.
Her first day was GREAT! The only "issue" they had was hand washing....she wouldn't finish and let the other kids have a turn. She had quite a line of kids behind her waiting for their turn, so now they are singing the ABCs, and when the song is over Claire has to be done.
She was a little tired when she got home, and fell asleep a bit earlier for nap than usual yesterday, but she couldn't wait to go back to school this morning. She had another great drop off today. She found her name tag without any help this morning, and was happily waiting to wash her hands when I left!
