Today was Rachel’s first day of school this school year. She is in the 4-year-old preschool class. She was very excited to go, and this morning went very smoothly. This year is different because instead of walking her into the school myself (and helping her use the potty and wash her hands) we drop her off in a carpool lane. I learned that if I leave my house with the perfect amount of time for the ride, I will get caught behind a school bus in my neighborhood, and I will end up in the back of the long carpool line. (Okay, it wasn’t that long.) Tomorrow we’ll leave a little earlier.
Rachel was a little unsure when we got to the school, but pretty soon she was off.
When it came time to pick her up I got there early (a little too early) and ended up in the “early carpool” line, so I had to go back to another carpool line. So Rachel learned some stuff today, and so did I.
Rachel said that she really like it a lot. Apparently they learned about gingerbread men. That’s what she kept on talking about, and sure enough, there was a gingerbread man that she had colored, in her backpack.
Gabi’s first day of preschool (1 day a week) starts tomorrow, but we’ve got a picture from today anyway.
