Maisy's First Day of Preschool

Maisy, Becky and Maren sending Maisy off

Today was Maisy’s first day at preschool. Right when she woke up this morning she was squealing in delight knowing that school was just around the corner.  She did wonderfully!  Todd, Maren and I went in to take a quick tour (Todd hadn’t previously seen the school).  The second we walked in the door Maisy was off and getting into projects.  She had a great day at school full of beading (she brought home a lovely necklace), painting and playing.  She had no incidences with other kids and the teachers were all very impressed by her- knowing it was her first day and knowing her age.  We are so proud of her.  I didn’t out and out cry, but I welled up a good 5 times or so!  I made sure to stay brave for Maisy!  Not that she needed any bravery.  As we were leaving and saying our goodbyes she simply looked up and said, “Goodbye, Mom, Goodbye, Dad.”  When I was explaining to her when I was going to come and pick her up, she said that she wanted to stay all day and I didn’t need to come get her after lunch.

After Maren and I arrived back home, she went down for a nap and I did some chores.  With our free time after Maren woke up from her nap we went to visit baby Velia!

When Maisy got home and I asked her about her day.  I got about two understandable sentences then she just shook her head in a circular motion, jabbered and made gestures like crazy, smiling the whole time.  I’m guessing the day was slightly overwhelming with lots going on, but she managed it all very well!  On the plus side, she’s very much looking forward to going back.  She did say that she missed Maren, which I thought was very sweet.

We were lucky enough to have Papa J make the trip down from Tahoe to visit us tonight.  The girls are thoroughly enjoying their time with him.  They are all so cute together.

We went to Addie Pizza Pie’s for dinner.  Yum!

Much love, Todd, Becky, Maisy and Maren
