Right now (2:00pm) Ella and Zoe are both zonked out.
They had such a FUN and FULL morning at preschool,
and they think they are so big now.
I do think they both grew a bit while they were gone though : )
This morning the girls had an 'I Love You SOOO Much Breakfast'
(a super cute heart-shaped egg and toast recipe I saw in Parents magazine -- mine didn't look as good as the picture in the magazine, but the girls thought it was the best and ate it all up). They also got brand-new shiny pennies from their Dad -- their 'Good Luck Pennies' (which I think is going to be a yearly tradition between the three of them). They tucked their pennies in their backpacks and will now always have that little extra good luck with them when they're at school, and will remember how much their Daddy loves them and how much he thinks of them, even when they're not together.
I thought that was SOOOO sweet!
Then it was time to smile for pictures before we left.
Little Miss Preschooler Ella
. . . until I started talking about wearing underpants on my head,
which they thought was pretty funny.
. . . they found their places at circle time and looked at books.
I stayed in the hall for a little bit, listening without being seen : )
And had a good laugh when Ms. Lisa individually asked the children to say their names.
Some kids answered loud and clear.
Some kids answered quietly.
Some kids wouldn't answer.
Zoe was one of those kids, but when Ms. Lisa said 'Your name is Zoe, right? I am sooo glad you are here today!', Zoe answered 'YES!' (which was very typical Zoe -- concise and to the point).
Then it was Eunice's turn (the little girl between Zoe and Ella).
But before Eunice could say her name,
Ella said 'and I am Ella -- Zoe's sister'. Ha, so Ella : )
Ms. Lisa said 'Hi Ella, I am sooo glad you are here too!'.
And THEN it was Eunice's turn : )
. . . and then Ella was dismissed.
They both talked the whole way home --
at the same time.
They had a great first day, so Tom and I did too.
Their favorite parts? Playing, the story about 'friends', the song about 'Wibble Wobble' (even though they didn't dance but they will next time), the 'First Day Floats' for snack, the hooks for their backpacks and of course -- the playground.
Ella and Zoe -- they think they are so big now.
And I really do think they grew while they were gone --
at least a little bit : )
