The first day of preschool went really, really well.
There were big eyes, and ears that listened.
There were some tentative smiles and some that reached from ear to ear.
There was no crying.
There were two 4 1/2 year olds who felt like big shots walking into the Butterfly Classroom.
It was a GREAT first day!!
The first word out of Ella's mouth, before she even sat up in bed and opened her eyes was, PRESCHOOL -- and Zoe told me she was ready to be a butterfly!! Eating their 'I Love You Soooooo Much' breakfast of toast and eggs, filled up two hungry tummies ....
.... they had their 'Good Luck Pennies' from their Dad tucked in their backpacks, and we even had time to take some photos before we left the house.
.... and away they went!!
~ After class we took a quick picture of Ella, Zoe, Bella and Mia -- All four girls started out inECFE together so we're thrilled they're back together for their last year of preschool : )
Back home Zoe and Ella opened their treat bags from their teachers and found these items:

It was like frosting on the cake after such a great morning at school. I had to laugh, the first item Ella pulled out was a cotton ball -- she was so excited and told me 'I got some fluff!!'. Zoe was thrilled her band aide was her favorite (current) color, blue.
Day Two (today) went just as well and we also went to their first ballet class (since last May) this afternoon, which was AWESOME.
I'm really excited about this year, even though there's a part of me that can't quite take in how grown-up my little girls are looking these days.
