Since sometime last spring, Tatiana has been SUPER excited to go to “school”. Last school year, she watched her cousins Riley and Ashley, and some of the other kids at daycare go to school. In addition, she has a really uncanny knack for recognizing buildings around town and remembering EXACTLY what they are (“Oh! It’s the post office! Oh! It’s the dime store – they give me pretzels!”). Last spring, Gramma Darlin took Tati to “Riley’s school” once to pick Riley up. From then on, Tati was PSYCHED to go to school. And the countdown began…
All summer mama heard “OH! There’s *MY* school!”, and “Mama, can we go to the playground at *MY* school"?”. Etc, etc and repeat!
Today was FINALLY the big day! While most of the kids started yesterday, Tati’s 1st preschool will be Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings, so she started this morning. But wait – did I just say “1st preschool”? Yes! I did! Right now she’s enrolled into two different programs. I’ll spare you all the details (ok, I tried to type it all out, but it’s seriously such a long story that even I was getting bored typing it, so you’re saved!) but suffice it to say that right now the schedule will be M-W-F mornings and then Monday through Thursday afternoons. The big test will be Monday and Wednesday – both LONG days. If it’s too much, we’ll drop one.
So, on to the part you’re all here for… PICTURES!
Here we are! Time to go!
