Adelyn's 1st day of Preschool!!

Today, Adelyn attended her 1st day of preschool!  And you wanna know who cried about it....me!  Who would have thought?!?  Last night, I just couldn't get over the thought of my baby (ok, she's 3, but she'll always by my 1st baby) going to school.  I always had a hard time anticipating school, and here I am, anticipating school again and crying about it.  But when the morning of the 1st day of school came, it was game time, and there were no tears to be had! We made eggs for breakfast, grabbed her lunch box and headed to school.  Lisee met us there, which was a huge help b/c Braden was not so pleased about the seeing his Sunday school teacher, whom he though was going to take him, and he burst into tears.  So I guess there were a few tears on school day #1, but not Adelyn's.  Adelyn walked in with her friend Turned, hung up her lunch box, used the potty, and marched right into class, without looking back.  I had anticipated tears, and possibly even running (that is what her daddy did in 1st grade) but not for her!  She did beautifully, and said she had a lot of fun the whole time.  When I asked her what she did at school, she said, "we played, and played and played and it was lots of fun."  Well, I guess she sees school as playing, which is a wonderful thing.  And I got some one-on-one play time with Braden during the 3 hours, which was definitely a good thing as well.  And, to top it all off, Adelyn slept for 3hours during her nap.  Yay for a successful 1st day of school!
