Well, it's official. Our daughter Joelle is now in school. She went for her first day of pre-school today and it was a huge success! When she came running into my room first thing this morning, she had a huge smile on her face as she exclaimed, "Pre-School today!"

And then, just like that, we were there. Being the keener that I am, we were the first ones there so we just stood in the lobby until someone else got there, taking the private opportunity to pray with Joelle. Once others started arriving, we followed their lead by taking off Joelle's outdoor shoes and putting on her indoor shoes. I couldn't resist taking this picture of her outdoor shoes on the bright orange shelf nestled between her classmates' shoes (yes, I'm the dorky Mother who snaps pictures of everything -- but it's a cute picture, isn't it?).
It took me awhile to get a lot details out of her about her morning (she doesn't usually like to be bombarded with quesitons), but she did eventually start talking about it more and more. She also had fun calling her Daddy and one of her Grandma's to tell them about her first day at Pre-School.
One thing I wasn't prepared for was to have immediate fund-raisers! This is pre-school, afterall! I wasn't expecting this till at least Kindergarden.
Anyway -- I'm not going to harrass any of you (except for family of course...hee hee hee!). But if any of you happen to be interested in Regal products (and live in close proximity to me) feel free to let me know!
Now it's seven sleeps until she gets to go back! I'm so glad that this was a positive experience for her and I am so happy that we made this decision. Thanks to all of you who have been asking her about it and who wished her a good first day. It went better than I could've hoped for.
