Gwen's first day of PRESCHOOL!!

The big day has finally arrived. Today I sent Gwen off to her first day of preschool. Now I've been looking forward to this day for some time now. Twice a week I will have two hours just to Drake and I to do projects, clean, run errands with just one kid in the cart, and play with my baby. I've been so excited. But for some reason last night before bed, I was so sad. I couldn't believe that



Gwen was starting her schooling today and that every school year for the next 20 years, she's going to be leaving the house to head out into the world. Now that is something I haven't been ready for.Not that I have much to worry about this year. She has an AMAZING preschool teacher with the same values (she's also LDS) and she's in school with at least two other kids from our ward. But still.


She's on her own twice a week.
Anyway, she had so much fun today, she "showed and telled" her class her good witch, held the flag for the Pledge of Allegience, and she got a stamp because her light stayed green. Good job Gwenny, I love you!

What a wonderful event in a child's life... and a mom's life! We had the same event happen in our fam (Kent started preschool). It totally changes life. Well, a little at least. For the better. And life is good. Our little precious children get so much confidence from the whole going to school deal. It is amazing!
