First Day of Preschool (192)

Avery started preschool today. She's been so excited for it, that she could hardly stand it. Wait. Maybe it was me who was so excited. Hooray for preschool! She was up at 7:15 wanting to get dressed and ready to go. It doesn't start until 9:30. I was able to put her off while I got Tyler and Cameron ready, but had to give in at 8:00 because they were gone. She walked around the house wearing her backpack for the next hour. I decided to get there a little early so that she could get acquainted with the room, teachers, her cubby, etc. All of my kids have gone to the preschool at Granger High School. It's taught by the Child Development students, their teacher as well as a paid, adult preschool advisor/teacher. It was a really great preschool for my boys and I'm sure Avery will love it as well. I'm not sure exactly how long it's been around, but it's been for a lot longer than I thought. Mrs. Merryhew, the child development teacher, told a story about something that happened while her youngest daughter was in preschool there. Her daughter is now 31. That would mean that this happened 27 years ago. I've loved it there and plan to enroll Peyton there when he's old enough. Avery had a great time and can't wait to go back. It's too bad that it's every other day. She's going to be disappointed tomorrow morning when I tell her there's no school.

While she was at school, I took the opportunity to get in a little exercise. I went to my local fitness center and walked around the outside track while pushing Peyton in the stroller. We've done this before, but for some reason he really enjoyed it today. He was singing, yelling and happy screaming almost the whole time. (He fell asleep for the last 5 minutes.) Maybe that's because it was just the two of us. (That's what I'm going to think.) I don't know exactly what the distance is around the track, but it only took me about 20 minutes to do it once. I wanted to go at least twice, but there was a parent's meeting at the preschool. I didn't get to the track until just after 10:00 and I had to do a little shopping after that. Preschool gets out at 12:00 and I didn't want to push my luck with time. I'm planning to go tomorrow and go around it at least 2 times.

Ready to go. I don't know what's up with the gangsta pose.

Since we were early, she got to play with some of the toys while they waited for the other kids to get there.

It's always better to be there early than late, especially on the first day of school!

I can't WAIT until Olivia can go! I am sending her to the Granger High one--much cheaper for me and just as good!

I wish I would have gotten TJ enrolled. Dang that silly husband of mine. He would have loved it. Although he is thoroughly enjoying his days at Jillene's as a vampire!!

All 3 of my children went there too. A great affordable preschool.
