First Day of School

Today was Jillian's first day at Northland Cooperative Learning program. Her pre-school will be meeting 2 days a week, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9:30-12:30. The copperative program requires that all parents volunteer once every five weeks (there are 10 kids in her class) to be the parent helper for that day. It's a great system for getting the parents involved in the school.
Jillian was beyond excited this morning, she wanted to get dressed all by herself.
Jillian with her tote bag all packed and ready...this picture was taken oohhh about 8:15 this morning. She did not understand why we could not leave as soon as she got dressed and that school did not start until 9:30. Tennis anyone.... LOL
Getting into the car.... Jillian could not run fast enough to the front door. She says her new school shoes make her run VERY fast. Thanks Nanny and Poppa for Jillian's new school shoes.
This is Jillian with one of her new friends, Isabella. What big girls...Again running as fast as she could into the classroom, with her lunch box. Mrs. Hale the 2 1/2 year old teacher. After greeting Mrs. Hale with a big hug, she went straight to the table for some play-doh fun. Time for Mommy to leave now....BYE BYE!
When I arrived to pick her up, this was what she was doing.

When Jillian saw me at the door, she ran up to me and said "Mommy, I LOVE school". She had a great first day, in fact she asked to go back tomorrow.
